Using case studies of heritage buildings in both tropical and cold climates, the author’s testing of the Green Maintenance model demonstrates that the selection of repair options can be based not only on cost and philosophy of heritage building conservation, but also how ‘green’ repair techniques are.

It also offers sound advice to all those involved in sustainable repair and serves as a useful resource in heritage building conservation.

In addition to demystifying the intricacies of formatting and citation, APA Style & Citations for Dummies has got you covered in all matters of grammar and punctuation as well as guidance on how APA style can help you negotiate issues around the ethics of authorship and the importance of word choice in reducing bias.

7. Land Development on Highland Areas Malaysia and Hong Kong           

Land Development

Pengarang    :  Anuar Alias    

Imprint            :  Kuala Lumpur:  University Malaya Press, 2018

Muka surat    :  163

Sinopsis :

This book focuses on land development in highland areas. It discusses land use planning, laws and regulations pertaining to land development on highlands. The increasing cases of development failures on highland areas have led to the need for the authorities and professionals to explore and find solutions to mitigate the problems. The main aim of this book is to compare the issues and process of land development on highland areas between Malaysia and Hong Kong.

Hong Kong is chosen for benchmarking, based on its success in managing highland developments. The discussion aims to gauge the effectiveness of land development legislation and development approaches for highland development. From the comparison made, it appears that in Malaysia, the land development mechanism on highlands is still in the infancy stage whereby current property laws and regulations still fail to achieve highland development standards compared with Hong Kong.

Thus, a practical framework is suggested to ensure the land development on highlands in Malaysia will be at a similar standard as the Hong Kong mechanism in managing highland development.

10. Nasihat Untuk Setiap Wanita Yang Beriman

Nasihat utk wanita

Pengarang    :  Muhammad Said Ramadan Al-Buti           

Imprint            :  Kuala Lumpur:  Nizamiyyah Publications, 2021

Muka surat    :  90

Sinopsis :

Isu berhubung dengan wanita memang sentiasa hangat diperkatakan sepanjang masa dan zaman. Hal ini boleh kita simpulkan betapa penting untuk kita tahu isu yang dibangkitkan bukanlah suatu picisan atau bersifat pinggiran. Perkara ini melibatkan maruah, harga diri dan pegangan kepercayaan wanita tersebut yang menjadikan perbualan dan perbincangan mengenai wanita senantiasa ditimbulkan wacananya.

Setiap kelompok dan pendokong yang berusaha memperjuangkan hak dan nasib wanita biasanya mempunyai agenda mereka tersendiri terutama yang membabitkan gerakan ideologi. Terdapatnya dua kelompok yang ekstrem sama ada ekstrem supaya sifat semula jadi wanita adalah bebas dari sebarang ikatan dan adat, ataupun wanita ini sifatnya perlu dikawal sebagai kongkongan secara ketat agar mereka dapat dibersihkan dari bawaan sifat hina dan keji.

Karya al-Syahid Shaykh Dr. Ramadhan al-Buti ini telah menyimpulkan beberapa persoalan genting dan penting yang dilalui oleh para wanita. Beliau telah menampilkan suatu bentuk simbiosis dan interaksi antara realiti hidup wanita dan pengamalan dalam agama. Di dalamnya Shaykh menujukan nasihat yang tepat seolah-olah beliau merasai dan menjiwai permasalahan yang dihadapi oleh kaum wanita. Cabaran-cabaran yang dihadapi oleh kaum wanita sepanjang zaman adalah berbeza.

Sementara pada era sekarang ini, bentuknya mungkin sama pada puluhan tahun kebelakang tetapi dengan situasi realitinya yang berbeza. Oleh itu, amat tepat apabila Shaykh al-Buti menampilkan perjawaban yang relevan bagi persoalan semasa kini.
