This collection of essays by participants in the Fulbright Educational Exchange program provides convincing evidence that the transnational educational experience is an efficient and effective way to change the attitudes of people toward others with different customs, religion, and political systems. The book conveys the variegated flavor of the Fulbright experience and the effects of studying, teaching, and undertaking research in other countries. The authors present a set of remarkable testimonials of personal growth and career restructuring. Richard Arndt, Robin Winks, Peter I. Rose, Otto N. Larsen, Ray Marshall, Irving Louis Horowitz, and more than forty others present revealing insights. We learn first hand of culture shock, of developing understanding across cultural boundaries, of teaching and learning about disciplinary assumptions, and of breaking intellectual ground. The book is a fascinating account of a successful program that tightens the bonds of affection and understanding between peoples of differing cultures.Encounters and Transformations Arthur Power Dudden, Russell Rowe Dynes ...
