Professor Chua is currently the John M. Duff Professor of Law at Yale University. She is well known for her book, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, which was excerpted in The Wall Street Journal in 2011. Her earlier book, which she signed for James, argues that "tolerance and multiculturalism are indispensable features of global economic and military success," according to Publishers Weekly.
