The Absentee American: Repatriates' Perspectives on America and Its Place in the Contemporary World

Synopsis

During the 1950s and 1960s increasing numbers of American citizens were stationed in foreign countries, and a whole generation of American children grew up abroad. As the interdependence of nations increases, new generations of "Absentee Americans" will be raised outside the United States. This unique volume describes the long-term impact of overseas living on Americans who spent some of their formative years in countries other than the United States. Smith concludes that these "global nomads" tend to share a distinctive set of opinions and attitudes regarding the United States and its relations with other nations.
