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) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Aung San Suu Kyi is the leader of the struggle for human rights and democracy in Burma. In 1990 she was awarded the Thorolf Rafto Prize for Human Rights in Norway and the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought by the European Parliament and in 1991 she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. She is also the author of several books, including FREEDOM FROM FEAR, which was edited by her husband, Dr Michael Aris and THE VOICE OF HOPE, both published in Penguin. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

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.

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.

A very tedious read, great if you are into Burmese philosophy and military history. It was interesting, however, in that it made us (book club members) review our perceptions of The Lady. The common wisdom is that she is an infallible, heroic figure, but her book made us question who she really is, and her motivations. I still admire her, but question how she was able to throw away her entire family life with her husband and two young children to set herself up as the only possible leader of a country she had barely lived in, all in pursuit of what seems like an obsession with her father’s legacy.

A truly courageous, intelligent, inspiring woman fighting (although fighting peacefully) against a brutal military regime which I, like many westerners, find it hard to believe that such things can still occur. The military regime in Burma is brutal, there is no freedom for the people. Although the situation is changing, this is a must read for anyone wishing to understand more about the situation in Burma. And anyone wishing to read about the true spirit of human beings who have survived and continue to bring about positive change for their people.
