Whoever has participated in an historical event can only be surprised seeing it reported in newspapers, books, or other media. It almost appears as their authors have lived a different experience, sometimes and perhaps often even incompatible with one's own. In 2005 I had the honor of receiving the prestigious visionary award of Card Technology magazine, at the time the publication of reference in the smart card world. In a long article, the journalist Dan Balaban provided a quite accurate story of the Java card and of my implication in it. But of course, I couldn't tell him then what I will now relate, as it was too early. As I have always been curious of knowing how history rings when it is written by its authors, I have been grateful to be asked to write this article.

The theme of the articles written by Effendy in this book is a response to the developments in the relationship between Islam and politics in Indonesia. Effendy argues that a link between lslam and politics has occurred since the earliest days of Islam in Indonesia. Historically, political nuances have been deeply influenced by dakwah islamiah, or Islamic propagation, in this countryCopyright (c)

Study the book of Hadith is a great importance to study, especially the study of rijal al-hadith, such as Tadzkirah al-Huffazh of al-Dzahabi, Sunni versions, and Kitab al-Rijal of al-Hulli, Syi'i version. This research was conducted with descriptive analytical approach and historical approach. This study found that both books discuss the rijal al-hadith (the narrators of hadith) from the aspect
... [Show full abstract] of quality that is structured in the systematic style of the book of Mu'jam. The difference is that the Sunni rijal al-Hadits are the companions of the Prophet, the tabi'in and so on, while the Shi'ite rijal al-hadith is the Ahl al-Bait which is attributed to the figure of Ali bin Abi Talib. Historically, the two books are composed from the historical background behind it. The Book of Tadzkirah al-Huffazh is structured as an attempt to legitimize narrators and memorizers of Hadith from amongst shahabah, tabi'in, and so on. Meanwhile, the Kitab al-Rijal version of the Shi'ah also wanted to prove the greatness of their companions from the ahl al-Bait people attributed to Ali ibn Abi Talib.

INTRODUCTION We are in the midst of the "Information Age." Pundits have proclaimed it for years; articles in the popular press have plumbed its implications for every imaginable enterprise; 2 businesses are enamored with it; on-line and print magazines are devoted to it; government is wrestling with it, movies have been made about it; people are talking about it--can there be any doubt? So, where
... [Show full abstract] will it all lead and why should we care? And what exactly is the Information Age anyway? It is my intent in this paper to describe a way to think about what the Information Age is and where it will lead. And, put succinctly, we should all care because that way of thinking suggests the Information Age is likely to have profound effects throughout society--even if the specific effects are hard to see at this point. But I'm getting ahead of myself. At this point I want to suggest that it is both important and difficult to see where the information age might lead. Important, not least, because gargantuan fortunes are there to be made for those who see the future clearly. Important also, because information is affecting a wide variety of human enterprises in significant ways (businesses are "flattening" and globalizing; people are buying faxes, cell phones and computers; schools are wiring themselves in anticipation; governments are scrambling to handle information age problems, etc.). It is difficult to see where the information age is leading primarily because the technologies fueling it are still being developed and at a furious rate. It is difficult also because of the breadth of the impact of information technologies to date. With so many areas of society being affected, many effects are transitory, many are insignificant, some are contradictory and some are even undesirable. Because or perhaps in spite of both the importance and difficulty of addressing the future of the information age, there has been no shortage of attempts to do so. These attempts break down roughly into three categories. The first contains those who would project from the capabilities generated by information technology where ___________ 1 This paper was funded by a RAND President's Award. The award funded four weeks of effort dedicated to a topic of my choosing. This is a piece of speculation, with as much flesh and bones on it as four weeks of research, thought, RAND's usual superb library assistance, and conversation with colleagues can provide. While retaining blame for its contents, the author has appreciated comments on earlier drafts from Tony Hearn, Willis Ware, Bob Anderson, and Carl Builder. 2 As one measure, the February 1995 Scientific American (p. 30) has a graph showing that articles on the "information superhighway" in newspapers, magazines and broadcasts peaked at over 2800 in the Jan.-Feb. 1994 period.

This book chronicles one hundred years of dramatic developments in ballet, modern, and experimental dance for stage and screen in Europe and North America. The volume is magisterial in scope, encompassing the history of theatrical dance from 1900 through 2000. Beginning with turn-of-the-century dancer-choreographers like Loie Fuller, Isadora Duncan, Michel Fokine, and a bit later Vaslav Nijinsky,
... [Show full abstract] and proceeding through the profusion of dance styles performed today, the book provides an unparalleled view of dance in performance as it changed and grew in the twentieth century. Nancy Reynolds and Malcolm McCormick set dance in broader cultural and historical contexts, examine specific dance works, and explore the contributions of outstanding choreographers, performers, visual artists, impresarios, composers, critics, and other figures. They discuss the breakaway barefoot dance of the early 1900s and demonstrate its links with later forms and styles. With unusual detail, fascinating illustrations, and wide-ranging insights, this book is an indispensable guide to the transformations in the dance scene of the twentieth century. Read more June 2019
