Note on Bibliography:
Since Aung San Suu Kyi is a relatively recent figure, only several books
have been written about her (or by her). Books about the history or culture of
Burma (Myanmar) are few in number. The military junta screens and censors all
written material coming into and out from Burma. All material, good or bad, about
Aung San Suu Kyi is banned in Burma. It is because of this censorship that there
are very little literary sources on Suu Kyi. The country has been in isolation
for so long, only recently have a few travel books become available on the market.
Though Burma is supposedly more "open" now, many publishers and retailers are
still against circulating travel material on Burma. Many believe a tourism boycott
will help persuade the junta to release its power over the country. Read more
about the tourism boycott and other details here.
