PENGENALAN GAGASAN SASTERA ISLAMI DUNIA ARAB DAN ALAM MELAYU                      

 

Buku ini secara umumnya memerihalkan pengenalan konsep atau gagasan sastera lslami didunia Arab dan juga alam Melayu yang tidak kurang pentingnya bagi penggiat dan ilmuwan dalam bidang kesusasteraan untuk menekuninya secara mendalam dan tuntas. Umum mengetahui dengan kebanjiran konsep, fahaman dan idealisme kesusasteraan yang berpaksikan Barat sejak dahulu lagi, ia sedikit sebanyak memperlihatkan penguasaan idealisme tersebut dalam kerangka penulisan dan pengkaryaan dalam kebanyakan karya kesusasteraan di peringkat global. Oleh yang demikian, bagi mengimbangi idealisme yang datang daripada Barat, maka konsep dan gagasan sastera lslami ditampilkan bagi menyediakan alternatif dan panduan kepada penulis Muslim terutamanya untuk menghasilkan output kepengarangan yang berjiwa Islam dan berintikan iman.

SIRIH PIPER BETLE L. EXTRACTION AND DRYING TECHNOLOGY OF ITS BIOACTIVE COMPONENTS

 

Previous research has shown that the leaves of Piper betle, more commonly known as betel or local name of Sirih possess tremendous beneficial effects including antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-diabetic, wound healing and gastro-protective properties. The presence of these beneficial properties indicates that leaf extract of betel has great potential for development into a wide range of health food supplements. However, there is a lack of research on the processing aspects to produce its bioactive component. This book aims to provide information and experimental studies on a few key processes including post-harvest betle leaves drying, solid-liquid extraction, spray drying and freeze drying of extracts which are involved in processing of bioactive extract from betel leaves.

Performance of Aggregate Fillers in Stone MasticAsphalt Mixture

 

This book was written as a reference book to explain the performance of various aggregate filler types and sizes in Stone Mastic Asphalt mixtures. Fillers are typically fine powders with particle size distribution in the range of 1-100 microns. They can be naturally occurring materials such as limestone (calcium carbonate), manufactured fillers such as carbon black or derived from industrial wastes such as fly ash and recycled fillers in the form of so-called baghouse fines that have also been frequently used. Mineral fillers in hot mix asphalt is an important component of the mixture as the design and performance of hot mix asphalt (HMA) concrete is greatly influenced by the nature and amount of the mineral filler in the mix, where an excess quantity of filler tends to increase stability, brittleness and proclivity to cracking. This book may be of great benefit to practicing engineers, academics and research students.

This book arose out of a passage that shattered the author’s thought and try to break out the idea of an object as a project of art discourse. It is about proposition and wonderment regarding the things that we apprehend and curious. A suggestion what is in our mind, and what is the possibility the view that we have lead to certain understanding and a demonstrable content. In which it derives from various background of discipline according to individual imagination. In this case, the title of the book ‘object-tive text’ – an object of seeing, imposed as an illuminate to thought on object where the idea of object can be perceived as positive and negative conceptions based how the process of interpretation being built by understanding of the text. A set of language that can create a difference but there is no distinction. The aesthetic of coupling and multiple that illustrate the gathering of unity.

Critical Literacy and Self-Identity: Narratives of Incarcerated Female Adolescents

 

This book spotlights incarceration as an act of “compassionate intention” for juveniles. It narrates in detail a doctoral study which used narrative inquiry to investigate the construction of self-identity by incarcerated female adolescents involved in a story-telling program in a juvenile detention facility. A combination of critical theory, feminism, and the Islamic religious views of the researcher served as the theoretical and methodological foundation of the study.  The study highlights how the social and institutional surveillance which constantly framed the lives of these incarcerated adolescents tended to preserve their low sense of status and to undermine their sense of intellectuality. The study also shows how the participants’ self-identity constructions can be directly associated with critical literacy, thus providing a means for empowerment through narrative as a form of self-inquiry, a stage for confrontation, and a channel for personal revelations.
