Heritage in Islam

The works and ideas of classical antiquity had an enormous influence on Islam, not only in its philosophy, science and medicine but also in its religious disciplines. "The Classical Heritage in Islam" presents a collection of texts which reveal the extent and character of Muslim acquaintance with Hellenistic civilization and demonstrate the ways that Greek heritage influenced later Muslim thought.

The classical tradition exercised a decisive influence on the Muslim

Bagaimana dengan kerugian nonhukum seperti aset yang terbengkalai menjadi besi tua, ribuan karyawan yang di-PHK dan harus berjuang mempertahankan hidup mereka, kerugian negara yang justru tak bisa kembali? Apakah efek tersebut tidak masuk dalam keadilan yang dituju oleh hukum pidana? Buku persembahan penerbit PrenadaMedia
