From 1500 to 1914, empires began forming all throughout the Eastern and Western hemispheres, all competing for world power, whether it be the economic, land power, or cultural influence. Like many of these empires, the nations of Europe were big advocates of imperialism and world power. The continuity of their use of “European Racism,” and advancement of technology helped them achieve their great power throughout the centuries. While their adaptation of political administration throughout the centuries helped them take over and operate under large native lands, while still having efficient rule. Overall, the continuities and changes in imperial enterprises from 1500 to 1914 led to more advanced and efficient rule among most modern empires.

However, after the war, England felt they could no longer have such uninvolved relations with the colonists and began instituting stricter policies over them. Consequently, the Seven Years War marked a great turning point in colonial relations with England, with changes such as the legislation which led to the increase of British control as well as anti-British sentiment in the colonies.
