Today, she is newly liberated 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, now revised with substantial new material, including the text of the Nobel Peace Prize speech delivered by her son, reflects Aung San Suu Kyis 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, some of which are newly added, these writings give a voice to Burmas 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--The New York Times
