Synopsis

A book by Arab Canadians about Arab Canadians written for Arab Canadians, as well as Canadians at large, describing the current situation of immigration into Canada, and speculating on how the Arab Spring might influence the place and role of future generations of Arab Canadians in Canadian society. "In My Arab Spring, My Canada, authors Qais Ghanem and Elie M. Nasrallah have given this country, their country, a valuable gift. This book -- co-authored by a Muslim and a Christian, both of Arab descent, both proud Canadians -- is a pocket guide for those who come from the Middle East as well as a useful reference for those already here. Nasrallah has roots that go all the way back to the Titanic, so these are hardly starry-eyed or discouraged newcomers. They examine immigration from earliest days to today and they look to the future with great optimism."   Roy MacGregor, author of Canadians: A Portrait of a Country and Its People
