Following World War II, American military, political, corporate, religious, and humanitarian efforts abroad expanded greatly. With families in tow, government officials, military service members, business executives, and missionary workers traveled and lived, in increasing numbers, outside of their home country. Other nations around the world followed as international travel and expatriate communities became normal rather than exceptional. Ender and his associates examine this legacy of the late 20th century and analyze the social, psychological, and historical imprints on the people who came of age in these service organization families both at home and broad.
