England established puppet political leaders all over the country. They introduced railroads, modern technology, and higher education. The Indians tried to revolt multiple times. Pakistan and India fought multiple civil wars, Gandhi was murdered. India is the world’s largest democracy with over 1.2 billion people. They have all the conveniences and strong economy of westernized countries yet of the population lives below the poverty line. India exports much of the world’s IT software & services and is one of the few countries in the world that has nuclear weapons. Congo It had been occupied by four large empires: the Luba Empire, the Lunda Empire, the Kongo Empire and the Yeke Kingdom. Out of these three, the Luba Empire was the largest and dominated most of the land. The empire united many smaller kingdoms throughout the area in the 16th century. The dense jungle, diseases, and unknown animals that lived in it scared European explorers away for years. Belgium went to the Congo to take resources, and control land. They had the Maxim gun, and were able to take over rapidly. They forced the Congolese into labor, and brutally harmed those who failed to work properly. The leader who forced out the Belgians was assassinated. A new leader, backed by the United States, took over. Then, the US left and there was a void left in Africa. The Congo today, much like many other African countries, is in economic ruins. There are children being used to mine materials in dangerous environments. Written Response

    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.
