Palestinians in Honduras? Yes, since the nineteenth century, and doing very well, indeed. Dollar, Dove, and Eagle, the first full-length description of Palestinian immigration to Latin America, is based on historical and ethnographic research in Honduras, Israel, and the West Bank. Tracing one long-standing Palestinian migratory stream from Bethlehem and its environs, Nancie González describes the conditions in Bethlehem that initially precipitated the Palestinian exodus as well as the Honduran setting in which the Palestinians found themselves. Their successful economic integration into their host country is sharply contrasted with their sociocultural separateness. Complete acculturation has been frustrated by the continuing migrant stream from the West Bank. made up of individuals increasingly adamant about retaining their Palestinian identity.
Drawing extensively on the work of a spectrum of disciplines embracing history, sociology, political science, and business management, Dollar, Dove, and Eagle effectively broadens our knowledge of both the Middle East and Latin America. It is essential reading for those interested in Middle Eastern studies, ethnicity, migration, and economic development.
