During the late 1800s and early 1900s, European imperialism radically changed the boundaries inside the continents of Africa and Asia incorporating them into their developing colonial empire. This was the same scenario for British imperialism in India. Over time, the colony and colonizer’s opinion on imperialism evolves, as both experience the downside and upside of colonialism. Britain, mother country of India, had benefitted very much from their colony and dramatically improved the quality of life in India.

The conquest of Granada proved to be invaluable for Ferdinand and Isabella, and highly signiﬁcant in the short term, granting the Spanish people a new found sense of unity and pride. Not only did the conquest provide the Spanish royals with more lands and titles, but also vast amounts of wealth, prestige, and the brief integration of Catholicism in an Arab culture. This laid the foundations for Spain’s great golden age, with the discovery of the new world being funded by spanish coin, leading to the expansion of the Spanish empire . Religious unity was ﬁnally upon Spain, after the eradication of Jewish and Islamic customs, resulting in a spanish peninsula that solely followed the customs of Rome and the Papacy. Thus Creating the biggest power in Europe, both economically and militarily, and arguably becoming the world’s ﬁrst superpower.
US Imperialism in Latin America Latin America's residence close to the United States made the improvement of relations between the two countries imperative during the beginning of the 20th century. William Jennings Bryan, Secretary of State for Woodrow Wilson, was seen as fairly important to the Imperialism. Although Bryan claimed that he was against imperialistic actions, he was still viewed by the economy as a successor of Imperialism. In 1898, the United States was on its way to war and desire for empire. The edge for war was initiated by the Cuban rebels who were revolting against Spanish control over Latin America.
Puerto Rico was very poor and the Americans were welcomed with the hopes of increased rights and a better economy.

In 1900, congress passed the Foraker Act, which set up a civil government for the Puerto Ricans, and gave them a certain amount of self-government. But most power still belonged to the U.S. through the officials were appointed by the U.S. government. This did not go unnoticed by some of the Puerto Rican natives.

Morey (1901) tells us that Carthage “early acquired dominion over the native races of Africa, the Lydians and the Numidians.” who were native to the region. Forcing many into slavery, the city began to grow. The power and wealth they achieved arose from the vast trading empire they established, trading goods across the known lands spices from the near east, tin from Britain and a number of other commodities. This trade was mainly conducted at sea, so they created a navy unrivalled at the time, one more sophisticated than any other. It also led to a city that was the envy of many, Mark (2011) points out that “The aristocrats lived in palaces, the less affluent in modest but attractive homes”.
