Overview

A Global Citizen is the second installment of the autobiography by Niels Aage Skov. It will be welcomed by the many who have clamored for "the rest of the story" after reading Letter to My Descendants, a memoir of his life in Denmark and his work as a saboteur and anti-Nazi freedom fighter during WWII. A Global Citizen relates the author's life and times from his arrival in the United States in 1947. With humor and tolerance, he tells about the obstacles and opportunities an immigrant encounters in the process of assimilation. The vivid narrative lets Americans see themselves through the eyes of a perceptive newcomer, and it proceeds to look at the world scene through an American prism, but with an insight sharpened by both linguistic facility and local familiarity.
