Voice of Hope by Aung San Suu Kyi
Book DescriptionAung San Suu Kyi is known for her courageous stand for democracy and human rights inside Burma (now Myanmar). Forced to endure many years of house arrest by the military junta, she continues to act as a focus for change inside the country now that she is free. Such is her determined action for the best interests of Burma that she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991. One of the very few people she has trusted enough to take her message to the wider world is Alan Clements. The Voice of Hope offers unquestionably the most wide-ranging collection of her views on the political situation inside Burma, her non-violent approach to democracy and human rights, her Buddhist beliefs, her family, and how she keeps a sense of meaning and purpose under the most difficult conditions.

Author Biography - Aung San Suu Kyi
Born in 1945 and educated at Oxford University, Aung San Suu Kyi married Dr Michael Aris and brought up their children in Oxford. In 1988 she returned to Burma to care for her dying mother but was caught in a national revolt against political repression. She became the leader of the reform movement. After many years of house arrest, she has become a member of the Burmese Parliament and continues to work towards the freedom and modernization of her country. Alan Clements is a journalist, writer and human rights activist. He lived in Burma for many years in the 70s and 80s, nearly 5 years as a monk. He is the co-founder and director of the Burma Project USA/Canada, as well as a political satirist, performing his theatrical monologue to audiences around the world.
