Aung San Suu Kyi. Llibertat sense por i altres escrits. Barcelona: Institut Català Internacional per la Pau; Angle, 2013. Col·lecció Clàssics de la pau i de la noviolència, 6.

This collection of writings by the Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi reflect her greatest hopes and fears for her people during the military dictatorship which subdued the Burmese for nearly fifty years (1962-2011), and her concern about the need for international co-operation for real freedom and democracy to be possible in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.

Freedom from Fear compiles Aung San Suu Kyi’s most forceful speeches, moving correspondence, direct interviews and thoughtful texts; and it allows readers to listen to the voice of this strong leader who, despite being under home confinement for twnety years, faced the military governments that subdued her country and spoke inspiringly to her fellows oppressed in Burma and to the rest of the world.
