Why Raising Money To Fight Ebola Is Hard | AP Human Geography @ Hermitage High School - Ms. Anthony | Scoop.it

The Newest Countries in the world

The Newest Countries in the world | AP Human Geography @ Hermitage High School - Ms. Anthony | Scoop.it

"Will Scotland follow the same fate as any of the other young nations in the world? Perhaps, but probably not. A glance down the list of the nine newest sovereign states below reveals that each situation is unique: It's hard to fully equate Scotland's situation with that of Slovakia, let alone with East Timor.

Even so, a glance back at history does show that the world's borders are changing more than we might appreciate: And the changes can sometimes take some time to settle."
