9780099491156: Perfect Hostage

Like Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela, Aung San Suu Kyi is an iconic figure, and the best-known prisoner of conscience alive today. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, at great personal cost she has steadfastly opposed Burma's brutal military regime since 1988, when she emerged as the leader of the Burmese democracy movement. As well as house arrest she has endured every kind of intimidation, including an attempt on her life in 2003. Yet if her exemplary fortitude has earned Aung San Suu Kyi world-wide admiration, inside Burma itself little has changed - as Justin Wintle's comprehensive biography makes hideously plain.

Review:

"A well structured and literate account of her life" ( Independent)

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

"Wintle's intelligent biography describes the immense personal sacrifices Suu Kyi has made for her cause, but also, questions the "intransigence" of her ongoing non-violent protest." ( FT)

"Comprehensively researched" ( Literary Review)

"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))

Book Description:

The dramatic story of Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma and the Generals
