AMY CHUA: Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother
Hosted by Aimee Allison

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 child's individuality, encouraging them to pursue their true passions and providing a nurturing environment. The Chinese believe that the best way to protect children is by preparing them for the future and arming them with skills, strong work habits, and merited inner confidence.

KPFA's excellent Morning Show host (temporarily laid off) Aimee Allison, also a mother,  will introduce Amy Chua, converse with her, and facilitate the question and answer session with the audience.  

"Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother" is the book we've all been waiting for  a candid, provocative, poignant and vicarious journey through the Chinese-American family culture. It will leave you breathless with its bluntness and emotion. Amy Chua is a Tiger Mother, a greatly gifted law professor and, ultimately, an honest, loving woman with a lot to say." Tom Brokaw

Amy Chua is the John M. Duff Professor of Law at Yale Law School.  Her first book, World on Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability  a New York Times bestseller  was selected by both The Economist and The Guardian as one of the Best Books of 2003. Her second book, Day of Empire: How Hyperpowers Rose To Global DominanceAnd Why They Fall was a critically acclaimed Foreign Affairs bestseller. She lives with her husband and two daughters in New Haven, Connecticut.
