While overseas Americans are often seen as short-term corporate transferees or backpackers, there are many other Americans – estimates range from 2 to 7 million – living overseas. Migrants or Expatriates? Americans in Europe examines the migration, integration and transnational engagement of Americans living in France, Germany and the United Kingdom. What has led them to leave the United States? How does their integration in Europe proceed? This book explores both of these questions, while also examining the case of overseas American political engagement in the United States. Drawing on almost 900 survey responses and over 100 in-depth interviews carried out with Americans in Berlin, Paris and London, Migrants or Expatriates? challenges assumptions about who overseas Americans are, and, more broadly, who migrants are.
