In A Necessary Engagement, the CIA's former point man on Islam makes a vigorous case for a renewal of American public diplomacy in the Muslim world.

Intelligence insider Emile Nakhleh argues that an engagement with the Muslim world benefits the national interest of the United States. Therefore, the next administration should discard the terrorism prism through which the country has viewed political Islam since 9/11 and focus instead on the common interests of America and mainstream Muslims. Nakhleh investigates recent U.S. policy toward Islamic nations and offers the new administration a ten-point plan for rebuilding America's relationship with the Muslim world. The author demonstrates that winning over Arabs and Muslims requires a thorough knowledge of Arab and Muslim cultures and languages within our intelligence community, as well as a long-term American commitment of personnel and resources. While the success of these efforts will be incremental and hard to measure, Nakhleh believes that the current low standing of the United States in most Arab and Muslim countries can be reversed.

Stressing that effective public diplomacy must be a serious, coordinated effort pursued at the highest political levels, A Necessary Engagement charts a new course for future ties between the United States and the Islamic world.

Nakhleh writes with clear prose and insight that is grounded in years of government work experience.

It deals with an important issue of US foreign policy: the necessity for engaging the world of Islam. This is a topic regarding which the Obama administration raised a lot of hope when he was first elected, but neglected to follow up. Nakhleh is quite perceptive in outling the mega-agenda for the President.

This purports to be a book explaining why dialogue with the Muslim world is important and how we should do it. Unfortunately it spends too much of the 180 pages justifying how great the accomplishments of the CIA were on the author's watch while distancing the agency from any responsibility for the flawed intelligence on Iraq. When it gets to the dialogue, the discussion is facile and unimaginative. More student visas, more conferences, US Cultural Centers sprinkled about the Muslim world; ho-hum. It makes some real laughers in terms of analysis -- at one point claiming that the villagers in Central Asia are increasingly wired to the wider world, ignoring that much of rural CA is without electricity or running water, much less internet connectivity -- it'd be more correct to limit this observation to the major cities, but even they are so much less connected than the Middle East, outreach to them through the internet would have limited impact at this point. There is no discussion of the huge amount of mis- and dis-information that flows through the region, its cause and what the US should do about it. In the end, the call for dialogue based on mutual respect devolves into pandering to the prejudices of the masses.
