Boys' Historical Clothing: New Pages--August 2013

African history
Figure 1.--Thev modern history of Africa has been scarred a large number of conflicts. Many were wars associated with independence from European colonialism. These with the exception of Algeria mostly occured in southern Africa. Since ibdependence there have been a large numbers of civil wars, but only a few between the new African states. The primary exception has been the wars in East Africa involving Eritrea, Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Somalia. Particularly brutal civil wars have and in several cases still are being fought in Algeria, Angola, Congo, Ivory Coast, Liberia, and Mozambique, and Nigeria. The wars and violence have been fueled by ethnic rivalries, ideology, political power strugles religion (especially Islam), and other issues. The Cold War was a factor in intensifying the various struggles because of the modern weapons that flowed into the area. These wars and conflicts have scattered uneploded ordinance all over the continent like the bomb here in East Africa. And even greater problem has been land mines. These wars have been a factor, but not the major one, in Africa's inability to benefit from the economic opportunities of independence.

Some HBC readers tell us that they would like to be able to access new pages, but do not want to receive E-mails on every new page added to HBC. We have also for several years now experienced problems dealing with AOL. Thus we have created this page for HBC readers. We will list new pages or existing pages to which we have added additional information. We used to maintain a page like this. We know from this experience that we sometimes forget to add a new page, but we will try to remember to do this as much as possible. There will not be a link on our home page so you will want to add this to your favorites/book marks. We plan to only make this page available to readers who support HBC. There may be occasional changes in the URL. Just let me know if you have any question about this new HBC feature.
