Not only did they westernized their education with modern sciences and modern life, but they also made a frame for the to establish laws and courts of justice (Document3). The British built a strong and efficient administration ran the government for the Indians, deciding that they would not be able to run their government properly, became a problem later for India. Imperialism may have been a positive force for India in many ways, but the economic gain benefitted
Research Paper 4 Question: How did imperialism help and eventually hurt powers in Europe? Imperialism helped European powers by giving confidence to the European government. It hurt them by bringing conflict with the British and china causing the Opium war, also a major part of European imperialism was the colonization of Africa and India... The Europeans made a big name for themselves during the late 1800s, early 1900s, they ran through countries like Africa for the fact that they could. They caused a lot of hatred towards them that evolved into more… Along with expanses, there came abusive power from the European countries.
Both the Han Chinese and the Romans made use of technology, and the ways the empires were affected and the way applied the technologies were of a vast spectrum. These societies valued innovation, and especially the Han would honour those culturally significant by attributing the creation of technologies commonly used under the Han to these culturally relevant figures. The effect of central-government and other forms of management on these technologies and their uses had both positive and negative effects. For the Han, a state-induced monopoly had a vastly harmful effect, and if the government had not interfered then the progress of the tools would not have been interrupted. The governing authorities again like to use culturally significant figures in the tales of innovation and invention and discovery.
The British introduced a parliamentary system of government to the Indians. As stated in document 3 by Romesh Dutt, “Englishman has given the people of India the greatest human blessing – peace.” They have introduced Western Education. This has brought an ancient and civilized nation in touch with modern thought, modern sciences, and modern life. This means that the British have positively affected India because they brought over their knowledge and educated the natives, which results in more skilled workers. They also modernized India with their economic system of Mercantilism, and their parliamentary form of government.
Second, the military of European was more powerful than the Native American’s. When the Europeans first step on the America, the Native Americans had been caught by modern weapons, to become the slaves, worked for the Europeans. The third reason is that the Europeans
I will be arguing that the achievement of the Attlee Government were remarkable. The sources which I’ll be using show the impact that the Attlee Government had on Britain. From my own knowledge and also the sources, I can show that the achievements of Attlee Government were remarkable as it helped the people of Britain live much better lives. On the contrary it can also show that the achievements weren’t remarkable as it had created many problems for the country. Source 4 is suggesting that since the Attlee government had come into power sorted out many problems in Britain.
These events caused what appears to be a strengthened Anglo-American relationship, and made it appear as ‘peaceful and harmonious’ however, there are other factors which must be considered by historians in order to solve this question. Speaking in terms of economics, it is likely that the relationship between the colonies and the mother country can be described as ‘peaceful and harmonious.’ Leading up to 1763, Britain had started to fully accelerate in the industrial revolution. This of course meant that Britain needed to Import lots of raw materials, and export a high quantity of manufactured goods. This was good for the American colonies, as it had a huge amount of raw material, and needed more manufactured goods, almost creating a perfect trade scenario between it and the mother country. In addition to this, the idea of mercantilism meant that American trade was protected by Britain, and this was advantageous as Britain was one of the strongest economic powers in the world at the time.
For this same reason the public opinion is divided with some people recognizing more negatives outweighing the positives while some suggest the opposite. Many people see the negative impact as being more significant because British rule in India resulted in impoverished, poor people and food shortages in India. Many people see the positive impact as being more significant because Britain brought infrastructure and technology to the Indian people. Because these viewpoints can both be supported, there is a great complexity to this issue. The position that should be taken on this issue is that British rule in India was a positive impact on the Indian people to a small extent.
One man who argued that slavery was inefficient was Scottish philosopher Adam Smith. He argues that, “slavery was an economically inefficient form of labor (Collins 252).” The changing European economy, brought about by industrialization and urbanization, particularly in England, relentlessly transformed the terms of trade on the eastern and western African coasts throughout the nineteenth century. Europe started to trade for tropical products like animal hides, palm oil, cloves, and gum Arabic, rather than just
Imperialism is the act of an empire taking rule over foreign countries. Imperialism had both positive and negative effects on India. During the 1700’s the British East India Company took advantage of other countries’ natural resources such as India’s (India: British East India Company). The company also wanted to control countries’ markets which they could do through imperialism. The British East India Company had successfully imperialized India by taking advantage of India’s political rivalries at the time, pushing the religious differences in India to create further religious tensions, and taking over little parts of India at a time.
