Extractions: Written by M. Charalampidis at 04 Oct 2000 18:48:17: If one takes an honest, even a somewhat honest, look at the Eastern Mediterranean, and especially at the region which Historically took the name of Asia Minor and Anatolia, one immediately gets the feeling that in this part of the world, history stopped some centuries ago. Here, that historical process -the great movement of peoples, which in Europe in the 19th and early 20th century led to the end of the empires, the end of the ancient regime, and to the creation of the contemporary nation-states -did not evolve naturally. Here, the demand of history and of the national bourgeois movements, like the Greek and the Armenian ones, for democratization of political institutions, for deep social and economic reforms, and for political autonomy and self-determination, was instead answered by the Ottoman establishment, the Young Turk and Kemalist movement, with the physical extermination and uprooting of the region's indigenous, but ethnically different, peoples. The transition from empire to nation-state, and from feudalism to capitalism was undertaken by means of the biological, the physical, annihilation of the other nation and the other class. Asia Minor entered the 2Oth century with its first two genocides: the Armenian in 1915, and the Pontian in 1916-1923.

[Natural Seeds] There have recently been several books written on the theme of the human diet in evolution. All attempts to figure out what we 'ought' to eat based on the lifeway and foods available to our ancestors come up against several difficulties. One is that we there are virtually no 'wild living' human animals left on earth. Another is that of those that are left, most are in harsh living conditions that are not typical of our original lifeway. These groups have been pushed to these marginal environments by invading agricultural and pastoral peoples, primarily urban industrial Westerners, and pastoralist. The diseases we introduced all but wiped out the wild living humans, as they had no natural resistance. Very little authentic knowledge exists of which plants and animals and animals are edible, how to gather/catch/prepare them. What we can say is that people living in wooded Africa, and in subtropical and tropical forests of Asia and Southeast Asia do give us some insights into the 'natural' food of humankind.

Extractions: Course Description and Objectives: This course surveys a selected sample of the rich and diverse cultures that are Africa 's heritage. The cultures studied in this course are by no means exhaustive, rather they are indicative of the broad range of human cultures that Africa offers humanity. Enhanced appreciation of these cultures demonstrates Africa 's tremendous potential for development. The course begins with a brief historical review of Africa from its role as the cradle of humanity and the early development of civilization with impressive state systems, to its current uneven development which varies a great deal from country to country and culture to culture. The course will examine cultural features that assist and imped the efforts of new nations as they struggle to modernize. This is a WebCT assisted course and you can find your current grades online, as well as other features, such as a targeted syllabus by visiting my WebPage at, http://www.siue.edu/~dbrowne/.

Extractions: about the nigger, but don't So who and what is the so-called "negro"? If present-day Politically Correct head-in-the-sand "knowledge" is anything to go by, the negro is very much the same as a White Man. However, anyone with just half a brain left will tell you that that can't be so. After all, there are just too many obvious differences. "But," says the liberal bleeding-heart useless idiot, "it's quite clear that the African American or any other kind of black whether from Africa or not, and whether really black or just one of the shades of brown, and whether pure-blooded or of mixed-blood is simply a White Man caught in a black skin. And, brother," and here the voice is set to tremble a little, "it is our christianist duty to help him get out of that black skin and take his rightful place among the people of this earth. And, brother, let me tell you more: We have been holding them back and we should give them human rights."

Extractions: East Central Africa Links to legal datasheets for countries in this region. Kenya I Tanzania East and Central Africa The Region and Its History Islam was an integral part of the East African coastal culture by as early as 1000 CE. Islam arrived on the coast through contact with religious teachers, merchants and slave traders (Martin 1986; Oded 2000). Along the eastern coast and the islands of Kenya and Tanzania, Islam became an important force by the 17th century and remains the dominant religion today. The arrival of the Islamic religion and the concurrent Indian Ocean trade network helped to develop the coastal region into the distinct cultural and political entity known as the Swahili coast. In the 17th century, this 2000-mile long coast came under the domination of the Sultan of Oman, who moved his capital to the island of Zanzibar in the 19th century.

But the greatest challenge to historians has been to equip Africa with a more extended past - to demonstrate that modern Africa, like all other societies, is the outcome of historical processes whose roots lie deep in the past. Given the almost complete ignorance which prevailed only thirty years ago, this has been a formidable undertaking, in which the development of a scholarly approach to oral tradition has featured prominently. 18.
