Review:

'Enthralling ... His is a superb narrative that deepens our understanding of this fascinating and at times enigmatic leader.' -- Bangkok Post

A well structured and literal account of her life. -- Independent

'Comprehensively researched' -- Literary Review

'Describes the immense personal sacrifices Suu Kyi has made for her cause, but also, questions the "intransigence" of her ongoing non-violent protest.' -- FT

'The best biography yet of Aung San Suu Kyi'
-- Indian Express

What Justin Wintle's new biography captures - in great detail and considerable length - is the story and the character of the woman behind the image of a valiant, but so far unsuccessful fighter against tyranny. -- Sunday Life (Belfast)

`Richly detailed and briskly placed, with a keen sense of place...
This thoughtful book is an important contribution to our knowledge of a
little-known land'
-- Sunday Telegraph
