The only real prison is fear and the only real freedom is freedom from fear.
Placed under house arrest for almost fifteen years, Aung San Suu Kyi has become the symbol of peaceful opposition to her country's military government. With her non-violent activism and passion for freedom and human rights, she follows in the footsteps of Ghandi, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Authorised by Aung San Suu Kyi, and featuring this extraordinary woman's own personal photographs, papers and words, AUNG SAN SUU KYI - A LIFE: HER WORDS AND PICTURES tells the powerful story of the Nobel Prize winner's twenty years of exclusive dedication to the defence of democracy in Burma.
Accompanying this never-before-seen material are moving photographs and insightful captions from Christophe Loviny that illuminate the Lady of Rangoon's strength, dedication and humanity.
