Product Description

Review

This book is bound to become a classic for a new generation of Asians who value democracy even more highly than Westerners do, simply because they are deprived of the basic freedoms that Westerners take for granted (The New York Times)

Aung San Suu Kyi's extraordinary achievement has been to confront the regime peacefully, reasonably and persuasively... [in] one of the most laudable continuing acts of political courage (Financial Times)

Such is the depth of passion and learning that she brings to her writings about national identity and its links with culture and language that she has attracted the admiration of intellectuals around the world (Sunday Times)

4.0 out of 5 stars Freedom from fear 18 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Amazing woman. True courage and a deep love of humanity. Read the book and be amazed at what one person can do. Perhaps we could all ask ourselves what would we do in her situation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable book by a remarkable woman. 3 Jan 2006
Format:Paperback
Aung San Suu Kyi has spent most of the time since her party's landslide election victory in 1990 under house arrest. Yet this remarkable woman refuses to hate or fear the kleptocratic regime that keeps her there. Instead she preaches peaceful revolution and reconcilliation and points to the example of Mahatmar Ghandi.
READ THIS BOOK and pass it on or recommend it so that the world can see and revere the courage, fortitude and above all dignity of the worlds ONLY imprisoned Nobel Peace Prize winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just incredible 26 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback
Aung San Suu Kyi is one of the most inspiring people I have come across and has maintained her integrity through many hardships. This book shows her absolute moral beliefs and also her value as a scholar, interesting for anyone wanting a greater understanding of the nation of Burma and the woman who personnifies opposition to the rule of the dictatorship that suppresses it.

Within a system which denies the existence of basic human rights, fear tends to be the order of the day. Fear of imprisonment, fear of torture, fear of death, fear of losing friends, family, property or means of livelihood, fear of poverty, fear of isolation, fear of failure. &quote;

It is not power that corrupts but fear. Fear of losing power corrupts those who wield it and fear of the scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it. &quote;
