Summary:
Tanu offers the first ethnographic study of young people who experience high levels of international mobility while growing up, either moving across national borders or by attending international schools with trans-national student bodies. Although these students are often assumed to have an international outlook, this book shows that the processes involved in becoming 'international' are fraught with tension, given the diversity of this population.
