The United States' mercurial foreign policies toward the Muslim world—including actions taken against Islamic countries who have attempted to challenge the United States' regional dominance; and alliances with Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia—are expertly examined in this incisive treatise. Islamic revivalism, the emergence of a highly political Islamic population, the rise of terrorism, and other recent socio-political changes are also thoroughly discussed.

How the US has reconfigured its policy towards the radical and the conservative group of Muslim countries and how its new mission against terrorism has affected international relations, particularly US-Indian relations, is the central focus of the study.

  Reviews / opinions:    

Chintamani Mahapatra has written a volume that offers a valuable summary of the United States' tenuous relationship with the Islamic world. His thorough-going, impartial review of recent history and current events is of great utility to the scholar, student, and interest citizen. The complex is rendered comprehensible by his carefully organized analysis.

Frances H. Oneal, Professor of International Relations,
University of Alabama, USA

Chintamani Mahapatra has come out with an incisive study of current US perception of Islam and policy towards select Muslim countries. It is a well researched book that delineates the thinking and goals of leading policy planners and think-tanks in United States towards Muslim countries; and the fall-out of these policies especially for India. The work presents a balanced analysis; besides being, of course, very timely. The book is a must read for specialists and scholars on US strategic policy and developments in the Muslim world.

Chintamani Mahapatra is well known as a specialist of American Studies in India and his book is a testimony to his insightful observations and critical examination of US policy towards select Islamic countries in the context of emerging complex interactions between the US and various kinds of Islamic forces. It is an outsider's view of US national security approach and is relevant for both American and Indian scholarly communities and even policy makers.
