Today, more and more students are choosing to study overseas. Most relish this opportunity to become "student ambassadors" for their country and community, and eagerly anticipate engaging with the people at their chosen destination. In many cases, however, they quickly encounter obstacles. In Coping with Anti-Americanism, Carol Madison Graham shows students how to break out of their comfort zone, thrive in another society, and handle the anti-Americanism they may encounter. This helpful new guide, by a study-abroad program administrator and former overseas student herself, shows how to get the most out of what can be an exciting and rewarding experience.
