The second half of the 1990s were a period of unusual stability. That isn’t to say this was a time of perfect harmony where nothing unusual happened, but given the peculiar upheavals that defined much of the 80s and 90s, the relative calm of the latter half of the 90s was unexpected. There were still an unfortunate number of tragedies and shocking events within the second half of the 90s as with the first half. Where wars and tragic genocides slowly tapered off, political scandals and costly terror attacks were some of the most challenging moments of this age.
