Omar, Kabbaj. The Challenge of African Development. Oxford and New York: Oxford University Press, 2003. White, John. Regional Development Banks: The Asian, African, and Inter-American Development Banks. New York: Praeger Publishers, 1972. AFRICAN DIASPORA The African Diaspora refers to the dispersion of peoples of African descent beyond their homelands on the continent of Africa to other parts of the world. Since human life began in Africa, in one sense the population of the world represents an ancient diaspora.

Wright, John. Environmental Chemistry. New York: Routledge, 2003. AFGHANISTAN Afghanistan is a landlocked country in Central Asia of over 652,000 square miles in area and a population of about 28 million, including several million refugees in neighboring countries. It is one of the world’s most ancient inhabited areas, the site of Stone Age cultures and some of the planet’s first civilizations. In the sixth century BC, Afghanistan fell under the influence of the Persian Empire, and Alexander the Great included it in his conquests, but several independent kingdoms managed to emerge in the following centuries.

After emancipation, black populations of the Africa Diaspora found themselves facing new problems, such as the entrenched power of those who had previously owned them and both formal and informal racial discrimination that reconstituted the boundaries initialized in slavery. Former slave owners/planters, for the most part, retained power over the emancipated populations, who now shifted from slavery into peasantry. Some became farmers in their own right, continuing with and building upon their experience in agriculture and using land made available to them.
