Publisher Description

Through a series of intimate, feature-length conversations with Alan Clements, Burma’s Voices of Freedom brings together dozens of the country’s most respected and well-known politicians, pro-democracy activists, artists and religious leaders to provide one of the most detailed accounts of Burma’s decades long struggle for freedom ever compiled. Together, these voices describe the courage and conviction required to nonviolently confront injustice anywhere, whether on a stage, in a demonstration, or in solitary confinement.



Combined with extensive archival material spanning 30 years, and drawing upon Clements’ lifetime of connections within Burma, these four volumes provide an inside account of the ongoing struggle for democracy as it has evolved from the time of Aung San Suu Kyi’s release from house arrest in 2010, through the National League for Democracy election victory in 2015, and on to the upcoming national elections in late 2020, detailing their implications on the very future of freedom itself.



Volume 1: Key excerpts from decades of interviews, speeches and presentations by Aung San Suu Kyi, followed by expansive conversations with three of her longest and closest colleagues, U Tin Oo, U Win Tin and U Win Htein (542 pages).



Volume 2: Interviews with key National League for Democracy party members, prominent Buddhist, Muslim and Catholic leaders, and veteran activists such as Min Ko Naing and Ko Ko Gyi, both of whom served nearly two decades in prison (416 pages).



Volume 3: Includes interviews with a broader range of spoken-word activist comedians, musicians, award-winning artists, journalists, and renowned politicians (466 pages).



Volume 4: Finishes the series with a set of scholarly appendices, including historical speeches and articles and a lengthy detailed chronology and analysis of key political events over the last 30 years (570 pages).



ALAN CLEMENTS, author of The Voice of Hope: Conversations with Aung San Suu Kyi (1996) and one of the first Americans to ordain and live as a Buddhist monk in Burma, is the founder of World Dharma and the Burma Project USA and a veteran activist, author, artist, and speaker whose previous books have been met with critical acclaim.



FERGUS HARLOW has been Alan Clements’ assistant and co-author since late 2012, and an unaffiliated student of the Dhamma since 2004.
