Amy Chua appears at the 2011 National Book Festival.
Speaker Biography: "Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother" has created a sensation with its depiction of the strict, traditional child-rearing of the author's children. Amy Chua's two daughters were never allowed to watch television or play computer games, be in a school play, have a play date, get any grade less than an A or attend a sleepover. Chua is the John M. Duff Professor of Law at Yale. Her first book, "World on Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability," was a New York Times best-seller. Her second book, also a best-seller, is the critically acclaimed "Day of Empire: How Hyperpowers Rise to Global Dominance -- and Why They Fall."
