This resource supports high school teachers in meeting state teaching standards on Islam and politics, and related topics. It presents critical moments and influential religious leaders in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries when the relationship between Islam, jurisprudence, and the state was undergoing rapid change. It  explores Islamist movements as case studies, in Tunisia, the Egypt, and Iran, as well as radical movements such as Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). It was created with support from a U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant awarded to the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown University, and additional funding from the Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding.
