This is the first full account of one woman's heroic struggle against SLORC, the brutal military junta in power in Burma since 1988, and an expose of one of the most violent and corrupt regimes in the world today. Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, has been leading a battle for democracy, freedom, and human rights in Burma. The daughter of General Aung San, the man who gained independence for Burma from the British and who was assassinated on the eve of Burmese independence, Aung San Suu Kyi alone made the world aware of the regime that functions by torture, terror, and murder. Based on exclusive interviews with the military leaders of SLORC, the drug lords who control the export of opium and heroin, foreign business investors and apologists for the junta, jailed and tortured victims of SLORC, and Aung San Suu Kyi herself, the story of Burma today emerges: Orwellian, tragic, and with only one flicker of hope, known to all as "the Lady."
