Sebagai seorang Kristen fundamentalis, dulu aku mendukung Israel. Pengalamanku di Sabra-Shatila menyadarkanku bahwa orang Palestina adalah manusia. Kebodohan dan prasangka telah membutakan mataku dari penderitaan bangsa Palestina. Buku ini adalah kesaksianku. Mulanya, karena latar belakang religinya, dr. Ang Swee Chai adalah pendukung Israel. Di matanya, orang Palestina adalah teroris. Namun, pada 1982, Israel menyerang Beirut dengan brutal. Keyakinannya pun mulai goyah. Ia putuskan untuk membuktikan sendiri dengan menjadi sukarelawan medis di Beirut. Di sana, di kamp pengungsian Palestina, setelah menjadi saksi Pembantaian Sabra-Shatila, akhirnya ia temukan jawaban. Ia berbalik memihak rakyat Palestina, memihak keadilan dan kemanusiaan. Di tanah asing, ia pertaruhkan nyawanya untuk membela orang-orang yang tak punya hubungan darah maupun etnis dengan dirinya, untuk melaksanakan kewajibannya sebagai dokter, sebagai manusia. ?Saya menangis ketika membaca buku ini untuk pertama kalinya. Ilmu kedokteran dan keterampilan sastra menjadikan kesaksian ini begitu mengiris.? ?Farid Gaban, Pena Indonesia ?Buku yang membuat orang AS marah karena kesaksiannya yang berani. Tidak lama kemudian, penerbitan buku ini dihentikan peredarannya di AS.? ?Media Indonesia ?Pembaca akan merasakan kepedihan dan pergolakan yang dialamai dr. Ang Swee. Membaca buku ini berarti merasakan dari dekat pembantaian manusia.? ?Koran Tempo ?Buku yang ditulis secara detail dan menerobos relung jiwa.? ?Gatra ?Catatan yang amat personal tentang kehidupan di kamp pengungsian.? ?The Times ?Penggambaran dr. Ang dalam buku ini membuat peristiwa-peristiwa tersebut terasa seoalah-olah baru terjadi kemarin.? ?The Independent ?Sebuah kesaksian tentang pembantaian manusia yang menukik hingga inti permasalahannya.? ?The Guardian Dr. Ang Swee Chai lahir di Malaysia dan dibesarkan di Singapura. Sejak 1977, bersama suaminya tinggal di Inggris. Kini, ia bekerja di St. Bartholomew?s Hospital dan the Royal London Hospital sebagai orthopaedic consultant. Setelah terjadinya Pembantaian Sabra-Shatila, bersama beberapa rekannya, dr. Ang membentuk Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP). Pada 1987, Pemimpin PLO, Yasser Arafat, menganugerahi dr. Ang Star of Palestine, penghargaan tertinggi bagi pengabdian kepada rakyat Palestina. Hingga kini, melalui MAP dr. Ang terus aktif membantu bangsa Palestina. [Mizan, Qanita, Novel, Memoar, Indonesia]

In Jerusalem, Israeli and Jordanian militias patrolled a fortified, impassable Green Line from 1948 until 1967. In Nicosia, two walls and a buffer zone have segregated Turkish and Greek Cypriots since 1963. In Belfast, "peaceline" barricades have separated working-class Catholics and Protestants since 1969. In Beirut, civil war from 1974 until 1990 turned a cosmopolitan city into a lethal patchwork of ethnic enclaves. In Mostar, the Croatian and Bosniak communities have occupied two autonomous sectors since 1993. These cities were not destined for partition by their social or political histories. They were partitioned by politicians, citizens, and engineers according to limited information, short-range plans, and often dubious motives. How did it happen? How can it be avoided? Divided Cities explores the logic of violent urban partition along ethnic lines—when it occurs, who supports it, what it costs, and why seemingly healthy cities succumb to it. Planning and conservation experts Jon Calame and Esther Charlesworth offer a warning beacon to a growing class of cities torn apart by ethnic rivals. Field-based investigations in Beirut, Belfast, Jerusalem, Mostar, and Nicosia are coupled with scholarly research to illuminate the history of urban dividing lines, the social impacts of physical partition, and the assorted professional responses to "self-imposed apartheid." Through interviews with people on both sides of a divide—residents, politicians, taxi drivers, built-environment professionals, cultural critics, and journalists—they compare the evolution of each urban partition along with its social impacts. The patterns that emerge support an assertion that division is a gradual, predictable, and avoidable occurrence that ultimately impedes intercommunal cooperation. With the voices of divided-city residents, updated partition maps, and previously unpublished photographs, Divided Cities illuminates the enormous costs of physical segregation.

A New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year A Washington Post Best Book of the Year A Businessweek Best Business Book of the Year A Chicago Tribune Best Book of the Year In this brilliant, essential book, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Thomas L. Friedman speaks to America's urgent need for national renewal and explains how a green revolution can bring about both a sustainable environment and a sustainable America. Friedman explains how global warming, rapidly growing populations, and the expansion of the world's middle class through globalization have produced a dangerously unstable planet--one that is "hot, flat, and crowded." In this Release 2.0 edition, he also shows how the very habits that led us to ravage the natural world led to the meltdown of the financial markets and the Great Recession. The challenge of a sustainable way of life presents the United States with an opportunity not only to rebuild its economy, but to lead the world in radically innovating toward cleaner energy. And it could inspire Americans to something we haven't seen in a long time--nation-building in America--by summoning the intelligence, creativity, and concern for the common good that are our greatest national resources. Hot, Flat, and Crowded is classic Thomas L. Friedman: fearless, incisive, forward-looking, and rich in surprising common sense about the challenge--and the promise--of the future.
