I view this lecture as a conversation on the need for the United States - and other Western countries - to understand the political, social, and ideological trends that have emerged in the Muslim world in recent years, and on the necessity of engaging Muslim communities worldwide. My interviews gave me a clear impression that Muslims, especially those of the well-educated and professional middle classes, through most of the present decade have grown increasingly troubled by present relations between the United States and the Islamic world, and even more concerned about the future of these relations.
