Reviews

"This book will become a bible to anyone who truly wants to look inside the mind of the Third Culture Kid (TCK), the Military Brat, or the Missionary Kid. [...] Anyone writing about TCK issues needs this book; it's an invaluable reference." - Jo Parfitt, 'Global Living Magazine', 3 (October/November 2012), p. 56."Personal and heartfelt, the pieces shed light on the bittersweetness of an international childhood." - The Foriegn Service Journal (November 2012) p. 47."This terrific and substantial volume is a vital step in clarifying the experiences, gifts, and struggles of those who grew up around the world, or with those who grew up elsewhere. I can't wait to teach with it." - Wendy Laura Belcher, PhD, Professor of Literature, Princeton University."Well-grounded in classical perspectives and new visions of what it means to live in an intercultural world, the book offers a wonderful array of memoir, research, interviews, theory and even poetry. There's something for everyone here!" - Anne P. Copeland, PhD, Director, The Interchange Institute."The selections here, varied as they are, share the quiet, profound, and rich experiences of people writing on the most innocent years, transcendent of cultural boundaries. Reading this book is a travel across the globe with an impressive group of worldly citizens." - Morten Ender, PhD, Professor of Sociology, United States Military Academy at West Point."I recommend this book to all parents who are creating TCKs; to teachers and professors of TCKs; for general reading and understanding of the making of a citizen of the world; and, finally, to TCKs themselves, who will see that their experiences are shared with many others." - Linda A. Garvelink, President, Foreign Service Youth Foundation."This book is an essential contribution to the discussion of migration and the art of finding a home between borders. In vivid prose, the authors reveal the value of cultural negotiation and the complexity of identities formed on the margins." - Neela Vaswani, PhD, Author of You Have Given Me a Country.
