Aung San Suu Kyi’s collected writings—edited by her late husband, who the ruling military junta prevented from visiting Burma as he was dying of cancer—reflects her greatest hopes and fears for her fellow Burmese people, and her concern about the need for international cooperation in the continuing fight for Burma’s freedom. Bringing together her most powerful speeches, letters and interviews, this remarkable collection gives a voice to Burma’s “woman of destiny,” whose fate remained in the hands of her enemies for fifteen years, before her release from house arrest in 2010.


"A Classic."

“Aung San Suu Kyi’s extraordinary achievement has been to confront the regime peacefully, reasonably, and persuasively…[in] one of the most laudable continuing acts of political courage.”

“Such is the depth of passion and learning that she brings to her writings about national identity and its links with culture and language that she has attracted the admiration of intellectuals around the world.”
