Professors Amy Chua and Jed Rubenfeld (Yale Law School) address the question of why do some ethnic groups rise? Drawing on groundbreaking original research, Chua and Rubenfeld uncover the secret to success.


Amy Chua, John M. Duff, Jr. Professor of Law, Yale Law School; Author, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother; Co-author, The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in America 

Jed Rubenfeld, Robert R. Slaughter Professor of Law, Yale Law School; Co-author, The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in America
  
Why do some ethnic groups rise? Drawing on groundbreaking original research, Chua and Rubenfeld uncover the secret to success. A superiority complex, insecurity, impulse control — these are the elements of what the authors call the Triple Package, the rare and potent cultural constellation that they believe drives disproportionate group success. The Triple Package is open to anyone, they say; the U.S. itself was once a Triple Package culture. But it’s been losing that edge for a long time. Even as headlines proclaim the death of upward mobility in America, the truth is that the old-fashioned American Dream is very much alive, say Chua and Rubenfeld — but some groups have a cultural edge, which enables them to take advantage of opportunity better than others. Provocative and profound, Chua and Rubenfeld will transform the way we think about success and achievement.
