Look Inside. Jan 06, Pages Buy. Jan 06, Pages. The reigning consensus holds 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 revelatory 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.

It should make Americans think twice about exporting their political culture wholesale without a thought of who dislikes whom. A clear-headed incisive diagnosis of the many ethnic ills of the globalizing era.

Chua is a careful, precise writer. I cannot think of another work over the past couple of decades that reveals more about the disturbing persistence internationally of racial and ethnic conflicts.

Professor Chua's hypothesis, that the sudden introduction of free market liberalization and democracy often serve contradictory ends and have unintended consequences is thought-provoking, well researched and cogently expressed. At times however, the book seems less like a scholarly examination than a polemic endlessly repeated and the solutions offered are so general that they lose potency.

Despite these caveats, this is book well worth reading, as it presents a context within which to consider more specific development plans and longer-term intercession efforts. Hardcover Verified Purchase. World on Fire is an in-depth look at the harm of globalization, marketization, and democratization of developing nations with a market dominant minority.

Yes, there are some boring parts but I think Amy Chua does a superb job of presenting sufficient data and examples to elucidate her point. Political Tribes. I loved that book so much I wanted to purchase other Chua works. Like a good lawyer Chua brings a preponderance of evidence to support her postulations. It makes the book dense to be sure but it leaves little room for a varying or opposing opinion.

The data along with the anecdotal evidence paint a grim picture yet also offers a viable explanation for the awfully violent eruptions around the globe.

The moving of the economy to a free-market type economy. Think capitalism. Offering universal suffrage allowing all citizens to vote for their leaders. Market-dominant minorities: Usually ethnic minorities in a nation who dominate the economy such as Chinese in South Asia, Indians in east Africa, Lebanese in west Africa, whites in South Africa, whites in Latin America and other examples. When all of these ingredients are mixed together they create a very combustible concoction that often times results in an explosion of ethnic resentment or worse.

The globalization and marketization create the enormous disparities in wealth between the foreign market-dominant minorities haves and the indigenous majority have-nots.

Then the advent of a democracy gives power to that abject majority.

Add a demagogue to stoke the fears and anger of that majority and BOOM! As Amy puts it: The book is replete with reports from around the globe dealing with the outcries of a poor majority. It is a very thorough, complete work that at the very least gives pause. Anyone and everyone who has enough money to buy this book should read it.

This is because anyone who reads and orders books online is, whether they recognize it or not, an "Ethnic Dominant Minority" and thus a key subject of this book. If you are from the U. At the end of the book there are examples of what has been done to help alleviate this problem. It is not a simple problem and the solution isn't simple. But like story of the boy throwing saving one starfish by tossing it back into the sea, every time we act to improve the lifes of those who are not in our social circle we can say, "It matters to this one.

Paperback Verified Purchase. Amy Chua tackles tough topics typically avoided at cocktail parties such as Why do American's love to mythologize the 'worldwide Jewish banking cartel'? Why are 6 out of the 7 richest new Russian oligarchs Jewish?

Are Chinese students smarter than American students? Will the Chinese similarly out-compete Americans at jobs?

Why do African-American families not stand a chance competing with white families on a 'fair and level playing field' in building generational wealth? Why did Hindii nationalists massacre between 1, and 2, Muslim civilians in Gujarat province in India in ? Why did the worlds' largest democracy then elevate the leader of Gujarat province to Prime Minister of India in ?

Chua answers all of these questions with fast-moving, clear prose. She adds lurid storytelling, some of it personal, to flesh-out why America's greatest export - democracy - is causing us all to live in a world on fire.
