ANNC: New Book--Strangers in the West: The Syrian Colony of New York City, 1880-1900

I wanted to let my fellow scholars know that my new book, Strangers in the West: The Syrian Colony of New York City, 1880-1900 is now available both on Amazon (as an ebook and paperback) and directly from the publisher. It is the first and only ethnography of the "mother colony" of the Syrian diaspora in the United States.

Best regards,
