The Daughter

A Political Biography of Aung San Suu Kyi

As the Rohingya crisis exploded, observers of Myanmar were shocked to see Aung San Suu Kyi, champion for the causes of liberal democracy and human rights, stand by as atrocities tore apart the western reaches of her country. The Daughter is an in-depth exploration of this icon-turned-leader and of the people, ideas, and experiences that have shaped her political identity. What emerges is not a shift in ideology but a consistent picture of the contrasts and multidimensionality that have defined her—prisoner and leader, principled resistor and pragmatic politician, the Lady and Mother Suu.

Translated and updated from the original German, The Daughter is essential reading for professionals, journalists, and other observers seeking to understand Aung San Suu Kyi's role in Myanmar.
