World on fire : how exporting free market democracy breeds ethnic hatred and global instability by Amy Chua( Book )

44 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in English and Chinese and held by 2,288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Examining the actual impact of economic globalization in every region of the world, from Africa and Asia to Russia and Latin America, Chua exposes an unexpected reality. In every one of these regions, free markets have concentrated disproportionate, often spectacular wealth in the hands of a resented ethnic minority." "Adding democracy to this volatile mix unleashes suppressed ethnic hatreds and brings to power ethno nationalist governments that pursue aggressive policies of confiscation and revenge. Chua also shows how individual countries may be viewed as market-dominant minorities at the regional or global level, a fact that may help to explain the Arab-Israeli conflict and the rising tide of anti-American sentiment around the world. America today has become the world's leading market-dominant minority, enjoying wealth and economic power wildly disproportionate to our numbers. This, perhaps more than anything else, accounts for the visceral hatred of Americans that we have seen expressed in recent acts of terrorism." "Chua warns that, far from making the world a better and safer place, democracy and capitalism - at least in the raw, unrestrained form in which they are currently being exported - are intensifying ethnic resentment and global violence, with potentially catastrophic results."--Jacket
The triple package : how three unlikely traits explain the rise and fall of cultural groups in America by Amy Chua( Book )

21 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,767 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"--
Day of empire : how hyperpowers rise to global dominance--and why they fall by Amy Chua( Book )

25 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historians have long debated the rise and fall of empires. To date, however, no one has studied the far rarer phenomenon of hyperpowers--those few societies that amassed such extraordinary military and economic might that they essentially dominated the world. Here, globalization expert Chua explains how hyperpowers rise and why they fall. She examines history's hyperpowers--Persia, Rome, Tang China, the Mongols, the Dutch, the British, and the United States--and reveals the reasons behind their success, as well as the roots of their ultimate demise. For all their differences, she argues, every one of these world-dominant powers was, at least by the standards of its time, extraordinarily pluralistic and tolerant, succeeding by harnessing the skills and energies of individuals from very different backgrounds. But Chua also uncovers a great historical irony: in virtually every instance, multicultural tolerance eventually sowed the seeds of decline, and diversity became a liability.--From publisher description
Political tribes : group instinct and the fate of nations by Amy Chua( Book )

21 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 1,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the failure of America's political elites to recognize how group identities drive politics both at home and abroad, and outlines recommendations for reversing the country's foreign policy failures and overcoming destructive political tribalism at home
Battle hymn of the tiger mother by Amy Chua( Book )

69 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in 19 languages and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amy Chua's daughters, Sophia and Louisa (Lulu) were polite, interesting and helpful; they had perfect school marks and exceptional abilities. The Chinese parenting model certainly seemed to produce results. But what happens when a screaming child, who would sooner freeze outside in the cold than be forced to play the piano, confronts you? BATTLE HYMN OF THE TIGER MOTHER is a story about a mother, two daughters, and two dogs. It was supposed to be a story of how Chinese parents are better at raising kids than Western ones. But instead, it's about a clash of cultures, a fleeting taste of glory, and how you can be humbled by a thirteen-year-old
Political tribes : group instinct and the fate of nations by Amy Chua( Recording )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amy Chua argues that America must rediscover a national identity that transcends our political tribes, a challenging unity that acknowledges group differences and fights the deep inequities that divide us
Civil rights in wartime : the post-9/11 Sikh experience by Dawinder S Sidhu( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book shares accounts of public and private discrimination involving turbaned Sikhs in America since September 11, 2001, investigates the American legal remedies available to those affected by discriminatory conduct, and compares these remedies to those in other Western societies. It offers a sharp analysis of the legal battles fought by Sikhs in post-9/11 America, and by extension the difficulties many minority groups have faced in protecting their civil liberties in times of war
The triple package : [how three unlikely traits explain the rise and fall of cultural groups in America] by Amy Chua( Recording )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

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

4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Korean and held by 15 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. Indian and Chinese Americans have much higher incomes than other Americans; Jews may have the highest of all. Why do some groups rise?

The Triple Package. How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultu : Die verblüffenden kulturellen Ursachen von Erfolg by Ulrike Bischoff( )

1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warum sind Einwanderer aus China und dem Iran Gewinnertypen und die aus anderen Nationen oft nicht?" Tigermutter"Amy Chua und ihr Mann Jed Rubenfeld haben eine überraschende Antwort. Erfolg hat, wer drei Dinge mit auf den Weg bekommt: das Gefühl kollektiver Überlegenheit, gepaart mit einer tiefen Unsicherheit gegenüber der neuen Gesellschaft und nicht zuletzt einer guten Portion Selbstdisziplin. Das Gute: Das Erfolgsprinzip ist kulturell geprägt, aber dennoch übertragbar und kann uns auch hierzulande eine Lehre sein. Vorausgesetzt, wir haben den nötigen Biss!
