Prof. dr. Amy Chua is the John M. Duff, Jr. Professor of Law at Yale Law School and is an recognized authority on international business transactions, ethnic conflicts, law and development, and globalization and the law. She is requested around the world to deliver lectures on these topics and to advise governments on certain issues. She graduated Magna Cum Laude in economics from Harvard college in 1984 and in 1987 she graduated Cum Laude at the Harvard Law School. She started teaching at the Duke University as an associate professor from 1994 till 1999 and till 2001 as a full professor. In 2003 she published her first book ‘World on Fire: How exporting free market democracy breeds ethnic hatred and global instability’, where she explores the ethnic conflict caused in may societies by disproportionate economic and political influence of "market dominant minorities" and the resulting resentment in the less affluent majority. ‘World on Fire’ made the ‘New York Times’ and ‘Business Week’ bestseller lists and was selected by ‘The Economist’ and ‘The Guardian’ as one of the best books of 2003. Her latest book is ‘Day of Empire: How Hyperpowers Rise to Global Dominance – and Why they Fall’, which was published in 2007. Het latest book is a study of history's great hyperpowers like Persia, Rome, China, the Mongols, the Dutch, the British, and the United States. In her research she traces the reasons for their success and the roots of their ultimate fall, examining why multiculturalism and diversity became a liability as they triggered hatred, intolerance, conflict, and violence as she looks at the state of the American empire.

For over a decade now, the reigning consensus has held that the combination of free markets and democracy would transform the third world and sweep away the ethnic hatred and religious zealotry associated with underdevelopment. In this astute, original, and surprising investigation of the true impact of globalization, Yale Law School professor Amy Chua explains why many developing countries are in fact consumed by ethnic violence after adopting free market democracy. Chua shows how in non-Western countries around the globe, free markets have concentrated starkly disproportionate wealth in the hands of a resented ethnic minority. These "market-dominant minorities" - Chinese in Southeast Asia, Croatians in the former Yugoslavia, whites in Latin America and South Africa, Indians in East Africa, Lebanese in West Africa, Jews in post-communist Russia - become objects of violent hatred. At the same time, democracy empowers the impoverished majority, unleashing ethnic demagoguery, confiscation, and sometimes genocidal revenge. She also argues that the United States has become the world's most visible market-dominant minority, a fact that helps explain the rising tide of anti-Americanism around the world. Chua is a friend of globalization, but she urges us to find ways to spread its benefits and curb its most destructive aspects.
