Summary
When Aung San Suu Kyi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 for working to bring democracy to Myanmar, she was unable to attend the ceremony held in her honor, she was under house arrest for the very work that earned her the prize. Ultimately, Suu Kyi spent fifteen years incarcerated, but her faith in peaceful resistance never wavered. This book explains the struggle to bring democracy to Myanmar, profiles Suu Kyi and her activism, and examines the complexity of her unfolding legacy
