Here are some quotations from the book:
"(T)here is a very small number of Iranians living in the same community; in other words, in most places there is no 'Little Persia' like there is a 'Chinatown.' Iranian children in American are not able to interact with a large number of Iranian cultural and educational centers in the United States. And perhaps more importantly, there is a lack of firm committment on the part of Iranian parents to be carriers and passers of their culture to their children." (Ch. 1)
"Iranian immigrants have assimilated into American culture at a much faster pace than other immigrants. Most Iranian-Americans ... are unfamiliar with the culture of their parents. The lack of ethnic community and the greater contact with the American culture and lifestyle have diluted a devotion to Iranian cultural convention. Some argue that second-generation Iranians will soon become structurally acculturated and assimilated within American society." (Ch. 1)
"Unlike other immigrants, the post-revolutionary Iranians have brought money to invest. They have the highest per-capita income of all ethnic groups in the United States." (Ch. 1)
"I have noticed that when many Iranians ... move to the United States, they gradually stop praying and wearing their headscarves. Furthermore, it seems as if Iranian-Americans who say they are religious do not emphasize everyday prayer and Islamic rituals as much as Iranians do. Assimilation into the new American culture and attempting to fit in might have a lot to do with this phenomenon." (Ch. 7)
"I have categorized myself with the White population, which is a majority in the United States. My skin is not white, it is olive, and I am not in America's racial majority. I consider myself a minority, but according to the U.S. government, my race is not legally classified as such; my race cannot take advantage of affirmative action of even something as trivial as applying for a scholarship aimed at minorities." (Ch. 11)
"Despite Americans' perspective that Iranians are religious and political extremists, the Iranian identity is much more influenced by the history of the Iranian Plateau than by religious or political ideology." (Ch. 12)
