Dissertation Writers: The New Imperialism of the late 19th century
The New Imperialism of the late 19th century was clearly related to the industrialization of Europe and the advantages derived from aggressive expansion overseas, especially in the vitually unknown African interior.

Additionally, issues like foreign debt, HIV/AIDS, and international exploitation plague the continent. Without going into depth about those issues, could any of this be the legacy of colonization in Africa? Why or why not?
