Description

Studying in a foreign country--especially at a young
age--can change one s outlook and personal value
system. Although becoming bi-cultural or
multi-cultural may have certain advantages, being
caught between two or more worlds with differing
values can also be rather troubling. Who am I? is
something we all ask ourselves, but this question may
resonate more loudly for young international students
who find themselves rethinking the values they were
raised with and the contrary values to which they are
introduced. In this book, the author explores how
Japanese undergraduates perceive differences in
Japanese and American values and how they perceive
themselves in the midst of these often opposing
influences. This book is poignant for international
students and professionals and for all those who work
with and find reason to understand the increasing
number of people around them who are the
product of two or more cultural influences.
