New American Expat is, first, a complete and up-to-date guide on how to be a successful American expatriate-how to find foreign jobs and preparing for life as an expatriate; how to move to a new country and adjusting to foreign cultures; how to be successful in a job overseas and how to reintegrate yourself back home at the end of a long foreign assignment.In addition, New American Expat is the first book on this subject to address two timely and important issues facing today's American expatriate:* How to be an American while living and working abroad. This is a controversial topic, given the increasingly critical view of the US held by many throughout the world and the consequent damage to our global image.* How to live and work in foreign countries safely and securely in light of the new dangers and risks facing Americans in the post-9/11 world.
About the Author
William Russell Melton has more than twenty-five years experience specialising in international business, both as an international lawyer and executive manager. During this period, he has lived and worked in seven different countries-the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Singapore, Switzerland and Bahrain-and has served both as International General Counsel for U.S corporations and as the Managing Director for operations based in these countries. His experience includes setting up new operations in more than twenty countries, recruiting and managers distributors and other partners globally, and restructuring and turning around under-performing foreign operations. The companies he has worked for have ranged from small start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, and he thus understands the special issues faced by both small and large businesses in the international business arena.
"The New American Expat offers much more than a narrow look at the post-9/11 expatriate environment. Melton provides an excellent overview of expatriate needs, ideal for someone heading off on his or her first assignment, as well as numerous checklists and resources that would be helpful to even the most seasoned expat." - Tara Nielsen, Director Worlwide Services, GMAC Global Relocation Services; "The New American Expat is more than a survival kit for those embarking on an overseas assignment. It is an alphabet soup of practical information, resources and timely guidance from the author's own experience. You can be sure I will recommend this book to any member contemplating an expatriate experience. "Nelson Joyner, Chairman, Federation of International Trade Associations (FITA); "I sincerely wish that Melton's book had been available to me 25 years ago when I began my offshore odyssey; adjustments would have been much easier and mistakes much less traumatic. "Marc Bradshaw, International Safety and Security Consultant, The Marcus Group Ltd
