Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Human-rights activist and leader of Burma's National League for Democracy, Aung San Suu Kyi was sentenced to six years' house arrest in Rangoon in 1989 by the ruling military junta SLORC. She paints a vivid, poignant yet optimistic picture of her native land in this collection of writings from her imprisonment. Aung San Suu Kyi won the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize and the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought.

Synopsis:

A collection of fifty-two pieces by Burmese human rights and democracy leader Aung San Sui Kyi taken from her weekly Japanese newspaper column. Illustrated by Burmese artists, the pieces describe the political, cultural and social scene in Burma today and include overt political pieces on the repression in the country.

Synopsis:

For the last decade of Burma's traumatic history, Aung San Suu Kyi-winner of the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize-has been the inspirational leader of attempts to restore democracy to her country. In these fifty-two pieces, originally written for a Japanese newspaper and begun soon after her release from house arrest, she paints a vivid, poignant yet fundamentally optimistic picture of her native land.
