Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview of the beginnings and the development of Arabic and bilingual newspapers and magazines in the states with which the author is concerned. Brazil was by far the greatest producer of Arabic newspapers and magazines in Latin America. This, of course, was primarily related to the numerical strength of the Arab element in the country. Argentina proved to be the second hotspot for the publication of Arabic and bilingual newspapers and magazines in Latin America. Although the emergence of Arabic and bilingual publishing in Mexico took until the twentieth century, chronologically the country was not far behind Brazil and Argentina in that respect. In Chile an Arab press emerged almost a decade later than in the Mexican case. In Uruguay a local Arab press developed only on a very modest scale. Nevertheless, it was the fourth Latin American country to have an Arabic newspaper.
