Perfect Hostage

by Justin Wintle
£8.99   paperback  Arrow Books (2008)

Perfect Hostage by Justin Wintle Like Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela, Aung San Suu Kyi is an iconic figure, and the best-known prisoner of conscience alive today.
 
Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, at great personal cost she has steadfastly opposed Burma’s brutal military regime since 1988, when she emerged as the leader of the Burmese democracy movement. As well as house arrest she has endured every kind of intimidation, including an attempt on her life in 2003.
 
Yet if her exemplary fortitude has earned Aung San Suu Kyi world-wide admiration, inside Burma itself little has changed – as Justin Wintle’s comprehensive biography makes hideously plain.
