Publisher Comments:

Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Prize Laureate, mother of two, and devout Buddhist, is one of the most inspiring examples of spiritually infused politics and fearless leadership that the world has ever seen. Daughter of the martyred Burmese national hero who negotiated Burma's independence from Britain in the 1940s, Aung San Suu Kyi led the pro-democracy movement in Burma in 1988. The movement was quickly and brutally crushed by the military junta, and Aung San Suu Kyi was placed under house arrest.

The Voice of Hope is a rare and intimate journey to the heart of her struggle. Over a period of nine months, Alan Clements, the first American ordained as a Buddhist monk in Burma, met with Aung San Suu Kyi shortly after her release from her first house arrest in July 1995. With her trademark ability to speak directly and compellingly, she presents here her vision of engaged compassion and describes how she has managed to sustain her hope and optimism.

Book News Annotation:

Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi is the Burmese leader of the National League For Democracy and is widely seen as the leading opponent of the military junta currently governing Burma (Myanmar). This volume reproduces transcripts of conversations conducted Between Suu Kyi and Clements, an American ordained as a Buddhist monk in Burma, in which she discusses her life and her political and spiritual philosophy. The volume also includes interviews with fellow National League for Democracy leaders U Tin U and U Kyi Maung and, new to this edition, an interview with U Gambira, a now-detained leader of the All-Burma Monks Alliance, which was involved in organizing the major protests of late 2007.

I look at the end of tunnel in the non violent struggle in burma, tibet, Palestine.. i believe that Aung aspirations in book relevation similar to those that have made local women and children in kenya to be strong during the post elections crisis 2007. i find the book a must for peace work... it is powerful
