After taking a brief break from books on transnationalism, I just ordered the following two books:

Next Stop, Reloville: Life Inside America's New Rootless Professional Class by New York Times writer Peter Kilborn

Interview with Kilborn on To the Best of Our Knowledge http://www.wpr.org/book/090712a.cfm

Leaving America: The New Expatriate Generation by John Wennersten

We'll see how they go...I also found this US News article updating numbers on American's abroad (4 to 7 million). They keep moving around so they are hard to count! http://www.usnews.com/articles/news/2008/07/28/a-growing-trend-of-leaving-america.htm
