Aung San Suu Kyi manages to pair an astonishingly courageous democratic strategy with graceful political writing. These aren't dense, theoretical cogitations, but commonsense illustrations of the present conditions in Burma and how they can be rectified. This collection I suppose this is what your high school guidance counselor called "inspirational writing. Ignore him/her and his/her fuzzy cardigans.

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. Once more, Nobel Peace prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi presents us with a thrilling book, of which she is the author, but also being the incarnation of Burma's struggle for democracy. This book is (to use a rather 'heretic' term) a 'bible' of Burma's struggle for freedom, and is destined to go down among the books who made the country's and the region's history. You will read it in two or three hours without putting it down.

Mr.mclav
The work has some fine contributions explaining and analyzing the life and commitment of Aung San Suu Kyi to restore democracy to Burma. Some of her own words, reflections on Buddhist thought and politics appear here, and they constitute a very meaningful third of the book. The other two-thirds (approximately) are the speeches or writings of her friends or family, such as Michael Aris (her late husband) and Ma Than E, a close friend. Readers will develop a comprehensive sense of her life story, the life of her father Aung San, and also of her political and religious commitments. The only fault I can find with this work is that it can be a bit repetitive. Chapter 4 could have been excluded, as it essentially reviewed the materials of the previous chapters. Nonetheless readers will be richly rewarded in learning not only about Aung San Suu Kyi, but about her culture, her people, and the difficult struggles they face.

An excellent book that includes some history of the conflict in Burma and highlights the writing and perspectives of a remarkable human being. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the power of non-violence and resistance.

Before reading this book I was quite curious to read what Daw Suu herself wrote, since by that time I have already read numerous articles and few books about her and the struggle for democracy in Burma.
"Freedom from Fear" contains many of her writings, although there are other contributors as well, and is actually a bunch of articles edited by Daw Suu's late husband Dr. Michel Aris. Needless to say that she couldn't ask for more sensitive editor to take care of her splendid words and ideas.
Rather than telling you about some parts of the book I find less interesting, I will say that reading in English the speech Daw Suu delivered at the Shwedagon Pagoda in Rangoon on 26 August 1988, worth everything.
Including the sentence that may be the core theme defining the struggle she leads since 1988 "I could not as my father's daughter remain indifferent to all that was going on. This national crisis could in fact be called the second struggle for national independence". A struggle yet to be concluded.
Those of you who are interested mostly in getting Daw Suu's words and ideas directly, almost "first hand", may consider "letters from Burma" by ASSK or "voice of hope" by ASSK and Alan Clements.

I found the writing of Aung San Suu Kyi to be fascinating insight into her country, but they also illuminate much of what links us together as human beings - the need to be free from fear. She has done much for her country and much for the world in writing about Burma/Myanmar's history and her and other democracy advocates' struggles.
