Description
Aung San Suu Kyi, human-rights activist and leader of Burma's National League for Democracy, was sentenced to six years' house arrest in Rangoon in 1989 by SLORC, the ruling military junta.<P>In this collection of writings from her imprisonment, Aung San Suu Kyi paints a vivid, poignant yet fundamentally optimistic picture of her native land. Letters from Burma evokes the country's seasons, customs, festivities and celebrates the courageous army officers, academics, and actors who risked their reputations and careers by their support of the National League for Democracy. Aung San Suu Kyi reveals an acute insight into the impact of political limitations on peoples' lives by examining the effects of inflation on the national diet and advocating better healthcare and educational programs.<P>This woman's vision, humanity, and commitment to political and ethnic harmony won her party an overwhelming victory in the elections of May 1990; every facet of her personality is powerfully displayed in these revelatory letters.
