2Notes on Expansionism--imperialism IMPERIALISM- means one country’s domination of the political, economic, and social life of another country.Chief goals of Western Empires wereExploit the natural resources of these landsOpen up new markets for their own manufactured goods.Justification: bringing the blessings of western civilizations to their colonial subjects.
3Four Reasons for imperialism Political Rivalries- Countries started to scramble for new territories and resources.Needed to get this new land before others grabbed it up.New Markets -The Industrial Revolution led to the desire for new markets for their materials and more raw resources were needed to feed the growth.Africa-rubber, copper, and goldIndia-cotton and jute.Also, bananas, oranges, melons, and other exotic fruits made their way to European markets.
43. New Opportunities- Great Britain, France, and Germany needed loyal citizens from their countries to run the newly acquired territories.Become richPolitical opportunitiesOwn your own land4. “Civilizing” Mission- Religious and humanitarian issues inspired many individuals to leave their homes for distant lands.Catholic and Protestant missionaries set out to civilize and convert Africans and Indians.Social Darwinism was a theory of cultural superiority. Social Darwinists believed that white Europeans were the “fittest” people in the world and that they had a duty to spread Western ideas to “backward” peoples.
5Famous poem by Rudyard Kipling—“The White Man’s Burden”—it was addressed to the U.S. to send their sons to civilize the rest of the world—the half –devil and half child of different cultures.
6Forms of Imperialism-Colony – a territory that an imperial power ruled directly through colonial officials.Protectorate- had its own government, but its policies were guided by a foreign power.Sphere of influence- a region in which the imperial power had exclusive investment or trading rights.
74 Motivations for New Imperialism Economic *main motivation* - new markets, raw resourcesDesire for political powerNew Opportunities – colonize, explore, richesSense of racial superiority; “White Man’s Burden” moral responsibility to civilize primitive people.Asia & Africa – source of raw materials and a market for western manufactured goods.Europeans NEEDED- Oil, Tin and Rubber to fuel European industries.
8Indirect Rule- colonial government in which local rulers are allowed to maintain their positions of authority and status.Benefits-Easier to gain access to the region’s natural resourcesLowered the cost of government because fewer officials had to be trained.Had less effect on local culture.If local elites resisted foreign conquest then:
9Direct Rule- Colonial government in which local elites are REMOVED from power and replaced by a new set of officials brought from the mother country.Colonial powers did not want their colonists to develop their own industries.Colonial policy stressed the export of raw materials.Peasants worked for poverty level wages to keep the owner’s profits high.Government kept taxes high yet wages low.Did have some benefits:Helped to create an entrepreneurial class in rural areas. In Dutch East Indies small growers of rubber, palm oil, coffee, tea and spices began to share in the profits of the colonial enterprise. Most profits went back to colonial mother country.Colonial governments built railroads, highways and other structures that could benefit native people as well as colonies.
