Expat Teens Talk is specifically targeted to Expatriate Teenagers and those who work with this unique population. It addresses the needs and different challenges that Expat Teens face throughout their lives (in particular, their adolescent years), and enables them to learn more about and understand that most of what they are going through and what they feel as a result of constant change in their lives is 'normal' and shared by many other Expat Teens worldwide. Expat Teens, worldwide, shared with us their stories, questions, challenges, fears, and experiences. In return for their submissions, we provided them with support, advice, and solutions from the perspective of their fellow Expat Peers, as well as the perspective of other Expat Parents and Expat Professionals, as these are the three groups that Expat Teenagers most want to hear from. It is meant to be a 'dip in, dip out' book, as opposed to feeling like it has to be read from cover to cover. We hope to provide the tools and information that Expat Teens can use to empower themselves and their peers, worldwide.

Emma is only ten years old, but has already moved twice. Now, her parents are telling her the family is moving again. She's furious, sad, nervous, and a little excited, all at the same time. Unsure of how to tackle these conflicting emotions, she turns to B, her faithful teddy bear. While trying to come to terms with the challenges of another move, what Emma really wants is just to 'be at home'. As the journeys of Emma and B unfold, home changes once again, but home also begins to take on a new meaning that Emma can take with her wherever she goes. "In this delightful book you have the solution for how to translate what we, as adults, know about the TCK experience, into language and concepts that children who grow up globally can relate to. This book offers clear strategies for parents, educators, others who work with TCKs, and the TCKs themselves, on practical ways to translate theory into practices to help children navigate the chronic cycles of separation inherent in a TCK's childhood." Ruth E. Van Reken, Co-author, Third Culture Kids: Growing Up Among Worlds, Co-founder, Families in Global Transition, www.FIGT.org "Beautifully written, B at Home: Emma Moves Again is a must for parents, teachers and organizations that support global nomads. Adults who work with families in global transition will find it added to their 'go to shelf'. Tidbits such as ' ... home will never ever be one place. It will be constantly moving. Like the waves, like the beads in the kaleidoscope' has made this one of my favorite books!" Julia Simens, Author, Emotional Resilience and the Expat Child: practical storytelling techniques that will strengthen the global family "This is a book that will help children and their parents (and stuffed animals!) with any transition or move.

Expatriate Identities in Postcolonial Organizations offers a timely and contemporary discussion of the role of organizations in maintaining or challenging structures and cultures based on racism and discrimination. It offers a key exploration of the relations between whiteness, identity and organization in migratory contexts. It delves into the experiences of expatriates in Hong Kong and the ways in which new identities are constructed in the destinations of migration by exploring the renegotiation of white identities and racialized relationships, and the extent to which colonial imaginations still inform contemporary organizations. By drawing on existing theoretical and empirical material on post-colonialism, identity-making, privileged migration, relocation, transnational work and organizations, this volume brings disparate discussions together in a new and accessible way. It will appeal to a range of sociology scholars as well as to those working in the fields of migration, gender studies, and cultural geography.

The evidence is compelling: the overwhelming majority of people returning from a period living or working abroad find returning to their home culture more difficult than adjusting to the foreign culture. Expecting that home will be the way it was when they left, most returnees are shocked to discover that both they and their home have changed. Indeed the differences between what they expect and what they actually find are so striking that the phenomenon of re-entry is known as reverse culture shock.

After carefully planning the move for about 15 minutes businessman, writer, and free market curmudgeon, Hal O'Boyle packed up his wife and two teens and moved to Costa Rica. The previous 30 years in Key West, Florida had left them prepared only for the climate. The idea was to have a one year adventure, learn a new language, expand their horizons, and then return to the comforts of "home" in the USA. That was nearly five years ago. Home is now in the perpetual spring and pura vida of Costa Rica's central valley. Moving to Costa Rica was a whimsical fling with expatriotism that turned into a torrid affair. The lessons learned are many and don't all have to do with learning a new language deep in middle age. O'Boyle shares the pains and joys of moving to a new country and takes us on an eclectic tour of Costa Rican life and culture. He is refreshingly incorrect in his observations of politics and socialist economics, while delighted and charmed by the warmth of the natives and the remarkable freedom available in tiny, leftist Costa Rica. As a recovering Catholic his forays into the public celebration of the country's official religion ring with sympathy and nostalgia. You'll also enjoy his unique take on kids, cops, crooks, real estate, education, firearms, really good tomatoes, the World Cup, and teaching Costa Rican housewives to talk dirty in English without embarrassing yourself. Jump in anywhere for a refreshing look at life in the Switzerland of Central America, tiny, peaceful Costa Rica.
