VOA现场:仕女与孔雀:昂山素季的一生

VOA现场:仕女与孔雀:昂山素季的一生

4月1日缅甸将举行选举。竞选议会席位的候选人之一是最近解除了软禁的缅甸民主运动长期以来的领导人昂山素季。在过去20年里,昂山素季被软禁了15年之久。在缅甸举行选举的前几天,威尔逊中心的亚洲问题研究室将举办活动,及时推出昂山素季的新传记。

这本传记的出版者说:“众所周知,诺贝尔和平奖获得者昂山素季是缅甸民主运动具有前瞻性的力量;而对她的追随者来说,她仅仅是一位‘仕女’。这本昂山素季的重要新传记引用了以前没有利用过的来源和广泛的新闻报道,生动地表现并更新了昂山素季的形象。在缅甸经过几十年的停滞不前,突然前所未有地处于不断变化之中的时刻,人们有必要读一读这本书。英国独立报的驻外记者彼得.波凡姆经过五年的研究,包括秘密前往缅甸与昂山素季会面,以及引用以前未曾发表过的她的助理和朋友的日记片段,写出了《仕女与孔雀》这本书,巧妙地描绘了昂山素季的斗争,她的力量、勇气、智慧,以及她所经历过的挫折。”

彼得.波凡姆是独立报的驻外记者和特写作家,曾从阿尔巴尼亚、蒙古、南亚,以及最近从意大利发来报道。他也是《东京:世界末日之城》一书的作者。他在英国和米兰两地工作。

彼得.波凡姆最近在纽约时报上发表了有关缅甸的专栏文章。

敬请收看伍德罗•威尔逊国际学者中心亚洲问题研究室的新书介绍会,由彼得.波凡姆介绍他的这本新书。

实况转播将从北京时间2012年3月27日星期二 深夜11点开始。

The Lady and the Peacock: The Life of Aung San Suu Kyi

March 27, 2012 // 11:00am — 12:30pm

On April 1, Burma will hold elections. Among the candidates running for a parliamentary seat is Aung San Suu Kyi, the long-time democracy leader recently freed from house arrest, a plight she endured for 15 of the last 20 years. Several days before the ballot, the Wilson Center’s Asia Program will host an event for a timely new biography about Aung San Suu Kyi.

From the book publisher: “This major new biography of Aung San Suu Kyi—the Nobel Peace Prize laureate known to the world as a visionary force for democracy in Burma, and to her followers as simply ‘The Lady’—draws on previously untapped sources and extensive news reporting to present a vivid, up-to-date portrait that is essential reading at a moment when Burma, after decades of stagnation, is suddenly in flux as never before. Author Peter Popham, a foreign correspondent for The Independent, distills five years of research—including covert trips to Burma, meetings with Aung San Suu Kyi, and previously unpublished diary excerpts by her assistant and friend Ma Thanegi—into The Lady and the Peacock, which deftly portrays Suu Kyi’s struggles and failings alongside her strength, courage, and intellect.”

About the speaker: Peter Popham, a foreign correspondent and feature writer for The Independent, has reported from Albania, Mongolia, South Asia, and, most recently, Italy. He is also the author of Tokyo: The City at the End of the World. He works from both England and Milan.

Popham has recently published an op-ed on Burma in The New York Times, and participated on a Women in the World panel on Burma covered by the Daily Beast.

Location: 6th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center
