Fragment:

"In Burma, while thousands of political prisoners are detained and tortured, and thousands more flee the country to escape poverty and forced labor, a woman of delicate appearance and fierce determination leads her nation's struggle for freedom. They chant her name, "Aung San Suu Kyi! Democracy!""--BOOK JACKET. "Bringing this story to the world is Alan Clements, an American who spent five years in Rangoon as a Buddhist monk. Over a period of months Clements met with Aung San Suu Kyi at her home, shortly after her release from house arrest in July 1995. Their conversations became The Voice of Hope, Aung San Suu Kyi's first published work since her release."--BOOK JACKET. "The Voice of Hope is a journey to the heart of her struggle. In response to perceptive and probing questions by Clements, she describes how she has managed to sustain her hope and optimism even when her husband and two sons are kept from her, and while so many of her followers and associates have been hurt or killed. What are the foundations of her strength? What is her understanding of the motivations of her enemy, the State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC)? How effective can nonviolence be in the modern world? In what ways does her Buddhism inspire her actions? How does she overcome feelings of resentment and vindictiveness? Why is the truth she speaks so threatening to her enemies? Does she envision her own death? Is there conflict between her Buddhist pursuits and her political ones? What are the limits of free speech? Is the struggle for freedom worth any sacrifice?"--BOOK JACKET. "In every case Aung San Suu Kyi's answers are honest, direct, unexpected, and rich. The Voice of Hope offers us a rare insight to an extraordinary life - along with the empathy and vision to serve also as a moral compass in our own lives."--BOOK JACKET.
