What happens to children when they are raised outside their parents' home country?
In "The Third Culture Kid Experience" David Pollock and Ruth Van Reken explore systematically and compassionately 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 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.
