INFORMATION OM PRODUKTEN

She was a heroine of our time, a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, a symbol of supreme courage in the face of tyranny. Then, in 2010, Burma's generals opened the door a chink: Aung San Suu Kyi was released from house arrest, and her country began to change. Suu Kyi's acclaimed biographer, Peter Popham, describes what happened next. Travelling across the country, meeting aristocrats, monks and politicians, freedom fighters, punks and rebels, he shows how hope has slowly returned to the lives of ordinary Burmese. He also examines the fate of the hill tribes, and how the world's politicians and businessmen are striving for influence. But with greater openness, long-suppressed prejudices have burst into the open: intolerant Buddhist preachers have whipped up the latent hostility of the Burmese against people of other races and beliefs, especially the Muslim Rohingya. When Aung San Suu Kyi was elected to parliament, she began to negotiate with the military. Yet she has declined to take a firm stand on minority rights - to the dismay of many in the West. The Lady and the Generals offers a trenchant and compelling portrait of this fascinating country and asks where Burma and Suu Kyi herself - with her bravery, her brilliance and her limitations - are heading next.
