Kesatuan Melayu Muda (KMM) merupakan parti politik Melayu pertama ditubuhkan pada tahun 1938 dan dipimpin oleh Ibrahim Yaacob. KMM sering dianggap sebagai pelopor jalur politik moden Melayu yang dirujuk sebagai 'Golongan Kiri Melayu'. Secara umumnya, ahli sejarawan bersetuju bahawa politik moden Melayu terbahagi kepada dua jalur yang ketara - kiri dan kanan - sejak 1930-an.
Dua jalur ini dibezakan oleh penolakan dan juga kedekatan mereka dengan kecenderungan dan ideologi kiri; latar belakang pendidikan pimpinan mereka dan keluasan pengaruh Indonesia. Kajian ini meletakkan konteks asal usul Golongan Kiri Melayu dalam kerangka struktur sosial yang berubah semasa persekitaran kolonial pada dekad 1930-an, khususnya kemunculan elit baru yang secara sosialnya berbeza daripada aristokrat tradisional. Dihujahkan bagaimana elit baru ini semakin tidak berpuas hati dan hilang sabar terhadap kepimpinan tradisi dalam perjuangan menentang pentadbiran kolonial dan mengusahakan pembentukan masyarakat majmuk.

Fables and fairytales. Myths and legends. They are an integral part of our heritage; of the legacy of our forefathers. Handed down from generation. Passed on by word of mouth. Lamplight stories that quietly and cleverly skirt that fine line between childish fantasy and profoundly penetrating philosophy. This stunning new collection features 16 classic tales as reimagined and retold by some of Malaysia’s brightest raconteurs. They spin stories that are steeped as much in mythology and magic as they are in metaphysics. Fictions that delve deep into the power of history and fable, that open our eyes to their importance, that are a testament to the enduring nature of our oral tradition. These are tales so immersive, so enticing, so welcoming, that you’ll never want to click your heels and wish for home.

The news from Patani is like a movie: smoke, bombs, a near civil war. Yet just over our northern border, the people are Muslim, Bahasa-Speaking, Baju-Wearing Malays, just like us. With this in mind, documentary-maker Zan Azlee set off to find the real Patani, trying to separate the kedai kopi from the Humvees, the gunfights from the nasi kerabu. It’s hard to make new friends and man a camera while looking over your shoulder for suicide bombers. But he was determined to ask the question: how do people live their lives in a warzone? With his resulting film banned for political reasons, this is Azlee’s first chance to share what he found.
 
Tiada Tuhan Melainkan Allah: Asal Usul, Perkembangan dan Masa Depan Islam
Reza Aslan

Walaupun ia merupakan agama yang paling cepat berkembang di dunia, banyak orang masih tidak mengenal serta takut kepada Islam. Apakah intipati agama purba ini? Apakah ia agama perdamaian atau peperangan? Bagaimana Allah berbeza daripada Tuhan Yahudi dan Kristian? Dapatkah negara Islam diasaskan di atas nilai-nilai demokratik seperti pluralisme dan hak asasi manusia? Reza Aslan, seorang sarjana perbandingan agama, telah mendapat pengiktirafan antarabangsa kerana semangat dan kejernihan yang ditunjukkannya dalam menjawab pertanyaan-pertanyaan ini. Dalam Tiada Tuhan Melainkan Allah, Reza mencabar mentaliti “pertembungan tamadun” yang telah mengkaburkan pandangan kita terhadap Islam dan menjelaskan agama ini dengan segala kerencaman, keindahan dan sifat belas-kasihnya. Bertentangan dengan persepsi orang ramai di Barat, Islam adalah sebuah agama yang berakar teguh dalam tradisi kenabian kitab-kitab Yahudi dan Kristian. Reza Aslan bermula dengan pengkisahan nyata tentang persekitaran sosial dan keagamaan sewaktu hayat Nabi Muhammad. Wahyu-wahyu yang diterima baginda di Mekah dan Madinah dan kemudiannya dirakam dalam Quran, menjadi asas bagi kelahiran sebuah masyarakat yang amat egalitarian, yang tidak pernah disaksikan sebelum itu.
 
Tidak lama setelah kewafatan baginda, para pengganti Rasulullah telah memulakan tugas besar untuk menjelas dan mentafsirkan risalah baginda bagi generasi masa depan. Usaha-usaha mereka telah membawa kepada pembentukan sebuah kod tatalaku yang sepadu buat mengatur setiap sisi kehidupan orang-orang beriman. Tetapi percubaan ini telah meluaskan jurang di antara Islam ortodoks dan dua mazhab utamanya, iaitu Syiah dan Tasawuf, dua aliran yang dijelaskan secara terperinci oleh Reza Aslan. Akhir sekali, Tiada Tuhan Melainkan Allah meneliti bagaimana orang-orang Islam, di bawah bayang kolonialisme Eropah, membangunkan strategi-strategi yang saling bertembungan dalam usaha menyelaraskan nilai-nilai Islam dengan realiti sosial dan politik dunia moden. Kemunculan negara Islam dalam kurun ke-20 telah menghangatkan lagi persaingan untuk merebut masa depan Islam ini sehingga adakalanya kekerasan tercetus di antara golongan yang cuba untuk menguatkuasakan aturan perundangan yang tegar dan kuno dengan golongan yang bergelut untuk mengharmonikan ajaran-ajaran Rasulullah dengan citra-citra unggul demokrasi dan hak asasi manusia. Menurut Reza, kita sedang hidup di zaman “ Reformasi Islam “. Tiada Tuhan Melainkan Allah merupakan sebuah pengkisahan menyakinkan dan anggun tentang akar-akar reformasi ini dan masa depan Islam.

A married man and his young women companion, who are planning to marry in Thailand shortly, are found dead, with gunshot wounds, in a car locked from the inside, on the DUKExpressway leading out of the city during Ramadan. It looks like an obvious case of murder-cum-suicide to all but Inspector Mislan, who is surprised by the amount of political interference and pressure he gets to close the case quickly, and at the attempts to set him up for the fall. Another great Malaysian crime novel by Rozlan Mohd Noor, with an ending that will surprise even the most ardent fan of the genre.

Malaysia Human Rights Report 2010: Civil & Political Rights
 
Publisher: Suaram Kommunikasi
Year: 2011
ISBN: 9789834407087
225 Pages
RM25.00 /S$17.50
 
Suaram’s annual Human Rights Report on Malaysia is widely recognised as the most objective, comprehensive and dependable source of information of the state of human rights in Malaysia. It documents the human rights violations as well as the struggles of human rights defenders that take place in Malaysia during the year. In this 2010 report, we note that despite promises of reforms and greater respect for human rights, the Najib Administration continued to display intolerance towards dissent and free speech. Proposed cyber-sedition law signaled the increase in further crackdowns on the freedom of expression. State institutions such as the police continued to suffer from a serious crisis of public confidence due to the failure of the government to implement long-awaited reforms such as the recommendations made by the Royal Commission on the Police.
 
Proposed amendments to the Internal Security Act (ISA), concerning the proposal to reduce the period of solitary confinement from 60 days to 30 days, fail to address the fundamental flaw in the Act itself and detention without trial. It is clear that the government wishes to keep the ISA as a convenient tool to instil fear and stifle political dissent. Other repressive laws like the Sedition Act, the Official Secrets Act and the Police Act remain firmly in place, compromising the government’s pledges to uphold civil liberties and to create an information society. Police shootings recorded throughout 2010 revealed the continued lack of accountability and the impunity of law enforcement agencies.
