An expert in the study of ethnic conflict, globalization, international business, and law, Chua has been named as a Brave Thinker by The Atlantic, and among Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people.

She is perhaps best known for her book, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, in which she details her strict parenting style, intended to foster high achieving children. The book was an international bestseller. She was also very critically acclaimed for her first book, World on Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability, which was named one of the best books of the year by The Economist and The Guardian. The book explores the correlations between inequities in economics and politics and ethnic conflict.

Chua was briefly scrutinized for her role in stipulating appearance requirements for young women clerking for now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, though she has now returned to teaching full-time.
