One glance at a modern world map shows Europe as significantly smaller than its neighbouring landmasses. Yet at one time, most of the world was dominated by European flags. This era is known as the Age of Imperialism and was developed in major European countries in the 19th and 20th centuries. Powerful nations, such as Great Britain, France, and Germany, sought to expand their empires through colonizing mainly parts of Asia and Africa. This age led to great industrial growth; yet there were many unanticipated results, such as the Balkan Wars, Moroccan Crises, and ultimately, the initiation of World War...VIEW DOCUMENT
Imperialism is the policy of extending a nation's authority by territorial acquisition or by the establishment of economic and political hegemony over other nations. Old Imperialism took place before the onset of the Industrial revolution, during that time period contact and the ability to conquer lands was limited due to the fact of a lack of technology and knowledge.

British Impact on African Imperialism
Great Britain is known for the empire it built in the 19 th century. But what were the driving forces behind their expansion across the globe? It wasn't all about economics and money. The English felt they were taking on a moral role in assuming the "burden" of changing Africa into a place modeled after their own land. But really the burden fell on the people of Africa, and the British were the ones who benefited.
After the Industrial Revolution, Britain was one of the the most powerful countries in the world....VIEW DOCUMENT

gaining its independence from Britain and how the Hindus and Muslims utilized non-violent
protests to achieve this goal. This film reflects imperialism in the sense that what went on in the

extending the rule or influence of a country over another country. Indeed this was the case in
India during the time of Gandhi, this was what he was fighting against.

Imperialism is defined by The American Heritage Dictionary of English Language as "The policy of extending a nation's authority by territorial acquisition or by the establishment of economic and political hegemony over other nations."...VIEW DOCUMENT

Nationalism: A Catalyst For Expansion
The late nineteenth century was marked by the aggrandization of the United States as it expanded externally and involved itself in international affairs. During this time period, the Monroe Doctrine of 1823, which previously fostered neutrality and isolation, was quietly abandoned and eventually replaced with a foreign policy of involvement. The United States adopted imperialism, or the process in which a group of people extends its influence over another territory. Following this policy, the previously neutral country began to actively intervene in the affairs of others. This...VIEW DOCUMENT
There is much talk today about a "new imperialism" being promoted by financial capital and multinational corporations.

A new form of imperialism in which a few nations have taken the responsibilities to save guard their self interest and the interest of...VIEW DOCUMENT
Rudyard Kipling had an extremely substantial influence on the people's views of the United States' and British Imperialistic philosophies through his writing of "The White Man's Burden." During the late 1800's and early 1900's British Imperialism was on the rise, causing many mixed feelings between politicians and citizens as well. As an offspring of England, the United States began to be following in the footsteps of their mother country despite their animosity, slowly becoming a world power with their new...VIEW DOCUMENT
Scramble for Africa, a phrase used to describe the frenzied claiming of African territory by half a dozen European countries that resulted in nearly all of Africa becoming part of Europe's colonial empires. The Scramble began slowly in the 1870s, reached its peak in the late 1880s and 1890s, and tapered off over the first decade of the 20th century. Between 1885 and 1900, European powers were, at times, racing each other to stake claims in Africa. Most Africans resisted being taken over and ruled by foreigners. Thus, much of the latter part of the Scramble involved European armies using modern...VIEW DOCUMENT

"You furnish the pictures, and I'll furnish the war!" That quote is one of many that are identified with the Spanish-American War. The Spanish-American War in 1898 was a manipulated war by forces of the New York press, imperialistic supporters and independence-minded humanitarians to achieve its goal of pushing America head long into conflict with Spain and inevitably place America on the world stage of imperialism.
To begin with, we are lead to believe that the United States government didn't want to get involved in the Spanish-American War, but were dragged into it due to the "yellow journalism" prevalent at that time. By 1895, after a previous "Tens Years War" from 1868-1878,...VIEW DOCUMENT
