Freedom From Fear
by Aung San Suu Kyi

Human Rights Activist and Winner of the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize

Aung San Suu Kyi, (pronounced: Ahn Sahn Soo Chee) 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 Rangoon, 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 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 both the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought and the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize.

“This book is bound to become a classic for a new generation of Asians who value democracy even more highly than Westerners do, simply because they are deprived of the basic freedoms that Westerners take for granted.”
—New York Times

“Aung San Suu Kyi’s extraordinary achievement has been to confront the regime peacefully, reasonably, persuasively…(in) one of the most laudable continuing acts of political courage.”
—Financial Times
