They supported Britain by banning dye and cloth from India for the next 200 years. Their imperialization affected India in such a harsh way, as their businesses were taken away from them, leaving them with higher unemployment rates. This resulted in deindustrialization, which crippled India’s economic, political, social structure’s, self sufficiency and their industry. When European empires like Britain colonized India, it transformed their way of living, but as they went to colonize other area it also transformed other cultural groups such as the
Today I will be talking about how British imperialism effected India in different ways. India became really valuable to the British when the railroad was build there. The British used the railroad to transport goods and raw product. Nearly all the materials used in manufacturing were produced on plantations, including tea, cotton, opium and coffee. In particular, the British would ship opium to China in exchange for tea that was sold in England.
The Opium Wars came from China 's attempts to suppress the trade and consumption f Opium. The first war took place from 1839 to 1842 and the second war was from 1856 to 1860. The Opium wars marked a new beginning in terms of China’s relationship with the west. Regular trade had been going on with the British since the arrival of the Portuguese in the 1600’s. As European economic power rose, Chines goods such as silk, porcelain and tea became highly sought after.
The Sugar Act, also known as the American Revenue Act or the American Duties Act, was one of the laws that led to anger, dislike, disagreement, and eventually revolution in Colonial America. Another effect was an increase in smuggling and crime in the colonies. The colonists did not want to pay the outrageous taxes so they looked for ways not to have to pay. A third effect was the colonists decided to stop buying luxury products from Great Britain and looked to local manufacturers for their products. They did this to avoid paying the high
A. Explain the reasons for English Colonization by doing the Following: A1. Discuss the political motivations for English Imperialism. The main political motivation for English Imperialism was due to the rivalries with its European Counterparts. Initially, European countries were looking for a water passage to China so they would be able to trade for their goods.
Body Paragraph #2: Reason #2 and Evidence Supporting Sentences: Using the structure: “Evidence, Elaborate, Explain, Examples” Cite from any 2 documents and explain why this evidence shows that the results of the Crusades were more positive or negative. Introduction Sentence: The Crusades were not only just fighting, they also had goals and trade routes. One of the trade routes traded sugar, cotton, rice, and muslim, which were borrowed from Arabie. Document 8 states that Although the Crusades failed the Holy Land, they had a lasting outcome on the way the Europeans lived. This is (important/interesting/relevant) because When the Crusaders returned they Europe they had brought back spices, sugar, and silk; many nobles and merchants enjoyed the new products and wanted more of them Document 2 states that Merchants in Venice and other northern Italian cities built large fleets to carry crusaders to the Holy Land.
Several factors prompted this decline such as: several economic problems, the rise of other trade routes, the European hunger for expansion, and weakness in the Ottoman government Furthermore, the Ottoman Empire was both politically and militarily strong, yet, it was too traditional and could not keep up with worldwide changes and modernity through time. Europe and the West were rapidly moving forward innovatively while the Ottomans stayed in their place for too long. All these problems led to the empire being less centralized in Europe. Simply, the Great Powers of Europe took advantage of this situation and allied to completely end the rule of Ottomans. To further affect the empire, European powers chose an Ottoman strength and turned it into a weak point.
Great Britain went into debt after the French and Indian war causing them to have to find some way to make more revenue. In order to try to climb out of debt, Britain started to enforce new taxations and regulation such as the sugar, currency, and stamp act and the internal and external taxes (Brinkley, 112-113). With the taxations placed on the colonists there was a new found argument of “taxation without representation.” That was one of the main arguments for breaking away the Great Britain. Without that argument, the argument of the colonists separating from Great Britain might not have ever occurred. Another reason the French and Indian war helped start the oncoming American Revolution was all of the boycotts as a result of Britain trying to increase its revenue from the colonists and crawl out of debt.
The early Americans were pushed to seek liberty through a revolution because of the constant mistreatment caused by the British, unfair taxation and lack of governmental representation. As the population of the thirteen British colonies in America grew, colonial settlements expanded westward. This expansion caused many conflicts between the British colonists, other European colonists and Native Americans. After the French and Indian war, the British king along with Parliament had thought it best to tighten their control on their colonies in America. Once Britain control became more prevalent in America, so did the desire for revolution.
Even though the Dutch and the Portuguese first saw it as a great trading post, the French and the British saw this as an opportunity to expand their land and a great economic opportunity with the trade of raw materials and new consumers. By 1767, after the French were defeated, the British begun to colonize all of India through direct and indirect colonialism. The East India Company controlled the country since 1600. As it gradually extended their power it had no choice but to make deals with local princes in areas to make trade profitable. These concessions are a great example for indirect rule.
This essay focuses on the appropriate action of the colonists in response to taxation imposed by the British crown. During the American Revolution, a series of laws were approved during 1763 to 1775 to control trade. Not only did the legislation caused a lot of chaos between the American colonists and the British government, but also there were certain events that led up to taxation. The occurrences were the British crown views on the taxation, and the reaction of the colonies in response to the taxation that was imposed by the British Government. It is clear that in 1760 King George the III of England needed to find a Prime Minister that he could rely on to find a solution to handle the debt accrued during the seven year war.
Then, the king heavily taxed us for buying these goods. Also, the British could search any ship they wanted, so they didn’t let us receive sugar from other countries. The Stamp Act also was very unfair. This was when England made the colonists only buy paper with the English stamp on it. Every paper product had to be made out of it, and this special paper had a heavy tax on it.
2. There were many factors that led to the English colonization, personally I believe the economic outweighed the religious. The main religious factor involved was Protestant Christianity, and the forcing of the beliefs on both the English and the Native Americans. The English Puritans were beginning to lose freedoms at home, thus they fled. Along with the religious factors were the long list of economic factors.
The Seven Year 's War was a huge war involving a lot of countries, such as France, Britain, Spain, Sweden and many more . This paragraph is going to be about some of the conflicts that occurred during this event. Firstly, Due to the fact that the British were establishing settlements, the French attacked the British and burnt their homes down. Next, there were rising tensions in North America, because of the French and British wanting to control over North America 's resources for trade purposes. Thirdly, based on a economy system called mercantilism, spices and tea from India and sugar from the West indies were imported to North America.
A way for tobacco to reach other nations was through travellers and through colonization. Travellers were a main source for people and colonies to get a taste of global products. Not just contained to tobacco but even sugar, or spices, and silk. Travellers were the bridge between nations. Portugal is an example of this movement of tobacco to other nations.
