From the 1870’s to 1900’s, Britain had one of the largest and most powerful armies in the world. With that sort of potential, it would’ve been a mistake not to colonize Africa. Taking control of the tip of Africa was extremely strategic of Britain, as from there they could control the trading routes and begin settling for future invasions and in the end, colonization. Also, the new Capitalist society forming because of Britain’s industrial revolution developed social problems many obvious social problems. The gap between the rich and the poor was larger than ever, and homelessness was on the rise as cities became extremely dense and overpopulated.
One change caused by social media has been more public access to politicians. Even the current United States president is active on social media: something unheard of only twenty years ago. Yet, this ability to see politicians “unfiltered” may have an effect on political participation. To understand this change, however, we must understand how social media has changed the concept of political participation as well. As researched by Natalie Fenton & Veronica Barassi, alternative media such as social media has given rise to creative and autonomous forms of political participation.
Though no single or conclusive definition exists, ‘globalization’ generally pertains to the deepening and broadening of world-wide interconnectedness. Globalization is a far-reaching process which encompasses not only the political and economic but also the socio-cultural. The concept has achieved increased popularity following the Cold War but the actual process of globalization is no recent phenomenon; in the second millennium BCE the Silk Road, for example, allowed Chinese silks to be traded in Ancient Egypt.

Globalization is important as it is a term of changes in societies and worlds economy, that leads to border movement, new investments, and cultural changes. Globalization process has been used for many centuries, but only in recent time globalization became the most focused discussion. One of the reasons why globalization is important issue is because of the world economic problem and different businesses.
This gave rise deindustrialization and pushed trade beyond their borders. Intercontinental trade rose and this influenced prices too. It could be reasoned that trade could have influenced price factors for several centuries before the structural break occurred. The dynamics of accumulation, the agents of expansion, and opposition have-not always been the same. There has been a significant difference in the various phases of the development of capitalism through this period.
Africa has grown as the world has changed although it has had to deal with internal conflicts and demands for political change due to its authoritarian regimes. Chapter 2 begins with the Heritage of Colonialism. This is an important aspect for the remainder of the book.

The term “public behavior” refers not only to how people act in physical public spaces, but also actions on the Internet. Lastly, the definition of identity, as adopted by Sabrina Worsham, professor in the Speech Communication department at Imperial Valley College, will be accepted as a social construct that is partially mended by external forces (Worsham).
