The Voice of Hope Aung San Suu Kyi Alan Clements Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Prize Laureate, mother of two, and devout Buddhist, is one of the most inspiring examples of spiritually infused politics and fearless leadership that the world has ever seen Daughter of the martyred Burmese national hero who negotiated Burma s independence from Britain in the 1940s, Aung San Suu Kyi led the pro democracy movement in Burma in 1988.Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Prize Laureate, mother of two, and devout Buddhist, is one of the most inspiring examples of spiritually infused politics and fearless leadership that the world has ever seen Daughter of the martyred Burmese national hero who negotiated Burma s independence from Britain in the 1940s, Aung San Suu Kyi led the pro democracy movement in Burma in 1988 The movement was quickly and brutally crushed by the military junta, and Aung San Suu Kyi was placed under house arrest.The Voice of Hope is a rare and intimate journey to the heart of her struggle Over a period of nine months, Alan Clements, the first American ordained as a Buddhist monk in Burma, met with Aung San Suu Kyi shortly after her release from her first house arrest in July 1995 With her trademark ability to speak directly and compellingly, she presents here her vision of engaged compassion and describes how she has managed to sustain her hope and optimism.

One thought on “The Voice of Hope

  1. Sandipan Rawat

    Aung San Suu Kyi is a wonderful lady and the book written in an interview style gives in depth view of her mind and mission Even though it s a wonderful book, I felt as a reader I couldn t do justice to the book for one reasons, I wasn t much aware of the situation in her country Burma so every time I have to Google up something to get the details background and everything By nature of interview style books its all depend on the person asking question to cover the entire context if they are plan [...]

  2. Terry Earley

    After her 4th release from house detention, I needed to read this.It was not a disappointment, though the author wrote way too much of his own questions, each designed to demonstrate his own knowledge and commitment to the cause He got to be pretty annoying Even with this, Suu Kyi handled even these questions with grace and diplomacy.What a quietly powerful woman Someday, she will get to write her whole story, as Mandela did, and we will better understand why the Nobel committee chose her for it [...]

  3. Rachel

    I would have prefered if this book was written by her and from her perspective I did not like reading about the authors opinions and questions that were worded to show his background and understanding of the topic I didn t get the book to read about him and his experiences, I got it to read about her and he was overwhelmingly annoying.I gave this one star not because I rate her life story poorly, but because I rate how this book was put together poorly.

  4. Amanda

    Bit of a hard slog to get through I guess because of the interview format which made some of the information disjointed and repetitive But that does not undermine the fascinating investigation into Aung San Suu Kyi her political life and beliefs Her integrity, dedication, calmness, charisma, intelligence and humility is very inspiring I was also moved by the conversations with other leaders of the NLD movement who continue to be so passionate and committed in spite of the hostile situation in My [...]

  5. Kay

    I was so excited for this book but it just let me down.I think it was the way it was put into a book it wasn t a story and the interviewer pissed me off a bit.

  6. Emily Hughes

    This would have been giving a full on, spanking 5 stars, but I felt that Alan Clements though very very aware of his subject sometimes got in the way of the interviews with Aung San Suu Kyi Also at points it felt quite redundant I reckon it is because the supported NLD lifestyle is quite barebones in the fact that it is nonviolent, and adheres to key Buddhist beliefs a few being to be compassionate and to focus live in the present So in the end, Alan s questioning on things like moral goodness o [...]

  7. Derek Kaye

    Despite what some opinionated reviews say, in context of the political situation at the time of interview and the fact that these interviews were seen as an enemy of the totalitarian rule, the book clearly and vividly allows the reader to get a sense of the any moment could be the last moment for dialogue and what we all perhaps perceive as our right, freedom I found the QA style investigation heartfelt, raw, real and honest Mr Clements is by all accounts a rare find having been trained by two o [...]

  8. Brian

    I continue to be amazed at the commitment of this woman in the face of ridiculous oppression, and the lack of any kind of response from the United States Maybe I m cynical but if Burma or Myanmar as it is commonly known had oil our country would be much interested Instead all they have is several million Buddhists craving peace and democracy, which doesn t seem to count for much here That sucks.Despite being under arrest for 14 of the last 20 years she maintains a positive and hopeful outlook, [...]

  9. Anni Bell-Miller

    A very interesting read in understanding a bit about ASSK and her philosophical perspective on things, but nothing like as informative as I was hoping regarding the political situation and history of Burma So many questions unanswered Must seek out substantial books on this topic

  10. Monica

    Aung San Suu Kyi is an absolutely amazing woman This book made me want so badly to be involved in a struggle like hers, and made me feel like i m not doing ANYTHING with my life But i m heartened by the fact that she didn t even enter politics until she was 42, so i ve got a while

  11. Jonathan Hyde

    An insightful series of conversations increasing my awareness of the Burmese democratic struggle, in addition to Aung San Suu Kyi s personal belief system I found her insights into Buddhism particularly interesting A very uplifting read, despite her years of house arrest and personal hardship.

  12. Sarah

    Nonostante la mia ammirazione per The Lady , ho trovato questa serie di interviste a lei e ai suoi collaboratori un po ripetitive a momenti Sicuramente un libro da leggere ma forse non ha completamente soddisfatto le mie aspettative.

  13. Yeo_heng_hau YEO

    Aung San Suu Khi writes remarkably well Just reading her one can get the sense of the genuine, sincere aspiration she has for her people.

  14. Yadanar

    Learned a lot from this and will be reading this from time to time My inspiration, my idol and my role model.

  15. Rob Carr

    A fascinating set of interviews This book gives a great insight into the fight for democracy for Burma.

  16. Liz

    This book is so inspirational and filled with love and hope for a future of peace in Burma and the world.
