Arabs in Latin America: a History of Emigration
This book, jointly published by Casa Árabe and Siglo XXI, includes nine works by different authors edited by the Moroccan historian Abdeluahed Akmir.
Arab migration to the New World developed mainly from the last two decades of the 19th century to the 1940s and involved tens of thousands of people who established numerous Latin American communities that were highly socially dynamic. These communities produced well-known personalities in the field of politics, business, literature, music and art.
Despite the importance of the Arab presence in Latin America, few studies are devoted to the phenomenon. The book Arabs in Latin America, originally published in 2006, seeks to help fill this gap and contains additional new material.
