Coleman Hughes on The Tribal Instinct with Amy Chua

A great discussion between two genuinely serious thinkers.

My guest today is Amy Chua. Amy is a professor at Yale Law School. Her books include ‘World on Fire’, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother’, ‘The Triple Package’, and ‘Political Tribes’. She made Time Magazine’s list of 100 most influential people in 2011 and has been a guest on many TV shows including Good Morning America, the Today Show, and Real Time with Bill Maher. Amy and I talk about tribalism, highly successful minority groups, and how ethnic tensions have undermined the US foreign policy. We also talk about the sources of racial and ethnic disparity, color blindness, and much more.
