Sugar Creek: Life on the Illinois Prairie John Mack Faragher’s book, Sugar Creek: Life on the Illinois Prairie, was written in 1986. The book brings a great picture about the lives of people who lived in Illinois in 1800s. In it, Faragher examined the development of the Sugar Creek area of Sangamon County, Illinois from 1817 through the 1880s. Faragher began his project on Sugar Creek in order to understand more about early nineteenth-century Americans who lived in the Midwest and the change of life of people in the particular area of the Illinois Prairie. As Professor Don H.Doyle says on the book that: “This is the story of birth and development of a rural American community, from its origins at the turn of the nineteenth century to the years that followed the Civil War.

THE INFLUENCE OF AFRICAN TRADITIONAL BELIEF SYSTEM ON PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT USING THE IGBO TRADITIONAL BELIEF SYSTEM AS A CASE STUDY BY MADU SIMON ONYEKACHI SS/PP/1958 JANUARY, 2011 INTRODUCTION Over the years it has been discovered through observation that human behavioral and personality change is a function of time as well as the sociological and physiological factors surrounding the human person. These changes are influenced by, and develop from the early childhood, and social factors such as the home and society, as well as biological factors such as birth order and gender. This paper aims at giving a critical exposé on the influence of the society on personality development using the African traditional belief system as a case study while narrowing it down to my own traditional belief system- the Igbo belief system. I will show in this work how a society can influence personality development by the kinds of behaviour it encourages or discourages, as well as what it upholds as its beliefs. PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT There are different and some times, conflicting definitions of personality.

Colonialism is the expansion of a nation's control over territory beyond its borders and has direct political and economic control over the country and its people. European colonialism began as early as in the fifteenth century with the Portuguese and Spanish exploration of the Americas, the coasts of Africa and India. However it was not until the 17th century that Britain, France and Holland established their overseas colonies. The Berlin Conference of 1884 decided which European countries get which territories in Africa which led to the most rapid form of European expansion called the ‘Scramble for Africa’ which took place between 1886 and 1914. The countries involved in the ‘Scramble for Africa’ were Britain, France, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, Germany and Italy.
The Atlantic Slave Trade: a census Philip D. Curtin Madison: University of Wisconsin Press, 1969. 286 pages Reviewed by Christopher Wirtanen November 4, 2011 Clark College The book The Atlantic Slave Trade was written by Philip D. Curtin and is an explanation of how the Slave trade started and what it was before it was fully developed. He also asks questions about whether slaves were actually needed to make the Colonies advance and grow. He goes into much depth about the pre-Atlantic Slave Trade and how the Africans themselves bought slaves. This book talks about many things other than just the Atlantic Slave Trade, by going into such depth on many topics.
This dissertation focuses on the reaction to colonialism from 1900 to 1964 in Northern Rhodesia. It will begin by giving a brief general historical review of colonialism in Africa, details of the racial attitudes of the British, then proceeds to discuss their respective political administration and finally the reaction of the natives to colonialism. Between the 1870s and 1900s, Africa faced heavy European imperialist aggression, diplomatic pressures, military invasions, and eventual conquest and colonization. At the same time, African societies put up various forms of resistance against the attempt to colonize their countries and impose foreign domination. By the early twentieth century, however, much of Africa, except Ethiopia and Liberia, had been colonized by European powers.
Marlon Constance Reg no. 2013070012 West Indian History HIST147-SOUTH-LG Professor-Lisa Gonzales 1) From your knowledge of history, what factors facilitated European maritime exploration in the 15th century? (what / who gave them the tools they needed) The fifteenth century saw an upsurge in maritime exploration in Europe which was led by the Portuguese. Several factors contributed to this, and I am now going to take an in depth look at these factors Firstly the Portuguese had a seventy year head start over the Spanish due in part to the distraction caused by the Spanish civil war and the Reconquista of Granada.
