Here`s an article from the Wall Street Journal by Amy Chua of Yale Law School on Chinese mothers. She`s from the Chinese economic elite of the Philippines, a "market-dominant minority" to use her term in the book World on Fire,, which I reviewed for here. I must confess that while I was reading the article, I thought it was by the author of The Joy Luck Club . But that is not Amy Chua, but Amy Tan. That`s because the first story I ever read by Amy Tan was Two Kinds in The Atlantic in 1989, which is about what it`s like to have a Chinese mother for a mother. It`s well worth reading.
