  1. Starting in the late 1600's, and extending to the late 1800's, European Powers colonized much of North & South America, as well as Africa and Oceania. The course of human history was altered because of the fact that during the Cold War, world powers like the Soviet Union and the United States bribed these rebels and offered support to break free from their European Overlords, in exchange for them either becoming communist or democratic (Hence why France doesn't own 60% of Africa anymore.) As far as I'm concerned, most African nations became Democratic, while some turned to some form of socialism or became dictatorial.

    I think you can go from there and explain, in a complete frame, why this affected the course of human history.

  2. Also note that not all accepted these offers. HOWEVER, some accepted the support given to them by the Soviet Union and United States but did not accept any outside influence from them; for example India
