about

The 2000s was the decade in which the 21st century and 3rd millennium began.
Globalization, which had intensified in the post-Cold War 1990s, continued to influence the world in the 2000s. The institutions, linkages and technologies that emerged or were redefined earlier would subsequently in this decade benefit many countries, in particular China and India. However, in other parts of the world such progress failed to address ongoing struggles with modernity, most notably characterized by the rise of al-Qaeda and other Islamist groups. The September 11 attacks in 2001 ultimately led to the United States, United Kingdom and other nations controversially invading and occupying Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as implementing various anti-terrorist measures at home and abroad in what was known as the War on Terror. The European Union saw further integration and expansion throughout much of Europe. The economic growth of the 2000s, while responsible for lifting millions out of poverty, also had considerable environmental consequences, raised demand for diminishing energy resources, and was still shown to be vulnerable as demonstrated during the Global Financial Crisis of the late 2000s.
This book relates the main events of the year 2008 including Fidel Castro stepping down from his presidency seat, the release of Ingrid Betancourt, the US President election, and more.
