It explains the split between Shiite and Sunni sects. It describes internal and external divisions within Islam including the struggle between Iran and Saudi Arabia as keepers of the faith. It identifies other aspects of Islamic influence in the region such as fundamentalist movements and its role in government and international relations. It concludes with a brief look at current US security strategy from the Islamic perspective as a point of departure for future US policy and involvement in the region.
