a. What are the effects of the European Colonial Period, including the earlier slave trade on the current political and economic situation in sub-Saharan Africa? Most of the older Africans today grew up under the colonial rule and lived through World War II and have experienced the instabilities of the post independence years. Unlike other Democratic counties where the country is ruled by the people, African independence has usually resulted in the continues rule of the few, though the new elites are indigenous, not foreign. The urban community enjoys the benefits from the state-run programs. Most of the Small middle and upper classes benefit from government. The policies are made by few members and they usually don’t benefit the public, instead it is usually driven by self- interest and greed. b. Why do many Africans believe that their own governments and leaders have not served them well? Are there exceptions to this pattern?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
