504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 349-362) and 
505 0  Arab populations under Ottoman rule : a background -- The 
       Syrian nationalism of the Mahjar press -- Soldiers for 
       Syria before World War I : the Free Syria Society -- The 
       Syria idea and the New Syria Party -- The mandate years 
       and the diaspora : the Arab National League and a 
       historical context for Arab American narrative -- The Arab

       identity -- The Institute of Arab American Affairs : Arab

520    While conventional wisdom points to the Arab-Israeli War 
       of 1967 as the gateway for the founding of the first Arab 
       American national political organization, such advocacy in
       fact began with the Syrian nationalist movement, which 
       emerged from immigration trends at the turn of the last 
       century. Bringing this long-neglected history to life, The
       Making of Arab Americans overturns the notion of an Arab 
       population that was too diverse to share common goals. 
       Tracing the forgotten histories of the Free Syria Society,
       the New Syria Party, the Arab National League, and the 
       Institute of Arab American Affairs, the book restores a 
       timely aspect of our understanding of an area (then called
       Syria) that comprises modern-day Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, 
       Israel, and Palestine. Hani Bawardi examines the numerous 
       Arab American political advocacy organizations that 
       thrived before World War I, showing how they influenced 
       Syrian and Arab nationalism. He further offers an in-depth
       analysis exploring how World War II helped introduce a new
       Arab American identity as priorities shifted and the quest
       for assimilation intensified. In addition, the book 
       enriches our understanding of the years leading to the 
       Cold War by tracing both the Arab National League's 
       transition to the Institute of Arab American Affairs and 
       new campaigns to enhance mutual understanding between the 
       United States and the Middle East. Illustrated with a 
       wealth of previously unpublished photographs and 
       manuscripts, The Making of Arab Americans provides crucial
       insight for contemporary dialogues.
