The triple package : how three unlikely traits explain the rise and fall of cultural groups in America by Amy Chua( Book )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It may be taboo to say, but some groups in America do better than others. Why do some groups rise? Drawing on groundbreaking original research and startling statistics, The Triple Package uncovers the secret to their success. A superiority complex, insecurity, impulse control--these are the elements of the Triple Package, the rare and potent cultural constellation that drives disproportionate group success. Americans are taught that everyone is equal, that no group is superior to another. But remarkably, all of America's most successful groups believe (even if they don't say so aloud) that they're exceptional, chosen, superior in some way. Americans are taught that self-esteem--feeling good about yourself--is the key to a successful life. But in all of America's most successful groups, people tend to feel insecure, inadequate, that they have to prove themselves. But the Triple Package has a dark underside too. Each of its elements carries distinctive pathologies; when taken to an extreme, they can have truly toxic effects. Should people strive for the Triple Package? Should America? Ultimately, the authors conclude that the Triple Package is a ladder that should be climbed and then kicked away, drawing on its power but breaking free from its constraints"--

Revolution by judiciary : the structure of American constitutional law by Jed Rubenfeld( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although constitutional law is supposed to be fixed and enduring, its central narrative in the twentieth century has been one of radical reinterpretation - Brown v. Board of Education, Roe v. Wade, Bush v. Gore. What, if anything, justifies such radical reinterpretation? How does it work doctrinally? What, if anything, structures it or limits it?" "Jed Rubenfeld finds a pattern in American constitutional interpretation that answers these questions convincingly. He posits two different understandings of how constitutional rights would apply or not apply to particular legislation. One is that a right would be violated if certain laws were passed. The other is that a right would not be violated. He calls the former "Application Understandings" and the latter "No-Application Understandings." He finds that constitutional law has almost always adhered to all of the original Application Understandings, but where it has departed from history, as it did in the Brown decision, it has departed from No-Application Understandings. Specifically, the Fourteenth Amendment did not prohibit racial segregation, so Rubenfeld argues that the Supreme Court had no problem reinterpreting the amendment to prohibit it. It was a No-Application Understanding." "This is a powerful argument that challenges current theories of constitutional interpretation from Bork to Dworkin. It rejects simplistic originalism, but restories historicity to constitutional theorizing."--Jacket

10 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Wall Street bombing of September 1920 is the most destruction and deadly terrorist attack ever committed on United States soil. Caught in the blast are war veteran Stratham younger, police detective Jimmy Littlemore, and the beautiful but secretive Colette Rousseau. A mysterious trail of evidence, together with a series of inexplicable attacks on Colette and a secret buried deep in her past, leas the three on a journey from Paris to Prague, from the world's tallest skyscraper to the secret underground vaults of the U.S. Treasury, from the home of Sigmund Freud to Congress in Washington, D.C. to piece together the shocking truth behind the terror on Wall Street

A superiority complex, insecurity, impulse control. These are the elements of the Triple Package, the rare and potent cultural constellation that drives disproportionate group success. America itself was once a Triple Package culture. It's been losing that edge for a long time now. Even as headlines proclaim the death of upward mobility in America, the truth is that the oldfashioned American Dream is very much alive

It may be taboo to say, but some groups in America do better than others. Mormons have recently risen to astonishing business success.

T'ŭrip'ŭl p'aek'iji : sŏnggong ŭi se kaji yujŏnja = The triple package by Amy Chua( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Korean and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"That certain groups do much better in America than others? as measured by income, occupational status, test scores, and so on? is difficult to talk about. In large part this is because the topic feels racially charged. The irony is that the facts actually debunk racial stereotypes. There are black and Hispanic subgroups in the United States far outperforming many white and Asian subgroups. Moreover, there's a demonstrable arc to group success? in immigrant groups, it typically dissipates by the third generation? puncturing the notion of innate group differences and undermining the whole concept of 'model minorities.'" Mormons have recently risen to astonishing business success. Cubans in Miami climbed from poverty to prosperity in a generation. Nigerians earn doctorates at stunningly high rates.
