From the Publisher: When Aung San Suu Kyi returned to her native Burma to tend to her ailing mother, no one could have known that, within a few months, the quiet woman would become a leader of her people. In 1989, after Suu Kyi had worked only a year in Burma's renewed struggle for democracy, the military government place her under house arrest. The following years, while still confined to her home, Suu Kyi led Burma's National League for Democracy to victory in a national election. The military government refused to recognize the election. In 1991, still under arrest, Aung San Suu Kyi won the Nobel Peace Prize. Upon her release from house arrest in 1995, thousands flocked to Suu Kyi's home in Rangoon to hear her speak. There she offered hope that democracy may yet blossom in Burma. Whitney Stewart's biography, based on personal interviews with Aung San Suu Kyi and those around her, illuminates the dangers endured and the triumphs enjoyed by this inspiring woman, who has been put back under house arrest in her homeland. Additional materials by Burmese authors brings this fascinating biography right up-to-date, including the Saffron Revolution of 2007

Aung San and the struggle for Burmese independence by Angelene Naw ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Aung San, "the architect of Burma's freedom," was one of the most important political figures in the history of Burma's struggle for independence. Beginning as a student leader and activist in the 1930s, Aung San went on to assume prominent leadership oppositions in Burma's nationalist movement ... Aung San's tragic assassination in 1947 at the age of thirty-two denied him the privilege of seeing his country claim the independence to which he had dedicated his life. [In this volume, the author] sets the life of Aung San squarely in the context of Burma's historic struggle for freedom, which indeed is the story of Aung San's own struggle.-Back cover
