Wennersten (emeritus, American studies, U. of Maryland) profiles the characteristics of the American expatriate diaspora. He describes the different populations of expatriates around the world, examining their motivations for leaving the United States and their experiences with living abroad. Individual chapters discuss expatriates who have left for political reasons, African American expatriates, and women expatriates. Chapters are also presented examining expatriate experiences in Asia and in Latin America, as well as in what Wennersten dubs "the expatriate countries:" Canada, Israel, Australia, and New Zealand.
