Philip Hitti’s, The Syrians in America, is the first academic study to discuss the immigration of Arabs to the United States. Hitti begins by giving an account of the historic and geographic background of the “Syrians” (a term loosely used to describe Arabs from modern Syria and its neighboring countries). He then describes the immigration, the social and educational conditions of the immigrants, and the religious problems and issues that arose as a result of the immigration. An appendix is given listing the various religious communities in the United States.

The Acts of Saint George and the Story of his Father

From the Syriac and Garshuni Versions
ISBN: 978-1-59333-784-1
One of the most enduring of the saints, Saint George has seldom failed to capture the imagination of Christian readers, both ancient and modern. The Acts of Saint George, originally written in Greek, quickly spread to many linguistic traditions in the church of late antiquity. Presented here in vocalized Syriac and Arabic, the original text of the Acts is made easily accessible to readers of these languages. A detailed introduction in English summarizes the hagiography for those unacquainted with the Semitic languages. The account follows the hagiographic practice of describing the trials, steadfast faith, and martyrdom of the saint. Also included is the story of the father of Saint George, recorded in Syriac.

A Brief Introduction to the Semitic Languages

ISBN: 978-1-61719-860-1
With a written history of nearly five thousand years, the Semitic languages comprise one of the world’s earliest and longest attested families. This volume provides an overview of this important language family, including both ancient and modern languages. After a brief introduction to the history of the family and its internal classification, subsequent chapters cover topics in phonology, morphology, syntax, and lexicon. Each chapter describes features that are characteristic of the Semitic language family as a whole, as well as some of the more extraordinary developments that take place in the individual languages.
