Hyphened-Nation was inspired by the authors travels overseas, and time spent living in the United Kingdom. Living abroad was an eye opening experience, she grew to understand certain aspects of American culture better, the longer she lived overseas.
This book is about her insights, and experience of being treated as an American, rather than a hyphenated American. The difference was startling, and lead her on a journey to understand why The United States is one of the only, if not the only country, that hyphenates its citizens by ethnicity before nationality.
This book takes you on her path of discovery that those same boxes we allow ourselves to be placed into as hyphenated-Americans, limit our economic, educational, societal and cultural growth.
