Destiny Disrupted

Keunikan dan kritikan kepada buku ini Inilah antara perkara utama dan keunikan buku Tamim Ansary iaitu cuba menyoroti sejarah dunia dalam versi Islam. Add both to Cart Add both to List. I do not think it would be a stretch to say that this book has changed my world view.

This book is an excellent exploration of not just Islamic history dates, names, events, etc. Ansary juga mengungkapkan benang merah yang membentuk ekspresi umat Islam pada saat ini, akibat dari tekanan-tekanan yang diterima sepanjang sejarah.

Ansary then does a diligent job highlighting the direction the Muslim community which at this point was still confined to the Arabian Peninsula and among Arab tribes went after Mohammad passed.

Islam is a complicated religion, like Christianity, with its sects and schisms and interactions with the power of the state. Dalam beberapa aspek, ia menghilangkan detail terutama berkaitan dengan aspek spiritual atau religi dan setia kepada beberapa peristiwa yang memengaruhi perkembangan sejarah dunia. This did not mean contradicting the faith; it just meant that faith was one thing and explaining nature was another; they were two separate fields of enquiry and never did the twain have to meet.

Among the best attributes of the book is that once you reach the end, and the author puts the events of the 20th century in context, the pronouncements and policies of our government come across as not only self-absorbed but wildly uninformed, historically and diarupted inaccurate, and, frankly, preposterous.

I wish Ansary had spent some pages discussing such destinj, but perhaps they are considered too peripheral in comparison to the Middle East to worth analyzing. Buku tebal yang mempunyai lebih muka surat ini merupakan antara revensi yang baik untuk melihat kembali sejarah dunia dan Islam. As such, it features a very different set of actors and key events than the more familiar world history given above.


World history from the Islamic point of view, yes, but written very much with the Western reader in mind, which is fair enough, presumably Middle Worlders don’t need this kind of broadstroke overview. Berbalik destiby buku tulisan Tamim Ansary ini, beliau menyatakan antara sebab beliau menulis buku ini ialah apabila beliau melihat ada kelompangan yang agak besar setiap kali beliau membaca buku-buku sejarah dunia. Ada satu topik yang membicarakan tentang ulama, filsuf dan sufi.

Kali terakhir saya benar-benar menekuni buku sejarah ialah ketika disruptd STPM tahun dan ketika itu saya atas pilihan sendiri mengambil subjek Sejarah. Penulis menukilkan dengan sangat baik sumbangan Al-Ghazali kepada dunia Islam walaupun secara sepintas lalu. Tamim Ansary dan pertemuan beliau dengan Arnold Toynbee Cerita ini beliau nukilkan dalam bab pendahuluan dalam buku ini.

Tamim Ansary, an Afghan-American, suggests that Islam and the West have for much of history existed in two parallel worlds, only rarely intersecting until the violent last few decades. I think this disclaimer on his part is both wise and accurate. Be it through Western technical advisers who helped reform the government and military, or the monied interest that extended loans to find these reforms, or business interests that could buy off entire portions of a country’s economy the West slowly became dominant over the Muslim world.

I wonder how the next history of the world will unfold, now with the many refugees coming into Europe and the non-stopping war in Syria. Sejarah yang lebih moden juga dapat dikupas dengan baik oleh penulis.

Especially when people are looking for a comprehensive-but-approachable way to look at world history through the lens of Islam, there’s no better book. Tamim tells us that the great revival of Western science which followed had often been anticipated by Muslim scientists. The Crusaders were just another piece on the board that various Muslim rulers had to take into account.

The Western businessmen, government agents and flying-carpetbaggers, along with a few armies here and there, got the Muslims signed up destinj the dotted line every which way. Events since then are too recent to recount as history.

Ansary is director of the San Francisco Writers Workshop.

Setelah saya selesai membaca buku ini baru saya terdengar desas desus yang mengatakan Tamim Ansary ini seorang Syiah. P The sultan never made another attempt on Vienna but his contemporaries saw no sign of weakness in this. Tak perlu sepanjang teori kaos efek kupu-kupu, tapi memang jarang terungkap dan diungkap oleh metode pembelajaran kurikulum industri.


Saya melihat ulasan di Goodreads juga agak bagus. They made us learn a bit of history and cultural along with the language at DLI.

The big thing, where the world of Muslims came crashing down, was the Mongol invasion. Having been born Indonesian and spent some time in Europe, makes me question a lot of things, seeing the insights of both culture, dextiny from time to time trying to understand why Indonesians or maybe Indonesian muslims view the Western world as it is, and why the Europeans view the muslim world as it is. It’s a really good read. His new book Destiny Disrupted retells the history of the world through Islamic eyes.

Destiny Disrupted by Tamim Ansary

It was published inso long before the Arab Spring of this year, but to Ansary’s credit, he does emphasise the huge and growing gap between the privileged technocrats and the indigent rural inhabitants of Middle World countries, and how isolated the latter group are from the political process.
