Book Description

Freedom from Fear - collected writings from the Nobel Peace prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi

Aung San Suu Kyi's collected writings - edited by her late husband, whom the ruling military junta prevented from visiting Burma as he was dying of cancer - reflects her greatest hopes and fears for her fellow Burmese people, and her concern about the need for international co-operation in the continuing fight for Burma's freedom. Bringing together her most powerful speeches, letters and interviews, this remarkable collection gives a voice to Burma's 'woman of destiny', whose fate remains in the hands of her enemies.

Recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought, and leader of Burma's National League for Democracy, Aung San Suu Kyi is one of the world's greatest living defenders of freedom and democracy, and an inspiration to millions worldwide. This book sits alongside Nelson Mandela's memoir Long Walk to Freedom.

'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

Aung San Suu Kyi is the leader of Burma's National League for Democracy. She was placed under house arrest in Rangoon in 1989, where she remained for almost 15 of the 21 years until her release in 2010, becoming one of the world's most prominent political prisoners. She is also the author of Letters from Burma.

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.
