This introductory chapter sets out the book’s main themes. The book examines the history of African American engagement with the Arab world within the context of shifting colonial borders and racial ideologies in the United States and the Arab world, beginning in the mid-nineteenth century. It uncovers a political imaginary that has been forged by black and Arab intellectuals throughout the post-U.S. Civil War/post-Ottoman era. The book shows how transformations in governance initiated by expanding colonial and imperial rule in the United States and in the Middle East, as well as nationalist awakenings on the part of minorities, inspired corresponding transformations in Afro-Arab political imaginaries.

Keywords:   Afro-Arab political imaginaries, governance, African American, Arab world, colonial rule, imperial rule
