Dr. Aras Demir faced many challenges developing his own self-identity during his year as a Turkish exchange student in the United States. Demir, like many migrants, felt deep emotional struggles with his dual nationalism. Demir eventually realized that he did not need to choose between being Turkish or an American: he could be both. Those experiences guided Demir during his international work in paediatrics and adolescent medicine. In 1992, Demir launched Turkey's Newborn Resuscitation Program.

Texte du rabat

With the rapid increase of globalization, international communities have become increasingly interdependent. At a time when the world is shrinking and we become increasingly interdependent, it is critical to understand the cultural, political and religious similarities and differences that we all share.

In Sidetracks, Dr. Aras Demir combines his historic research with his true experiences as a high school exchange student living in a Midwestern town, to expose the thoughts and questions of a teenager attempting to understand the ties that bind us - the shared human experience.

"This is a book that should be 'required reading' for all students of world history."
- Svea Fraser MDiv...
