Summary

Just like Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi, the leader of Burma's democracy movement, Aung San Suu Kyi, has become an icon for freedom - throughout the world, she is associated with a peaceful struggle for democracy and human rights. But what is she really like? What drives her to make such enormous personal sacrifices for her country? Bengtsson draws a portrait of one of the most most talked about political personalities of our times.
