The industrial revolution was a period of time that changed the way that goods were produced. The production of goods went from manual labor to mechanical labor. This saved factories a lot of time and produced more goods than someone would manually. From the mid-1700s there were many inventors that developed many different types of machines that could be used to produce to large amounts of goods. The relationship between the industrial revolution and the European imperialism is that the western nation took over most of the nation which led into imperialism.
Later there was an inventor who produced the steam engine. This was small but powerful and can be used either on land transportation or in water transportation. With the invention of the steam machine and the invention of the railroads transporting and exchanging goods between cities and even countries were a lot easier and cities and countries received ...view middle of the document...
The industrial revolution was god for the economy but children had to suffer, they had no type of childhood. They were working long hours and never really had a chance to go out and play. Even if they were unable to work they still had to be in the factory because there was no one home to take care of them.
The European imperialism was very much encouraged by nationalism and was supported by social Darwinism. Imperialism is when a nation dominates or controlled another land physically, economically or politically. Before the early 1800s western nations did business in Africa and Asia. But soon after the industrial revolution western powers used their weapons and powerful iron worship to conquer more than half of the world. Imperialism affected people’s culture as well as their daily lifestyle.
The effects of European imperialism on Africa included giving up their land, economic growth and social problems. There were three major issues caused by European imperialism over Africa which was the slave trade, constant war, and inability to develop as a nation. The affects Imperialism in Southeast Asia were negative and positive. The negative effects were The Indians became heavily dependent on the British and the Indians freedom of speech was stifled by the British.
"In 1800, western powers controlled thirty five percent of the world’s land surface by 1914, they controlled eighty four percent." (Maxwell 1)This means that within a little over 100 years the western nations took over forty nine percent of the world. And this was known as the European imperialism. With the western part of the country up to date with all of the machinery and goods it wasn’t hard for them to take over the lands that they were in control of. Imperialism usually causes stronger countries to grow and become nations or empires.
Therefore the relationship between the European imperialism and the industrial revolutionary is made very clear. Because of the industrial revolution the western civil action took over eighty five percent of the world including parts of Africa and Asia and the end result of this was the European imperialism.
