African Imperialism During the late 19th and 20th century, the Europeans such as the Britain’s were trying to take over more land from the Africans to expand their borders. In doing so they also grew its economy and cultures. Since Africa wasn’t modernized or politically secure at the time it was much easier for Europe to take over their land. This made it possible for the Europeans to be able to produce crops. Then soon enough different nations from Europe started to take over most of Africa.
The Era of 1492 through 1750 opened up doors to new worlds for the growing independent and conductive european world. This period was well known for the exceptional discoveries that occurred during it such as the europeans discoveries of the americas and the atlantic slave trade “triangle trade “ both memorable and history changing events in world history .These events focused mainly on the following three regions Western Europe ,Africa , and the Americas. Communication lead to the expansion of the economics of all the following regions . unfortunately they damaged the social structures of the africa while also making way for the new social structures to form in the americas . during the 1492 europe began to flourish in the economy
From 1492C.E. to 1750C.E, the Columbian Exchange had similar interactive and economic effects in the Americas as it did in Europe like new agricultural goods and growth of economic products, but differed in the effects of the Columbian exchange, in terms of the epidemic spread in the Americas. New World crops were spread rapidly by Western European merchants. Corn and potatoes were a big factor in Europe; it marked the introduction of American crops into Europe. Besides those two products, several other foods from the Americas were transported to Europe as well, such as: peppers, maize, tomatoes, beans, and the squash.
It connected Philadelphia with rich farm lands in Lancaster. Because of the success of the turnpike, other states were more inclined to do the same. Cumberland Road was built which connected Maryland to Illinois. Canals impacted the US as well. In 1825 the Eerie Canal was opened starting in Albany by the Hudson River to Buffalo (Great Lakes).
The impact of slavery on these United States of America has had long-lasting and far- reaching effects on the culture of this nation. The notion that one is a product of their past has been like a concrete bolder tied around the necks of the generations, which followed the institution of slavery. An institution formed to encourage the economic enterprise in the Americas at the beginning of an immigration onslaught to these newly formed United States. However, the political environment of era in addition to racism encouraged in British society, which followed the colonist to the new world; encouraged and in many ways fostered division of the people based on color. Moreover, as the institute of slavery was producing great economic wealth for
It proved to be very beneficial to Europe and was practiced for quite some time. Along with the development of mercantilism, migrations increased because of the population boom due to the corn and potatoes. A new social class was developed called the Bourgeoisie. But to work the land and farm it the Europeans needed slaves of which were abducted and bought from Africa after most of the Native Americans that had already been occupying the land were dying off from the foreign
Between 1492 and 1750, Europe was in the process of becoming more centralized, as their monarchy became stronger. Voyages to the new world began to take place and have an impact upon European society. However, these expeditions did not impact the Native Americans very well since they were enslaved and forced to give up their territory. However, these new expeditions took place in other places than America as well. Voyages were sent along the West African coast and helped make a stronger economy for Europe due to more trading opportunities with Africa.
European Imperialism in Africa and Asia European nations followed to establish trade contacts in Africa and Asia. Their influence in the non-Western world increased gradually in the next three centuries. Beginning in 1870, European nations moved rapidly to extend their control over almost all of Africa and in most of Asia. The industrialized nations competed with each other for natural resources and raw materials such as copper, rubber, petroleum, and cotton after the Industrial Revolution spread within Europe. The industrial middle class, who had gained greater influence in the governments in Europe, encouraged imperialist ventures to seize control in Africa and Asia.
It was also an abundant source of raw materials and the Suez Canal could be a beneficial way to transport them. The Imperialism ended up having a positive effect on Africa because the population grew, new ways of transportation and communication were introduced, and Africans became educated therefore they had more opportunities ahead of them. To begin, the African population grew as Imperialism was taking place in their country. The Europeans were far more advanced and knew how to keep a healthy diet, which they showed the African citizens. (www.slideshare.net, Web.)
The rest of Europe quickly joined in the exploitation of the natural resources, and slaughter of the indigenous peoples, of the New World, from the far north of North Americas, to the tip of South America. After the American Revolution (1775-1783), America was able to flex its economic muscle, partially because of cheap African slave labor and the settlement of land it had stolen from Native Americans. The American Industrial Revolution further propelled the West's economic dominance of the rest of the
