## Politik Hukum

##### perspektif hukum perdata dan pidana Islam serta ekonomi syariah

Buku ini tersaji berasal dari refleksi pemikiran penulis yang pernah disampaikan dalam beberapa pertemuan ilmiah dan yang telah diterbitkan oleh majalah hukum seperti Varia Peradilan Mahhamah Agung dan jurnal ilmiah seperti Jurnal Yuvidis yang diterbitkan Universitas Pembangunan Nasional VETERAN Jakarta. Sehingga kemungkinan terjadi lompatan-lompatan pemikiran yang merespons peristiwa hukum konkret, namun demikian tetap dirangkaikan dalam alur pemikiran ilmu hukum. Kajian diawali dengan pembahasan tentang konstelasi politik hukum nasional yang merespons perubahan masyarakat sekaligus menyoroti persoalan-persoalan pembaruan dan transformasi hukum Islam sebagai salah satu unsur dari sistem hukum ke dalam hukum nasional.Ê Politik hukum sebagai suatu arah kebijakan yang diambil dan ditempuh oleh negara dalam menetapkan hukum mana yang perlu ditetapkan, diganti atau diatur, maka khsusus kajian tentang hukum Islam sebagai sebuah sistem hukum penulis memulai pembahasan ini dari sejarah pembaruan dan perkembangan hukum perdata Islam sampai dengan pertumbuhan hukum ekonomi Islam dan juga pidana Islam seperti termuat di dalam Qanun Jinayat yang berlaku di wilayah Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam dan tentu tetap berada di dalam bingkai Pancasila dan Undang-Undang Dasar Tahun 1945. Tema-tema yang dipilih dalam buku ini membahas seputar masalah pembentukan hukum nasional yang dikaitkan dengan sejarah pembaruan dan perkembangan hukum Islam dan politik hukum yang mengakomodasi hukum Islam dalam perubahan dan pembentukan peraturan hukum serta kelembagaannya. Juga menjelaskan tentang peranan politi hukum dalam membentuk perundang-undangan yang bersifat nasional dalam bidang hukum perdata Islam dan hukum pidana Islam serta ekonomi syariah. Buku ini diharapkan dapat menambah wawasan dan khazanah keilmuan bagi mahasiswa, para praktisi hukum, dosen, dan masyarakat pada umumnya karena memberikan gambaran yang utuh tentang Politik Hukum Nasional dalam Perspektif Hukum Islam.Ê *** Persembahan penerbit Kencana (PrenadaMedia)

## The SAGE Handbook of Educational Action Research

This handbook presents and critiques predominant and emergent traditions of Educational Action Research internationally. Now a prominent methodology, Educational Action Research is well suited to exploring, developing and sustaining change processes both in classrooms and whole organisations such as schools, Departments of Education, and many segments of universities. The handbook contains theoretical and practical based chapters by highly respected scholars whose work has been seminal in building knowledge and expertise in the field. It also contains chapters exemplifying the work of prominent practitioner and community groups working outside universities. The Editors provide an introduction and conclusion, as well as an opening chapter which charts the historical development of action research and provides an analysis of its underlying theories. The handbook is organized into four sections, each beginning with a short introduction: - Action research methodology: diversity of rationales and practices - Professional: Knowledge production, staff development, and the status of educators - Personal: Self-awareness, development and identity - Political: Popular knowledge, difference, and frameworks for change This is a key resource for scholars and graduate students at doctors and masters levels, as well as school leaders and administrators. Susan Noffke is Associate Professor of Curriculum & Instruction at the University of Illinois - Urbana/Champaign and co-editor with R.B. Stevenson of Educational Action Research (Teachers College Press, 1995). She taught at the primary school level for a decade, and has led masters and doctoral level courses in action research for the past 20 years. She continues to work with many collaborative projects with schools and school districts. Bridget Somekh is Professor of Educational Research at Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. She is a founder editor of the Educational Action Research journal and has been a co-ordinator of the Collaborative Action Research Network (CARN) for many years. She is co-editor of Research Methods in the Social Sciences (SAGE: 2005) and author of Action Research: a Methodology for Change and Development (Open University Press: 2006).

Morwenna Griffiths This chapter examines and explores the potential of action
research to enhance social justice in education. It discusses different approaches
and practices within the field of education in relation to epistemologies and
principles underlying research for social justice. Implicit in many
characterizations of action research is the potential to work for justice – in small-
scale projects or for larger social and educational ends. At the same time,
disquiet has been expressed by ...

##### Unexpected Encounters in the Changing Middle East (Large Print 16pt)

Since his boyhood in Qadhafi's Libya, Neil MacFarquhar has developed a counterintuitive sense that the Middle East, despite all the bloodshed in its recent history, is a place of warmth, humanity, and generous eccentricity. In this book, he introduces a cross-section of unsung, dynamic men and women pioneering political and social change. There is the Kuwaiti sex therapist in a leather suit with matching red headscarf, and the Syrian engineer advocating a less political interpretation of the Koran. MacFarquhar interacts with Arabs and Iranians in their every day lives, removed from the violence we see constantly, yet wrestling with the region's future. These are people who realize their region is out of step with the world and are determined to do something about it - on their own terms.
