Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) June 8, 2004
With the recovering economy and the continued easing of international travel restrictions amidst the backdrop of the terrorist havoc of September 11, 2001, many Americans have resumed traveling abroad. Unfortunately, while many of them are making their travel plans, they neglect to anticipate the very real problems they can encounter here in the U.S. as well as abroad.
Traveling Abroad Post "9-11" and in the Wake of Terrorism: A Practical Guide for Americans & Other International Travelers by Gladson I. Nwanna takes the guesswork out of preparing and traveling abroad during these uncertain times by providing and addressing a broad range of issues on foreign travel post 9-11. Both the business traveler and tourist will benefit from the information and advice Dr. Nwanna provides in this book.
Traveling Abroad Post "9-11"... addresses such diverse concerns as safety, health, money, shopping and driving. The author also addresses matters of etiquette, law and order, common sense, good judgment and good habits.
Readers of the book will find not only information about security awareness, overseas, but also how they can get help from the U.S. Department of State should they be stranded or handicapped by a disaster while abroad. The book also includes important post 9-11 packing tips for those traveling by air and new airport security screening procedures and guidelines established by the Department of Homeland Security.
Information contained in Traveling Abroad Post "9-11"... should be useful to all categories of international travelers, but more so for those who have not traveled abroad since the "9-11" incident or those traveling abroad for the first time.
Very prominent throughout this book is Dr. Nwanna's ability to draw on his vast first hand experiences with specific emphasis and cautions on a myriad of potentially costly issues often taken for granted by many travelers to foreign countries. Topics covered include how not to flirt and fraternize with foreign law enforcement officials and preventing abductions, as well as treats and tricks of foreign con artists.
Besides the hundreds of tips and advice given by the author, Traveling Abroad Post "9-11"... contains 14 appendices, references and resources that overseas travelers can consult.

Nwanna, Ph.D., is also the author of the bestseller international travel book "Americans Traveling Abroad: What You Should Know Before You Go"; "Americans Living Abroad: What You Should Know While You are There," "American Businesses Abroad: How to Protect Your Assets and Personnel," and the regional book series "Do's and Don'ts Around the World: A Country Guide to Cultural and Social Taboos and Etiquette."
