The Triple Package: How Three Unlikely Traits Explain the Rise and Fall of Cultural Groups in AmericaAmy Chua and Jed Rubenfeld In The Triple Package, co-authors, fellow professors at Yale Law School, and married couple Amy Chua and Jed Rubenfeld use startling statistics and pioneering research to examine the traits and factors that lead to success. Chua authored the bestselling World on Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability and Day of Empire: How Hyperpowers Rise to Global Dominance, “provocative, evocative, nuanced, and highly readable” (Washington Post) examinations of globalization, culture, and the tensions in multicultural societies. Her contentiously popular 2011 memoir also helped popularize the term “tiger mother.” Rubenfeld has written two books about Constitutional law, as well as two thrillers, including 2006’s The Interpretation of Murder, “a gloriously intelligent exploration of what might have happened to Sigmund Freud during his only visit to America” (Library Journal).
