LETTERS TO SAM: A GRANDFATHER'S LESSONS ON LOVE, LOSS AND THE GIFTS OF LIFE, Daniel Gottlieb

Judul/Title: LETTERS TO SAM: A GRANDFATHER'S LESSONS ON LOVE, LOSS AND THE GIFTS OF LIFE Penulis/Author: Daniel Gottlieb Penerbit/Publisher: Sterling Edisi/Edition: 2006 Halaman/Pages: 175 Dimensi/Dimension: 14 x 20.5 x 1cm Sampul/Cover: Paperback Bahasa/Language: English Call No.: 826/Got/l/C.1 *** "Dear Sam, my life was changed the moment you were born." So begins this remarkable collection of thirty-two intimate, compassionate letters that Dan ["Pop"] Gottlieb wrote to Sam, his grandson. Frank, honest, and inspiring, they address life changes we all face, each in our own way. Although the themes of the letters are universal, they draw from a highly personal well of experience: Dan Gottlieb has been paralyzed from the neck down since a nearly fatal automobile accident twentyfive years ago, and his grandson Sam was diagnosed at fourteen months with pervasive developmental disability, a severe form of autism. Dan wrote these letters with the hope that Sam would one day be able to read them, and through them, get to know his grandfather. Devoid of self-pity or regret, Dan's letters sing with the purity of a grandfather's love, and cover life lessons from dealing with parents

Letters to Sam is an enduring testament to the connection between people, no matter how difficult the obstacles to communication may seem.

LUCILLE: THE LIFE OF LUCILLE BALL, Kathleen Brady

Judul/Title: LUCILLE: THE LIFE OF LUCILLE BALL Penulis/Author: Kathleen Brady Penerbit/Publisher: Hyperion Edisi/Edition: 1994 Halaman/Pages: 397 Dimensi/Dimension: 15.5 x 23.5 x 2cm Sampul/Cover: Paperback Bahasa/Language: English Call No.: 927/Bra/l/C.1 *** In her twenty-year career in show business, which included stints on the stage and in radio, and roles in over sixty films, Lucille Ball had only modest and sporadic success. But her television program I Love Lucy had been tailored to her talents, and she more than anyone realized that it was her last chance to fulfill the ambition that had sustained her through the frustation of her professional life and the anguish of a failing marriage. For millions of television viewers, and for years to come, Lucille would in effect become her greatest creation, Lucy Ricardo. While that role revealed her true gifts, it changed her life immeasurably, and the remarkable individual who was Lucille Ball slowly began to be obscured in the shadows of Lucy. The definitive biography presents an extraordinary portrait of the Lucille that her fans have never known, based on recollections of fellow performers like Milton Berle, Ginger Rogers, Bob Hope, and Katharine Hepburn; her closest friends and family; and Lucille herself.

From her childhood, when her virtual abandonment instilled in her a relentless drive for love and attention, through her struggling early years in vaudeville and Hollywood, through her troubled relationship with Desi Arnaz, which became the basis for one of television's famous marriages, Brady vividly recounts the story of this passionate, vulnerable, and often fiercely demanding woman. Lucille is the thoughtful and candid biography this great star has long deserved. Labels: BIOGRAFI/MEMOAR, TOTAL KOLEKSI

THE DREAMS LIVES ON: MARTIN LUTHER K, JR., Sandra Millner

Judul/Title: THE DREAMS LIVES ON: MARTIN LUTHER K, JR.

The son and grandson of Baptist ministers, King's spirit was forged in the flames of religious propriety, but it was his humanity and ability to apply a sense of social justice to the most pressing issue of his time that made him such a transcendent figure. The Dream Lives On is a reverent tribute to a remarkable man who refused to stand down from the fight for equal rights in the hostile environment of postwar American culture. King's early life was devoted to scholarship. Graduating from Morehouse College at nineteen, he quickly went to win a divinity degree from Crozer Theological Seminary and a Ph.D from Boston University. It was at Crozer that King became familiar with the nonviolent principles of Mahatma Gandhi, principles that would inform his future fight against discrimination. It was a fundamental aspect ok King's beliefs that violent protest could serve only to perpetuate the cycle of violence that characterizes racism. By putting this belief into practice, King altered the course of history. For his efforts in the fight

MEMOAR OEI TJOE TAT: PEMBANTU PRESIDEN SOEKARNO, Oei Tjoe Tat

Sejak muda, Oei Tjoe Tat sangat aktif dalam berbagai kegiatan kemasyarakatan, akan tetapi dia tidak dikenal sebagai politikus, malah menurut hemat saya Oei Tjoe Tat boleh dikatakan a-politis. Tetapi itu pula rupanya menjadi salah satu pertimbangan Presiden Soekarno untuk mengangkatnya menjadi pembantunya setelah cukup lama mengobservasi bahwa sikap "apolitis"-nya justru positif karena dia lurus, berani dan correct dalam sepak-terjangnya. Saya dapat membayangkan betapa suatu kontroversi dialami dalam dirinya, sebab di satu pihak dia sangat percaya pada Soekarno dan hak-hak azasi manusia, di lain pihak suasana dan praktek revolusioner di masa itu tidak selalu menghormati hak-hak azasi. Membaca memoarnya kita melihat bagaimana suatu pribadi meluncur ke dalam

We read about her as rural doctor, trying to help a young girl escape from a terrible fate imposed on her by a brutal male tyranny. We follow her attempts to set up women's organizations and to publish magazines later banned by the authorities or endangered by fundamentalist threats. We travel with her into exile after the publication of her name on death list. We witness her first marriage to a freedom fighter hounded into drug addiction by a system that has no mercy. We share her struggle against her 'false self' and a second husband who offers her financial security and comfort -provided she stops writing. We live the beautiful moments of her third marriage with a man released after fourteen years of imprisonment and hard labour, and the love, companionship, shared struggle and the differences between them.

Knopf Edisi/Edition: 2004 Halaman/Pages: 999 Dimensi/Dimension: 16 x 24 x 5.5cm Sampul/Cover: Hardcover Bahasa/Language: English Call No.: 923.1/Cli/m/C.1 *** PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON's My Life is the strikingly candid portrait of a global leader who decided early in life to devote his intellectual and political gifts, and his extraordinary capacity for hard work, to serving the public. It shows us the progress of a remarkable American, who, through his own enormous energies and efforts, made the unlikely journey from Hope, Arkansas, to the White House -- a journey fueled by an impassioned interest in the political process which manifested itself at every stage of his life: in college, working as an intern for Senator Wiliam Fulbright; at Oxford, becoming part of the Vietnam War protest movement; at Yale Law School, campaigning on the grassroots level for Democratic candidates, back in Arkansas, running for Congress, attorney general, and governor. We see his career shaped by his resolute determination to improve the life of his fellow citizens, an unfaltering commitment to civil right, and exceptional understanding of the practicalities of political life.

We come to understand the emotional pressures of his youth -- born after his father's death; caught in the dysfunctional relationship between his feisty, nurturing mother and his abusive stepfather, whom he never ceased to love and whose name he took; drawn to the brilliant, compelling Hillary Rodham, whom he was determined to marry; passionately devoted, from her infancy, to their daughter, Chelsea, and to experience of fatherhood; slowly and painfully beginning to comprehend how his early denial of pain led him at times into damaging patterns of behaviour. President Clinton's book is also the fullest, most concretely detailed, most nuanced account of a presidency ever written -- encompassing not only the high points and crises but the way the presidency actually works: the day-to-day bombardment of problems, personalities, conflicts, setback, achievements. It is a testament to the positive impact on America and on the world of his work and his ideals. It is the gripping account of a president under concerted and unrelenting assault orchestrated by his enemies on the Far Right, and how he survived and prevailed. It is a treasury of moments caught alive, among them:
• •

• • •

The ten-year-old boy watching the national political conventions on his family's new (and first) television set. The young candidate looking for votes in the Arkansas hills and the local seers who tells him, "Any-body who would campaign at beer joint in Joiner at midnight on Saturday night deserves to carry one box... You'll win here. But it'll be the only damn place you win in this county." (He was right on both counts.) The roller-coaster ride of the 1992 campaign. The extraordinarily frank exchanges with Newt Gingrich and Bob Dole. The delicate manipulation needed to convince Rabin and Arafat to shake hands for the camera while keeping Arafat from kissing Rabin. The cost, both public and private, of the scandal that threatened the presidency.

Here is the life of a great national and international figure, revealed with all his talents and contradictions, told openly, directly in his own completely recognizable voice. A unique book by a unique American.

Michael Jackson has been a star for most of his young life. As the Jackson 5 in the 196os, Michael and his brothers stunned the world with their hip rock harmonizing. But it would be Michael's solo work that would catapult him to international fame as the supreme entertainer. After hundreds of interview, celebrity biographer J.

Pikiran kritis memandang ketergantungan akan mengurangi kebebasan negara yang bersangkutan itu. Sehubungan dengan ketergantungan itu, bagi setiap negara yang sedang berkembang, setidaknya bagi Indonesia, perlu diingat dua nama, Soekarno dan Gandhi. Ir. Soekarno yang pernah menjadi presiden pertama Indonesia dikenal karena prinsip "Berdiri di Atas Kaki Sendiri", Mahatma Gandhi terkenal antara lain karena prinsip Swadeshinya.

Atau kalaupun wujud, tidak akan segila buku ini. Dari kacamata Jakob yang waras, kegilaan Jeihan dapat tertangkap secara utuh. Termasuk bagian-bagian warasnya. Jakob melukis modelnya dengan kegilaan Jeihan dalam kewarasannya sendiri. Hasilnya adalah lukisan gila: campuran antara lukisan ala Raden Saleh dan Affandi. Lahiriah dan batiniah Jeihan tergambar dalam pigura kearifan pujangga. Pendek kata, melihat 'lukisan' profesor yang satu ini, Jeihan tidak lagi tampak hanya sebagai sosok seperti dalam lukisan naturalis kodian. Sebagai pelukis terkaya. Sebagai pelukis kelas satu. Dst.

Eliot, Nobel laureate, a great literary presence of the twentieth century, is renowned for his unique voice as poet, critic and dramatist. This first volume of his long-awaited correspondence covers the period from his childhood in St. Louis, Missouri, until the end of 1922, by which time he had settled in England, married, and published "The Love Song of J.Alfred Prufrock," The Sacred Wood, and "The Waste Land." This volume includes all the significant extant letters Eliot wrote up to age 34 as well as many letters written to him by his family, friends, and contemporaries. Here are insight into his struggle to earn a living, to care for a wife who was frequently ill, edit a magazine, and become known as a critic poet. The social and intellectual milieu before and after World War I emerges in brilliant views. Much has been written about Eliot's work and comparatively little about his life. Such was his determination to maintain his privacy that commentators, however diligent, have been largely restricted to speculation. Now, with the publication of The Letters of T.S Eliot, we will have a self portrait, a form of autobiography. Eliot's second wife and widow, Valerie Eliot, has assembled letters

from collections, libraries, and on her own extensive archives. She has written a detailed introduction, annotated the letters throughout, and provided a chronological biographical commentary. She has also selected numerous photographs of Eliot and his world, many of them shown publicly for the first time in this book. Published on the centenary of Eliot's birth, this volume is the result of twenty years of devoted scholarship and research.

Diana was many things to many people -- tireless charity worker, style icon, loving mother to her two sons - and in Diana, Princess of Wales: A Tribute Tim Graham shows the many facets of her personality in a heartfelt acknowledgement of a remarkable woman. From the moment the shy nineteen-year-old kindergarten teacher first stood in a ray of sunlight to have her photograph taken, the world recognized a new star.

And therefore i am grateful to God for giving me this gift ... of expressing all that is in me.' Thirteen-year-old Anne Frank, with her parents and sister and four other people, went into hiding in the sealed-off back rooms of an Amsterdam office Building in 1942, when the Nazi invaders intensified their persecution of Jews. For two years they remained safe. In August 1944 they were betrayed. Anne died in the ghastly concentration camp at Belsen. All the others perished too, except her father. Anne's astonishingly initimate diary was found by accident. With a touch of genius it records the strains of her unfolding womanhood, her falling in love, her unswerving faith in her religion. And it reveals the shining nobility of her spirit. Now known and loved the world over through Stage, Screen and TV adaptations, or in translation, this touchingly human document remains timeless in its appeal.

His book, A Brief History of Time, has sold 8 million copies worldwide and familiarized a whole generation with complex but intensely exciting scientific theories. When Kitty Ferguson approached Stephen Hawking with the idea of writing a book about him and asked him to help her make certain she understood his theories, he agreed to do so and also supplied her with material about his childhood and life. This book is the splendid result. It is not a biography per se. It is rather the story of one man's quest to find the 'Theory of Everything'.

Judul/Title: DIANA: HER TRUE STORY Penulis/Author: Andrew Morton Penerbit/Publisher: Simon & Schuster Edisi/Edition: 1997 Halaman/Pages: 288 Dimensi/Dimension: 16 x 24x 3cm Sampul/Cover: Hardcover Bahasa/Language: English Call No.: 929.7/Mor/d/C.1 *** Diana: Her True Story was in fact almost entirely based on her own words, supplemented by interviews with her friends. In 1991 and 1992, when this book was first conceived and written, Diana felt trapped and powerless within the royal family. She knew that the truth about her life was submerged under a mountain of royal propaganda. Diana: Her True Story chronicles Diana's unhappiness, which began shortly before her wedding day, and reveals the life of a young and beautiful woman who, trapped in a loveless marriage, had sunk to the depths of despair, from which the recovery seemed impossible. In an act of desperation, she made a decision in 1991 to tell her own story, no matter what the cost. And so she and Andrew Morton began a collaboration that was to shake the royal family to its foundations and, eventually, force Diana to seek a new life. Tragically, that new, and briefly happy, life is over. This new edition contains the story of how the book first came into being. What's more, Diana is able, finally, to tell her own story, in her own words. Its pages contain her own testament -- the closest we will ever come to her autobiography.

One of them was the twenty-three-year-old Che Guevara. Written eight years before the Cuban revolution, these are Che's diaries- full of disasters and discoveries, high drama, low comedy and laddish improvisations. During his travels through Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Venezuela, Che's main concerns are where the next drink is coming from, where the next bed is to be found and who might be around to share it.

Little is known, however, about her own spiritual heights and or her struggles. This collection of her writings and reflections, almost all of which have never been made public before, sheds light on Mother Teresa's interior life in a way that reveals the depth and intensity of her holiness for the first time. Complied and presented by father Brian Kolodiejchuk, M.C., who knew Mother Teresa for twenty years and is the postulator for her cause for sainthood and director of the Mother Teresa Center, Mother Teresa brings together letters she wrote to her spiritual advisors over decades. A moving chronicle of her spiritual journey -- including moments, indeed years, of utter desolation -- these letters reveal the secrets she shared only with her closest confidants. She emerges as a classic mystic whose inner life burned with the fire of charity and whose heart was tested and purified by an intense trial of faith, a true deark night of the soul.

Jami juga terkenal karena novel legendaris sepanjang zaman yang pernah ia buat, Yusuf dan Zulaikha. Kitab ini sejajar dengan sekian karya tentang tasawuf dan biografi tokoh Sufi yang pernah ditulis. Dibanding Hilyah al-Auliya, Tadzkirah al-Auliya, Thabaqat al Shufiyyah, ataupun Kasyful Mahjub, karya ini tentu saja tidak kalah menarik. Dikemas dalam dua bagian, bagian pertama karya ini merupakan pengantar, memuat sembilan penjelasan mengenai doktrin-doktrin penting dalam dunia tasawuf. Nilai penting bagian ini, sebagi rujukan para pengkaji dan pegiat dunia sufi, terletak pada analisis penulis yang khas, tajam, detail dan informatif tentang: sumber ajaran tasawuf, frnomena tarekat, aliran-aliran sufi, serta ditambah pula dengan perspektif pribadi sang penulis sebagai pelaku tasawuf.

Written by the author of a best-selling biography of Ibn 'Arabi, Ibn 'Arabi: The Vogaye of No Return traces the major events of Ibn 'Arabi's life: his conversion to Sufism; his travels around Andalusia and the Maghreb; his meetings with the saints of his time; his journey to Mecca; his travels in Egypt, Palestine, Mesopotamia, Anatolia and Syria; his most important books. The events of Ibn 'Arabi's "inner voyage", however, are far more spectacular than those of his outer life and are here presented directly from the many auto-biographical sections found in his writings. Through her detailed analysis of Ibn 'Arabi's works and her profound understanding of his ideas, Claude Addas gives us a comprehensive insight into the major doctrines of this most influential Sufi masters: the doctrine of prophethood and sainthood, of inheritance from the prophets, of the "imaginal world", of the "unicity of Being", of the "Seal of Saints", and many others. Addas also introduces the main diciples of Ibn 'Arabi down the nineteenth century and traces both his unequalled influence on the course of Sufism and the controversies

IBNU RUSYD: SANG FILSUF, MISTIKUS, FAKIH DAN DOKTER, Abbas Mahmud al-Aqqad
