Product description

In this comprehensive work, David Pollock and Ruth Van Reken explore the experiences of those who have become known as "third culture kids" (TCKs) - children who grow up or spend a significant part of their childhood living abroad. Rich with real-life anecdotes, the book fully examines the nature of the TCK experience and its effect on maturing, developing a sense of identity, and adjusting to one's "passport country" upon return. The authors give readers an understanding of the challenges and benefits of the TCK life and provide practical suggestions and advice on maximizing those benefits.
