Summary
As one senior UN official put it, Burma is a country where "just to turn your head can mean imprisonment or death." Aung San Suu Kyi is considered to be Burma's best hope for freedom. Because of her unwavering commitment to nonviolent resistance to the country's brutal military junta, she has been under house arrest since 1989. Elected prime minister, she was prevented from taking office. Despite failing health, vilification at the hands of the Burmese media, and actual imprisonment in one of the world's most appalling jails, Suu Kyi has persevered in a campaign of nonviolent protest as unflagging as those of Gandhi, King, and Mandela. Perfect Hostage, the most thorough biography of Suu Kyi to date, tells both the story of the Burmese people and the story of an ordinary person who became a hero
Summary
A portrait of the Burmese activist minister and non-violence advocate describes the factors that contributed to her house arrest in 1989, her work to promote non-aggressive civil resistance, and her receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991
