    Humans are tribal. We need to belong to groups. In many parts of the world, the group identities that matter most - the ones that people will kill and die for - are ethnic, religious, sectarian, or clan-based. But because America tends to see the world in terms of nation-states engaged in great ideological battles - capitalism vs. communism, democracy vs. authoritarianism, the "free world" vs. the "axis of evil" - we are often spectacularly blind to the power of tribal politics. Time and again this blindness has undermined American foreign policy.

    All decent parents want to do what's best for their children. What Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother reveals is that the Chinese just have a totally different idea of how to do that. Western parents try to respect their children's individuality, encouraging them to pursue their true passions and providing a nurturing environment. The Chinese believe that the best way to protect your children is by preparing them for the future and arming them with skills, strong work habits, and inner confidence.

Cubans in Miami climbed from poverty to prosperity in a generation. Nigerians earn doctorates at stunningly high rates.

Drawing on groundbreaking original research and startling statistics, The Triple Package uncovers the secret to their success.

    "A lot of people wonder how Chinese parents raise such stereotypically successful kids. They wonder what Chinese parents do to produce so many math whizzes and music prodigies, what it’s like inside the family, and whether they could do it too. Well, I can tell them, because I’ve done it…."

    From the author of the international best seller Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, a bracing and original look at the tension between our democratic egalitarian political ideals and our recalcitrant biology. Human beings are tribal. We possess a fundamental desire to belong to groups, teams, clubs, a tribe - something larger than ourselves. Political Tribes explores the phenomenon of human groupishness: how identities are shaped and formed by belonging to a group.

    Hart, streng, erbarmungslos. So wirkt es, wenn die erfolgreiche Anwältin Amy Chua von der Erziehung ihrer Töchter Sophia und Louisa erzählt - denn die chinesischstämmige Amerikanerin ordnet das Leben ihrer Kinder nach dem Leistungsprinzip. Die Mädchen dürfen nicht bei Freunden übernachten, fernsehen oder selbst gewählten Hobbys nachgehen. Bringen sie eine Eins minus mit nach Hause, werden sie gefragt, warum sie so schlecht seien.
