Title: Imperialism


1
Imperialism
  • The push for territory

2
Imperialism
  • What is imperialism?
  • The extension of a nations power over other
    lands.
  • Not a new idea.
  • Europe had set up colonies and trade posts in
    North America, South America and Africa long
    before the 1800s
  • Now seeking more then just trading and limited
    control, New Imperialism meant that strong
    nations now wanted direct control over the weaker
    territory.

3
Five Motives of Imperialism
  • Economic Capitalists wanted both a market to
    sell goods and a market to control the harvest of
    raw materials
  • Political/Military Steam- powered ships for navy
    and trade need areas for a port to re-supply coal
    and other necessities. Need allies and territory
    if a war breaks out
  • If one country expands, the surrounding areas
    are taken and controlled by rivals in order to
    prevent further expansion of another nation, or
    to strength/ expand their own control

4
Five Motives continued
  • Religion Countries wanted to spread their
    religious beliefs, medicine, and law. Morally
    civilize primitive people.
  • Exploratory want to explore new lands and new
    raw materials
  • Ideological Social Darwinism, survival of the
    fittest. European nations were the strongest and
    the best, need to take-over and knock out the
    weaker species
  • Can lead to racism and race wars

5
Types of Imperialism
  • Critics democracy at home, undemocratic abroad..
  • Colonies- people from the imperial nation sent to
    control and transform the new colony to what the
    imperialist nation is
  • Use indirect and direct rule
  • Indirect- Native officials run the colony the way
    the imperialists want
  • Direct- Imperialist officials run the colony

Types of Imperialism
  • ProtectorateA political unit that depends on
    another government for protection. Native, local
    rulers kept. Advised by European Imperialists on
    how to run trade, industry, or missionaries.

    area exclusive to them for trade or investment to
    avoid conflict
