Chaldean Americans: Changing Conceptions of Ethnic Identity
Mary C. Sengstock
Chaldean Americans is an analysis of a small but important ethnic minority. Particularly in the last 30 years of the twentieth century, Chaldeans are illustrative of the impact of the influx of the new immigrant wave which followed the change in American immigration laws in the late 1960s. Chaldeans also illustrate the characteristics of ethnic communities in general and their adaption to American society and culture. This book is the only comprehensive analysis of the social and cultural dimensions of the Iraqi community in the Detroit Metropolitan Area at the time of publication.
