SECTION OVERVIEW
  • From the mid-1800s through the first decades of
    the 1900s, western nations pursued an aggressive
    policy of expansion. European powers were
    motivated by a sense of nationalism. During this
    time, Britain took control of India. In Africa,
    several European nations engaged in a scramble
    for colonies. Meanwhile, imperialistic nations
    forced unequal trade agreements on China.
    Imperialism had many immediate and long-term
    effects on the colonial nations and also had an
    impact on Europe and the rest of the world.
    Imperialism led to increased competition and
    conflict.

The New Imperialism
  • Imperialism is the domination by one country of
    the political, economic, or cultural life of
    another country.

5
The Old Imperialism
  1. Between about 1500 and 1800, European nations
    established colonies in the Americas, India, and
    Southeast Asia and gained territories on the
    coasts of Africa and China.
  2. Still, European power in these regions of the
    world was limited.

6
The New Imperialism
  1. Between 1870 and 1914, nationalism had produced
    strong, central governed nation-states.
  2. The Industrial Revolution had made economies
    stronger as well.
  3. Japan, the USA, and the industrialized nations of
    Europe became more aggressive in expanding into
    other lands.
  4. The new imperialism was focused mainly in Asia
    and Africa, where declining empires and local
    wars left many states vulnerable.
  5. In Africa, many states had been weakened by the
    legacy of the slave trade.
