In a world where national boundaries have become permeable through the opportunities for international careers and personal travel, a new breed of individual has emerged who both reflects this change and promises to be the key player in the next stages of globalization. This is the 'Global Cosmopolitan', a featured actor in this emerging drama who has lived in different countries, learnt to speak multiple languages and acquired an ease of moving to new situations. However, being a Global Cosmopolitan can also result in increasingly complex issues of personal identity. New and complicated questions such as 'Who am I?' and 'Where is my home?' are hidden under more easily discussed topics such as languages spoken, countries visited and passports obtained. This exciting new book by Linda Brimm affords a unique view into the world and experience of Global Cosmopolitans. On the basis of on her extensive work as a teacher and psychologist working with these individuals, she has combined their fascinating stories, told in their own voices, with a variety of useful concepts for understanding their unique experience. The frameworks and exercises contained in the book are also a useful approach for anyone experiencing the excitement and anxieties of change in life conditions and personal identity
"As globalization creates the need for leaders who transcend national borders, this book provides an insider's view of what makes them special. This is the first book to present a framework for understanding this fast-growing and influential group and it provides tools for readers to discover their own inner competitive edge"-- Provided by publisher
