Ayaan talks with Amy Chua about how America has always demonstrated a poor understanding of tribal relations in other cultures, a weakness that makes the country ill-prepared to navigate the increasing tribalism of its own domestic politics. Amy shares her work on ‘market dominant minorities’ and ‘super-groups,’ as both women express concern about the growing political “us vs them” mentality in the United States.
Amy Chua is a Professor of Law at Yale Law School. She received both her A.B. and her J.D. from Harvard University and was Executive Editor of the Harvard Law Review.
After practicing on Wall Street, she joined the Yale Law faculty in 2001. She is the bestselling author of numerous books, including World on Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability, The Triple Package (coauthored with Jed Rubenfeld), and her 2011 memoir Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, a runaway international bestseller that has been translated into 30 languages. Her latest book is Political Tribes: Group Instinct and the Fate of Nations.
In 2011, she was named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world, one of the Atlantic Monthly’s Brave Thinkers, and one of Foreign Policy’s Global Thinkers. She also received the Yale Law School’s “Best Teaching” award.
