內容簡介

當世人只記住她對緬甸民主所付出的形象,卻忘記她也是別人的妻子與母親,她就是緬甸國母翁山蘇姬。

翁山蘇姬為緬甸付出一生,在她長期遭到軟禁期間,她已故的丈夫Michael Vaillancourt Aris協助將她撰寫的文集整理成書Freedom from Fear: And Other Writings,首度出版一個月後,翁山蘇姬即獲得諾貝爾文學獎。第一部分描述緬甸政治、思想和文學史 - 包括作者的父親,翁山的傳記。顯然,翁山對女兒是永遠的榜樣,儘管他被暗殺時,她只有兩歲。第二部分包含了一系列關於民主和人權的散文。特別感興趣的是翁山蘇姬因提名而為政治辦公室發表簡短聲明。第三部分則介紹了翁山蘇姬的朋友和學者。這些協助她爭取自由與民主的國際友人,包括她擔任哈佛大學客座教授、後因癌症去世的丈夫。

與Nelson Mandela's曼德拉的回憶錄 Long Walk to Freedom《漫漫自由路》齊名,必將成為一經典之作,喚醒新一代亞洲人更珍惜民主。

她另一本Letters From Burma,則從她往來書信的內容與文字,顯現她親和力與溫柔的另一面。

Freedom from Fear - collected writings from the Nobel Peace prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi

Aung San Suu Kyi's collected writings - edited by her late husband, whom the ruling military junta prevented from visiting Burma as he was dying of cancer - reflects her greatest hopes and fears for her fellow Burmese people, and her concern about the need for international co-operation in the continuing fight for Burma's freedom. Bringing together her most powerful speeches, letters and interviews, this remarkable collection gives a voice to Burma's 'woman of destiny', whose fate remains in the hands of her enemies.

Recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought, and leader of Burma's National League for Democracy, Aung San Suu Kyi is one of the world's greatest living defenders of freedom and democracy, and an inspiration to millions worldwide. This book sits alongside Nelson Mandela's memoir Long Walk to Freedom.

'This book is bound to become a classic for a new generation of Asians who value democracy even more highly than Westerners do, simply because they are deprived of the basic freedoms that Westerners take for granted'The New York Times

'Aung San Suu Kyi's extraordinary achievement has been to confront the regime peacefully, reasonably and persuasively... [in] one of the most laudable continuing acts of political courage' Financial Times

'Such is the depth of passion and learning that she brings to her writings about national identity and its links with culture and language that she has attracted the admiration of intellectuals around the world' Sunday Times

Aung San Suu Kyi is the leader of Burma's National League for Democracy. She was placed under house arrest in Rangoon in 1989, where she remained for almost 15 of the 21 years until her release in 2010, becoming one of the world's most prominent political prisoners. She is also the author of Letters from Burma.
