Reviews/Comments:
Aung San Suu Kyi, human-rights activist and leader of Burma's National League for Democracy, was detained in 1989 by SLORC, the ruling military junta. This collection of writings reflects Aung San Suu Kyi's greatest hopes and fears for her people and her concern about the need for international cooperation, and gives poignant and humorous reminiscences as well as independent assessments of her role in politics. Containing speeches, letters and interviews, these writings give a voice to Burma's 'woman of destiny', who was awarded the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought and the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize.
