Free download The Lady and the Peacock ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi known to the world as an icon for democracy and nonviolent dissent in oppressed Burma and to her followers as simply “The Lady” has recently returned to international headlines Now this major new biography offers essential reading at a moment when Burma after decades of stagnation is once again in fluxSuu Kyi’s remarkable life begins with that of her father Aung San The architect of Burma’s independence he was assassinated when she was only two Suu Kyi grew up in India where her mother served as ambassador studied at Oxfo This was a really good comprehensive overview of Aung San Suu Kyi s life and recent Burmese history neither of which I knew very much about going in democracy activist Nobel Peace Prize winner house arrest repressive You could ve fit my knowledge on the back of a generous matchbook The book is incredibly readable which is at least partly due to my lack of prior knowledge previously unknown history is basically just a story so the plot kept me hooked It feels complete and balanced and is very well researched I highly recommend the book just to get that out of the way before the next part of my reviewI have a few uibbles Popham takes constant sometimes confusing liberty with the timeline Chapters start in 1995 swing back to 1988 jump ahead to 2002 then he ll say November or something and you re supposed to realize that you re back in 1995 The first time he mentions her kids it s in a paragraph about how she and her husband conducted an epistolary courtship and makes next to no sense they exchanged hundreds of letters the family met for holidays in India What family Did they get married What year is itThe family angle is also noticeably lacking he doesn t interview either of her sons or any of her in laws or mention what happened when she got to see them again after her last stint under house arrest If that s because they didn t want to be interviewed for an unauthorized biography then say so It felt like a real gap in the coverageLastly it seemed like he was sucking up to Thien Sien in the Afterword It really rubbed me the wrong way to hear him call this guy courageous and intelligent he s the one who sicced the military on the monks during the Saffron Revolution a misnomer I now know but still a recognizable point of referenceBUT I think that the chronological liberties might have been warrantednecessary to explain certain subplotsundercurrents and to make the book readable The first couple of parts give a mile high overview of Suu s life from 1960 1988 and then he doubles back to give a in depth look and though that was not linear I thought it was a useful device though maybe someone with prior knowledge would be bothered He uses and cites to a LOT of source material from newspaper reports to personal diaries to every other biography or article ever written about her So even if it sometimes felt like a compendium I liked the feeling that I was getting a real comprehensive understanding of the subject matter His perspective is compassionate toward even defensive of Suu and her choices but I feel like my own would have been even without the slight slant so I wasn t bothered Obnoxious white person compliment I feel like it would have been pretty easy for me to get lost in the names especially because there are a few that are very common and crop up in a lot of main characters names Aung Oo U etc but he had a deft hand at realizing when it had been a while since a person had been mentioned and reminding you with a descriptor which person this is Perhaps this is a compliment to the editorIf you have any interest in Burmese historycurrent events or Aung San Suu Kyi read this It s great
