Inaugural Harvard/Princeton Speaker Series:

Guest Speaker Amy Chua  

The Harvard Radcliffe Club of Philadelphia, in combination with the Yale and Princeton Clubs, are pleased to welcome to Amy Chua (AB '84, JD '87), author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, for a discussion of her latest book, The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in America.

In her new book, The Triple Package, Yale law professor Amy Chua argues that there are three traits shared by successful cultural groups in America: a belief in their superiority, a feeling of insecurity and an ability to control impulses. She supports her thesis using primarily the examples of Jews, Mormons, Iranians, Indians, Lebanese, Nigerians, Cubans and Chinese – cultural groups who they say are among the wealthiest, healthiest and high-achieving of all Americans. While the book has been the subject of some controversy and criticism, it does raise interesting questions about what makes people succeed.

This very special opportunity to hear Amy Chua speak will be the inaugural event in the HYP Speaker Series, a new venture that the three clubs will be initiating in 2015 to promote the intellectual community in Philadelphia.
