Like Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela, Aung San Suu Kyi is an iconic figure, and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, at great personal cost she has steadfastly opposed Burma's brutal military regime since 1988. This biography makes it plain that inside Burma itself little has changed.

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
