A Broad Abroad is a book about leaving behind everyone (and everything) you know and learning how to live in someone else's country. During her junior year abroad (JYA) in Canterbury, Kent in the mid 1980s, Diane Giombetti Clue survived British cooking and social customs, grew a lot more curious, and learned to be far less critical. In the process, she fell in love with an entire nation. Funny, honest, and practical, A Broad Abroad is part memoir and part how-to guide. The book is packed with helpful advice and tips for students who want to make the most of their JYA. A Broad Abroad is an invaluable tool for students and a wonderfully nostalgic story for people who've already taken the JYA journey (with or without big hair and shoulder pads).

This non-fiction book describes thirty-two years that the American author and her husband spent living and working in international schools in Iran, Japan, Cote D'Ivoire, and England. Along the way they raised three children, all of whom only knew the USA as a summer vacation venue until each chose to attend a US university following high school graduation overseas. The author's experiences range from humorous to tragic, dangerous to joyful, and dramatic to unbelievable. Relevant historical information connects their experiences to political and social issues defining the various countries in which they lived and worked. The family's adjustment to each new country's specific cultural aspects are discussed pragmatically as well as anecdotally. The author includes elements of her personal life not associated with her life abroad, but none the less a vital part of her complete story.

It's July,1977; a year before the bloody start of the revolution, and two years before the U.S. Embassy take-over, when Dodie Cross finds herself in a strange world, somewhere between the Old Testament and the Space Age. Her life takes on twists and turns as she tries to acclimate to the soaring changes in temperature and altitude, culture and attitude. She suffers indignities as she's pinched on the bum at the bazaar, grabbed on the breast by a motorcycle passenger-who doesn't let go for a block-as she crosses the street with her arms weighted down with groceries; chased and rocked by angry country dwellers as she rafts down a whitewater river, and comes across the stoning of an adulterous woman in a place she should never have been: the bowels of the bazaar. In 1978 she takes a job as secretary to the head of Security at Bell Helicopter International. She soon learns of the civil unrest going on in the capital as thousands of fist-waving radicals gather in the streets and scream for the removal of the U.S. puppet, Shah Reza Pahlavi and his evil Western ways. She now has second thoughts about staying in Iran. As the riots escalate in her small town, and marshal law brings in tanks, she knows it's time to leave. Her wake-up call is a Polaroid picture that comes across her desk showing a fire-bombed bus with bodies lying about-the same type of bus that transports her children to school every day. She tries to convince her husband's company friends of what's to come, but they laugh at her paranoia, while the company offers the men a ten thousand dollar bonus to sign on for another year. She handles most things thrown her way, but as the revolution becomes a reality, and her children are in danger, she gives her husband an ultimatum: "Stay here, or leave with us. Either way, we're gone."
