This effect was economically positive because the British created new goods and crops that were available for the natives to buy. If Africans had the right to certain goods, then that meant there was more equality as well. According to Document #2, written by Dadabhai Naoroji, an Indian leader and writer, in Bombay, India in 1871. He made this document to explain the advantages and disadvantages of the imperialism to the British government and the natives as well. He gives economic reasons to back up his facts about what is good or harmful for the area he lives in.
The driving force behind European imperialism in Africa is resources. Africa provided resources that the European countries desperately needed. You see, there was competition in Africa among the European countries, technology development increased, and power gain. These reasons may sound complicated, but it’s actually quite simple each reason
In the late 19th century, European tribes began to colonize Africa. They took advantage of the large amount of land and natural resources that Africa had. While they took a lot from this continent, they also attempted to bring things to it. They brought religion and attempted to convert Africans and change their core beliefs. The Europeans believed that they could change this new land to be more like Europe, because they believed Europe was the superior country.
The Europeans desire to imperialize Africa was driven by their perception of god, gold, and glory. The imperialism in Africa was triggered due to the abundance of natural resources discovered in Africa, the Europeans desire to spread their culture that they believed was
Even though imperialism has its benefits, its cons far outweigh the pros. It brought industrialization and truly revolutionized countries, but at a great cose. Slavery ran rampant in Africa, while native cultures were ignored and ridiculed. The mother country mainly reaped as many benefits as its colonies could provide, while the local population had to undergo a lot of suffering. By the 20th century, many countries had sought out independence, which some managed to achieve.
“Imperialism is a policy of extending a country's power and influence through diplomacy or military force” Dictionary Definition of Imperialism. In 1750 - 1900, European countries wanted to build empires all over the world; they wanted to provide materials for industrialization. Even though European countries, like France, Great Britain and Portugal, had very few establishments in Africa, they were constantly trading with them. Later, as Europeans tried conquer African land, native people became frustrated and upset; in response to imperialism. As Europeans states industrialized, they wanted to expand overseas and establish colonies in Africa.
Sugar was produced by the masses, but it cost thousands of human lives. Overall, although both colonies benefited and profited from slavery, the numbers and the demand in Meso-America greatly surpassed those from North America’s, and resulted in slave trade being banned much later in those
Document C This document represents the many discoveries and inventions that helped Europeans take over Africa. The most important invention on this document is the discovery of quinine from cinchona tree bark. This is because, as the document says, this was used as a treatment for the disease malaria, which prevented much of the population from developing this deadly disease. Also, the document states that this discovery was made in 1820, near the beginning and middle of the war, and this therefore increased their man-power in the war effort, giving them an advantage that allowed them to colonize Africa. At least two patterns I see or two things that I notice are that two of the inventions are guns, which means that in this time, guns were
Slavery was a big part of European history. African slave trade had many causes and effects in the Atlantic world. The main cause of the African slave trade is cheap labor was needed for new settlements in the Americas. The new settlers in the Americas planned on using the natives for their work, but when many of them died because of European diseases brought with them they had to find another source of labor. They turned to the Africans and saw them as the right people for the labor they needed because of the numerous advantages they could offer to the new lands.
Another things that made African states not to benefit most in the trade is that, they export raw material or minerals because they lack means to process those raw material into finished goods and services. Therefore, those raw materials that are being exported, the African states import them back as manufactured and finished goods and they import them at higher cost compared to the profit they received when exporting
Southern plantations farms mainly made tobacco crops in Virginia, these farms used Africans as the main source of labor in the 1600s. The North thought that using slaves for the plantation owners benefits was not right and they believed Africans had a right to be free citizens. This difference in opinion caused a big issue between the North and the South, this mainly effected the South because Southern farmers relied on cotton plantations and slavery to make money. Cotton began to pick up in popularity in the US because it was so common, but it was not that easy to collect. The South used slavery to make clothes out of cotton before the civil war and relied on slaves for trading.
