In The Third Culture Kid Experience David Pollock and Ruth Van Reken explore systematically and with compassion the experiences of those who have become know as "third culture kids" (TCKs)--children who grow up or spend a significant part of their childhood living abroad. Rich with real-life anecdotes from TCKs, this is one of the first books to fully examine 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. Pollock and Van Reken give readers an understanding of the challenges and benefits of the TCK life and provide practical suggestions and advice on maximizing the benefits.
