Indonesian people surprised Hisanori Kato, a Japanese traveller.

To him, Indonesian people said too much of these two words, “no

problem”, which for him means “there is a problem”. Commented on

a friend who broke promises, the answer is “no problem”. The bus

came late, “no problem”. Internet hang out, “no problem”.

There were still many unique cases among Indonesian people

which Kato-san, a Japanese, could not understand. Without

hurting someone’s feelings, he shared his personal experience

using simple Indonesian language during his temporary living

in Indonesia. Nowadays, Kato-san had returned to his original

country. But he still often misses Indonesia as his second country.

Mecca is the holy city for Moslems. Inside the city

lies Kaaba as Qibla, the direction for prayers for

every Moslem. In this city, Muhammad SAW, the

great leader, the Prophet, and God messenger was

born. Historically Mecca was contested between

many groups. Uniquely the group whom chose to

protect Kaaba usually emerged as the winner. This Al-Azhar

the work of Prophet Ibrahim and Muhammad SAW.

MADINAH

Madinah merupakan titik awal lahirnya zaman

baru, yang mana setiap kelompok telah mencapai

konsensus untuk hidup berdampingan secara damai,

saling menghargai, saling melindungi, serta

mempunyai komitmen untuk menjaga keberlangsungan

hidup tanpa diskriminasi dan eksploitasi.

Sebab itu, Madinah dianggap sebagai fajar baru lahirnya

peradaban manusia, yang juga membuktikan

bahwa Islam adalah agama peradaban (dîn al-hadhârah)

dan agama berkemajuan (dîn al-taqaddum).

Islam hadir bukan untuk membabat habis dan menegasikan

kelompok lain. Islam hadir justru untuk

bersama­sama melahirkan peradaban baru yang

membawa manfaat bagi seluruh umat manusia, apa

pun latar belakang suku, ras, bahasa, agama, dan

nasionalitasnya.

(BaB Keistimewaan madinah)

Zuhairi Misrawi

Madinah is the second holy city after Mecca. One

of the privileges of Madinah compared to other

cities was that this city reminds us to Prophet

Muhammad SAW. After the Prophet’s flight from

Mecca to Madinah, this city was called as Madinah

al-Nabi or City of The Prophet. This book explains

clearly the special position of Madinah since pre-

Islamic period, to Islam period, and in the modern

time. The book is equipped with explanation

surrounding Pilgrimage to Prophet Tomb, Nabawi

Mosque, Raudhah, and other places with high

historical-theological values.

Madinah mempunyai pesona tersendiri, karena

masyarakatnya mempunyai karakter yang suka

ber sa ha bat dan membangun harmoni. Fakta tersebut

tidak hanya berlaku pada zaman Nabi, tetapi

juga bertahan hingga sekarang ini. Madinah telah

mampu menghancurkan nafsu­nafsu kebencian (alnafs

al-lawwâmah) yang biasanya bertengger pada

orang­orang pagan Arab. Itulah keberhasilan ajaran

Islam, yang menaklukkan setiap benci menjadi toleransi.

Dalam karya fiksi ini, kita dapat menemukan ke arifan lokal dalam adat

istiadat masyarakat Bugis-Makassar yang menjadi jati diri etnis itu sampai

sekarang. Demikian pula nilai-nilai kemanusiaan dalam perang yang

internal conflicts, one would face demands for

the companies’ spin-off, companies’ fanaticism,

welfare disparity between the companies, and

strong sense of regionalism. Dwi Soetjipto

as a leader never looks desperate; he is very

cautious and with strong leadership, he is able

to solve seemingly impossible problems one by

one. A milestone that in PT Semen Indonesia

Tbk is finally achieved.

From One Dollar To

Billion Dollars Company

– the story of Garuda

Indonesia

Rhenald Kasali

Not many people know that Garuda Indonesia

at once valued only 1 USD. The debt was

unaccountable, problem so acute, and

reputation very bad. Internal problems catch

one after another. This book reflects Garuda

Indonesia Corporation transformation program

which was done under the leadership of CEO

Emirsyah Satar. It is truly a wonderful story of

success.

Why East Timor (now Timor Leste)

separated from the Republic of

Indonesia, although tears, blood, and

lives been sacrificed by sons and

daughters of Indonesia?

What kind of lesson is learned from

the various experiences and from the

battlefield?

This book discusses the real life

experience of Lieutenant General

of Ground Force, National Army,

Kiki Syahnakri, who is telling us his

bittersweet experience during 11 years

on duty in East Timor in battle as well as

territorial operation.

From Invasion

to Reconciliation

Fokus penulisan buku ini

bukanlah masa lalu (“invasi”

dari perspektif Timor Leste,

“integrasi” dari perspektif

Indonesia), melainkan masa kini

dan masa depan dalam pigura

“rekonsiliasi” yang menjadi

spirit bersama kedua bangsa

bertetangga ini.

Relationship between FALINTIL-Forca

de Defesa de Timor Leste (FALINTIL-

FDTL) and Indonesia National Army

(TNI), appeared brighter along with the

better relationship of two nations, The

Democratic Republic of Timor Leste and

Republic of Indonesia. These two nations

long before were involved in physical

confrontation. This book was the first

to study the relationship between

FALINTIL-FTDL and TNI in a strategic

way and military relationship.

This study starts with discussing

strategy as a word that originated from

“military world” and later is used in

common practice; later it implies the

strategy to Indonesia by calculating its

geographical condition. Indonesia was

by its nature a Country and Maritime

Nation. This natural fact was ignored

by many Indonesian rulers. However

to develop Indonesia, a sacred land, we

must reinforce our maritime strength

for the sake of national defense.

Mama

Daoed Joesoef

Emak”, a name the writers calls his

mother—Mama. But who is Emak?

What are her words of wisdom and

teachings? Daoed Joesoef, the writer,

as he becomes the first Indonesian

to receive doctorate d›Etat (State

Doctorate), from the University of

Sorbonne, write his experience and

feeling with his Mama in this book.
