Freedom From Fear

by Aung San Suu Kyi - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2010)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141039497 | ISBN 10: 0141039493

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. In 1995 she was freed from six years' house arrest in Ragoon, where she was held as a prisoner of conscience, despite an overwhelming victory by her party in May 1990.
 
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 co-operation, and gives poignant and humourous reminiscenes 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 both the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought and the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize.
