The International Man.
Harvey, John F.
In order to explain the international and comparative study fields with enough detail to command reader appreciation for the one world philosophy which they represent, it is necessary, with information taken from several occupational fields, to describe the new breed, the International Man. This man works and prospers because international trade and finance, science, education and government are expanding rapidly in many countries. He is the product of both a general increase in awareness of other countries' importance and of developing countries' growing awareness of their need for outside assistance. Their need is basic--the International Man's knowledge and ability are scarce locally, perhaps even non-existent. There is considerable literature on the business executive as International Man but very little on the government or service field executive or advisor in this role, and very little material on the International Man as a person. This paper will attempt to describe the character and personalities of the modern International Men observed in a dozen Asian and African countries. It is part of the international and comparative library science discussion, and some of the men and women described are librarians.
