Third Culture Kids: The Experience of Growing Up Among Worlds: The original, classic book on TCKs (英语) 平装 – 2001年3月22日
Growing up as a TCK has been a gift and has significantly shaped my life and work. As I interact with world leaders one day and with those living in refugee camps the next, I continually draw upon my experience of living among different cultures. I am delighted to see the lessons learned from the traditional TCK experience live on in this new edition of 'Third Culture Kids'.
As an adult TCK, I have long wrestled with how I fit into this world. This book is the 'bible' for anyone who wants to understand the blessings and the curses of growing up multiculturally.
I called the first edition of Third Culture Kids 'absolutely brilliant'. This revised edition continues to earn that acclaim. It's a powerhouse of a book through which readers growing up 'among worlds'--and their parents and the professionals responsible for their care and teaching--become able to take leadership of the challenges and opportunities presented by such a rick and complex childhood.
Because Third Culture Kids have been exposed to other cultures in significant ways and have experienced multiple transitions while growing up, it's in their DNA to thrive within the pace and nature of globalization. This book is a must to understand the challenges TCKs face and the unique skills they can leverage as global leaders.
David C. Pollock worked with TCKs and adult TCKs for more than twenty years and logged thousands of miles conducting seminars and conferences for TCKs, their parents, and sponsoring organizations.

The focus is on children of diplomats, missionaries, oil workers and military children, but the book has application for anyone who has spent enough time in another country to adapt some foreign ways. It isn't just children, it is the broadening experience of having your cultural identity challenged, recognizing new ways of dealing with problems, coming to the understanding that none of us has it entirely right, and that we can all learn from one another.
I have bought this book multiple times. I keep giving it away to people who love it. There is a whole world out there of young people growing up with a larger view, due to their more international upbringing. Much of their life, they feel alien. They learn different coping mechanisms - and they become very good at recognizing one another.
