An excellent introduction to what is going on in Burma/Myanmar today
The author of this book does not pretend to be dispassionate or objective. He is on Aung San Suu Kyi's side. Frankly, so am I.
That said this book is an excellent way to get to know what is going on in Burma/Myanmar if you know little or nothing about it. The author gives you a short history of Burma and a short biography of Aung San, who is Aung San Suu Kyi's father and revered in Burma the way George Washington and Abraham Lincoln are here in America. Both are needed to understand Aung San Suu Kyi's role in what is going on today.
The book is exciting and dramatic, not because of the way it is written, but because of the events depicted in the book. I'm very glad I read this book and I would recommend it to anyone interested in understanding what is going on in Burma/Myanmar today or how Aung San Suu Kyi came to be known simply as "The Lady".
