Couples from two different cultures experience upheaval. This experience is familiar from the Epic of Gilgamesh and to Erasmus couples who meet while studying abroad. But where do these fears and fantasies come from? Michael Jeismann has written the first cultural history of couples who have united across borders to be together. The fear that a foreign culture could weaken your own identity is at least as great as the desire to enrich your life with new experiences. Michael Jeismann aligns the legendary Queen of Saba and King Solomon with Ruth Khama, the first woman to marry a black African in Great Britain in 1958. The history of intercultural couples repeats itself in ever new variations: many people will identify with the protagonists of this book.
