Abstract: Adaptation of Arab Immigrants to Australia outlines the psychological problems that were overcome, and the social and cultural adaptations which were made, by Arab immigrants in the process of settling to Australia. This book looks at psychological issues that emerged out of migration and adaptation to Australia. It concentrates on socio-cultural factors, especially the maintenance of traditional Arab religious practices, family values, language and personal identity. It evaluates the respondents' perceptions of the ways the Anglo Australian host society had responded to Arab immigrants and their children and highlights the importance of other Australians having the opportunity to learn about Arab peoples and their culture, as a means of increasing understanding and minimising suspicion and discrimination.
