Buku2 dari Ecole Francaise d'Extreme-Orient
Gara-gara muncul di Jakarta Post, tiba-tiba sebuah email dari Mr Henri Chamber Loir masuk ke inbox-ku !!!

Beliau bilang, dia lihat profilku di Jakarta Post dan di foto yang lagi nampang itu, dia lihat ada buku2 terbitan Ecole Francaise d'Extreme-Orient. Dan beliau berminat mengirim buku2 terbitannya untuk diresensi oleh ku...

Wow! kaget juga dapet email dari orang se'beken Henri Chamber Loir...
Selama ini dia kukenal lewat karya2nya yang kebanyakan menyangkut naskah-naskah kuno nusantara.

Beberapa hari kemudian datanglah buku2 yang dijanjikannya itu, ini bukunya :

Memang bukan buku2 yang mudah dibaca..tapi aku serasa mendapat harta karun waktu memperolehnya....

Makasih Pak Henri dan kawan2 di Ecole....

Hernadi Tanzil: A helping hand for book lovers
From The Jakarta Post




Hernadi Tanzil: A helping hand for book lovers

The Jakarta Post, Friday, March 16, 2007

Iwan Sulistiawan, Contributor, Jakarta

As book prices get more and more expensive every year, book lovers need help being more selective about the books they buy. Hernadi Tanzil is giving that help.
The 37-year old accountant has written numerous book reviews for the national and local media.
"I'd like to help book lovers be more selective in picking out the books they want to buy," said Tanzil.

"That's my purpose for being a book reviewer. Besides getting extra money, of course," he said.
Tanzil usually reviews books about history, culture, and literature. His reviews have been published in lifestyle magazine Djakarta! and other prominent publications including Koran Tempo, Media Indonesia, Mata Baca, Batam Pos and Imajio (formerly Aksara literature magazine).
Tanzil became a book reviewer by chance. The chief accountant at a paper manufacturing company, Tanzil has been a book addict since elementary school. At that time he read the local comic books of R.A. Kosasih and Enid Blyton's The Famous Five.
When he was in junior and senior high school, Tanzil expanded his reading habit to the classical novels published by one of the Indonesia's pioneer publishers, PT Balai Pustaka.
In 2000 the man who joined several literature mailing lists like Pasarbuku, Apsas, and Klub-Sastra Bentang began writing short commentaries on the books he read, posting them later in his web blog, www.bukuygkubaca.blogspot.com.
Djakarta! soon became interested in his commentaries, seeing them as fully qualified book reviews. The magazine offered Tanzil the opportunity to write regular reviews for them.
His first review was on Herman Hesse's Siddharta. Since then he has written around 100 book reviews.
A great fan of Pramoedya Ananta Toer, Karl May and Paulo Coelho, Tanzil feels grateful for the opportunities he has been given. Not only because lots of publishers now send him books for free, but also because he gets to meet people who can help him hone his skills and increase his knowledge.

However, most publishers that send books to Tanzil demand he write his reviews immediately. Tanzil said he wished he had formal training on writing reviews. He said he often felt guilty when he could not write them to deadline.
"I've got to have a better time management to divide my working hours for the company I work for and for the books I review," Tanzil sighed.
Tanzil, who lives in Bandung, West Java, said he was happy with the growing popularity of book reviews in Indonesia.

Nowadays, newspapers and magazines usually provide special spaces for book reviews. Book review writing is also flourishing on websites and blogs.
However, Tanzil, who chose Bahasa Indonesia as his favorite school subject, pointed out that practically no one in Indonesia takes book reviewing as a full-time job. Like Tanzil, most reviewers still work a regular job for the main part of their income.
Tanzil hopes that one day Indonesia will have a kind of Oprah's Book Club where books are reviewed and later become popular best-sellers.

If Indonesia already had its own variation on Oprah's Book Club, Tanzil predicted, it could be hoped that book sales would increase and book prizes would drop. Many more people could experience the great benefits of reading books, he said.
I guess we all share the same hope, Tanzil.

From : Bung Kelinci

Wow ! siapa yang mau nolak kalau profilnya bakal dimuat di koran :





Sekedar berbagi, ini ttg koran The Jakarta Post yg sy ambil dr Wikipedia

The Jakarta Post adalah sebuah harian berbahasa Inggris yang kantornya terletak di Jakarta. Koran ini didirikan pada 1982, ketika Menteri Penerangan Ali Moertopo dan Jusuf Wanandi, yang mewakili surat kabar Suara Karya terbitan partai Golkar, sepakat untuk membentuk sebuah surat kabar berbahasa Inggris yang bermutu.

Perusahaan PT. Bina Media Tenggara, pemilik surat kabar ini, baru didirikan pada tahun itu juga. Pada saat itu sudah ada Indonesia Times dan Indonesian Observer yang merupakan dua harian berbahasa Inggris yang terdapat di pasaran Indonesia. Pada 25 April 1983 terbit surat kabar pertama dengan delapan halaman, antara lain dengan berita mengenai kegiatan mata-mata Rusia di daerah itu, dan berhasil terjual sejumlah 5.474 eksemplar. Sementara itu, peredaran dan penjualannya sekarang mencapai 50.000 eksemplar. The Jakarta Post adalah satu-satunya sebuah koran internasional dari Indonesia yang terkenal.

Kiriman dari Serambi
Eeh...tau-tau Penerbit Serambi kirim lagi buku.
Kali ini buku 'sejarah', wow...tau darimana ya, koq tau aku suka buku bertema sejarah...?

ini bukunya :

Ini deskripsi bukunya :

Judul Buku: Dutch Culture Overseas
Penulis: Frances Gouda
Hal: 524 /HVS
Harga: Rp. 79.900.
Penerbit Serambi - www.serambi.co.id

Praktik Kolonial di Hindia Belanda, 1900-1942
Ekspansi kolonial bangsa Eropa mengarah pada gagasan-gagasan Belanda tentang masyarakat berkeadaban, atau sikap-sikap fleksibel dan relatif dermawan komunitas Belanda terhadap "pihak lain" yang tengah ditaburkan (dalam kata Yunani, "diaspeirein") di empat penjuru dunia. Dalam beberapa hal, ekspor nilai-nilai kebudayaan Belanda ke seberang lautan seperti Amerika Utara tak banyak memberi makna baru "kebelandaan". Namun, di Indonesia kolonial, adat dan tradisi politik Belanda tertransformasi dalam proses migrasi menuju tempat-tempat eksotik.

Dalam buku ini, Frances Gouda mengkaji cara-cara Belanda membawakan gaya kolonialnya ke dunia luar. Mengapa para warga sebuah banga Eropa yang kecil dan tak signifikan secara politik mampu tampil senatural dan senormal peradaban dan pulau jajahannya yang lebih tua seperti Jawa dan Bali? Bagaimana para penduduk kolonial Belanda menerangkan perbedaan-perbedaan budaya antara diri mereka sendiri dengan orang-orang yang dianggap "primitif" di kepulauan Indonesia?

Dalam upaya memahami praktik-praktik "berjender" pemerintahan kolonial di Hindia Timur Belanda, Gouda juga mengeksplorasi interaksi para wanita Belanda dan Indonesia dengan pria-pria Eropa.

Semoga sempet bacanya niih...
