Nelson Mandela: A Force For Freedom

Nelson Mandela: A Force For Freedom

Description:      Nelson Mandela is one of the world’s most revered public figures, a man synonymous with the long, bitter struggle to rid South Africa of an apartheid regime and replace it with a multi-racial democracy. Today he is seen as the face of world freedom, an ambassador for civil rights, a heroic liberator whose influence and image of moral integrity extend way beyond his homeland. Fully illustrated, this book chronicles the remarkable life of Nelson Mandela, from his days as a student activist and guerrilla leader to his position as iconic statesman. After spending 27 years in prison, his eventual release and election as South Africa’s first black president were landmark events in 20th century history.

Membina Bangsa Malaysia

Membina Bangsa Malaysia

Description:      Hasil koloborasi enam orang penulis akademik dan bukan akademik, buku ini merupakan suatu usaha untuk mengupas cabaran dan hala-tuju rakyat Malaysia dalam membina identiti sebagai sebuah bangsa dari pelbagai aspek kenegaraan.Aziz Bari memberi analisa kritikal tentang undang-undang, hak asasi manusia dan demokras; sementara kebebasan media dan maklumat serta potensi teknologi baharu dibicarakan oleh Ooi Heng.

Aida Aris merumuskan perkembangan serta masa depan ekonomi, manakala Dinsman merenung perkembangan seni-budaya dari perspektif seorang aktivis.

Permasalahan kepimpinan remaja dalam masyarakat multi-etnik ditinjau oleh Abu Hassan Abdullah, dan akhir sekali Syed Ibrahim Syed Noh membincangkan suatu pendekatan holistik mengenai modal insan dan pembangunan sumber manusia.

Penerbitan buku ini mencetuskan perbahasan yang sihat dan konstruktif untuk memajukan tanahair dan membina bangsa Malaysia, terutamanya dalam situasi di mana terdapat usaha di kalangan sesetengah pihak untuk memecah-belahkan perpaduan bangsa. Sememangnya, tanpa perbincangan yang jujur lagi terbuka, agak sukar bagi kita maju bersama.
