9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crossing borders and boundaries, countries and cultures, they are the children of the military, diplomatic corps, international business, education and missions communities. They are called Third Culture Kids or Global Nomads, and the many benefits of their lifestyle expanded worldview, multiplicity of languages, tolerance for difference are often mitigated by recurring losses of relationships, of stability, of permanent roots. They are part of an accelerating demographic that is only recently coming into visibility. In this groundbreaking collection, writers from around the world address issues of language acquisition and identity formation, childhood mobility and adaptation, memory and grief, and the artist s struggle to articulate the experience of growing up global. And, woven like a thread through the entire collection, runs the individual s search for belonging and a place called home. This book provides a major leap in understanding what it s like to grow up among worlds. It is invaluable reading for the new global age
