During the age of exploration France was one of the biggest countries to imperialize in the 1800. France desired control of some Indochina for money, resources and labour. France unfortunately cared less about the lives that where spent and more about the resources. For this reason the native people of Indochina suffered greatly at the hands of French imperialism.
When travelling through Vietnam nowadays, one could immediately notice that the country was occupied by the French. The architecture has French influences, the language contains French words and many hospitals and universities are still named after famous French people. The colonization and decolonization have had a huge impact on Vietnam. From 1887 until 1956, Vietnam was part of French Indochina (Ziltener & Künzler, 2013 p. 293). French Indochina belonged to the French colonial empire, being a federation of three Vietnamese regions, Laos, Cambodia and Guangzhouwan.
The French Revolution was a drastic time for the people of France. In 1789, the majority of people were living in poverty and dealing with terrible conditions. People were split into three estates: the first, second, and third, the first being the wealthiest. Political, economic, and social situations were what contributed to people’s desire for change. The three main, or biggest causes of the French Revolution, were taxes, inequality, and lack of reform.
“History is, after all, something that happened to people. No 'force ' whether economic or political can act except as it acts through the minds and bodies of human beings” (Priscilla Smith Robertson, Revolutions of 1848: A Social History). The Revolution of 1848 was a series of revolts against European monarchs causing a ripple effect throughout Europe. The ripples affected France, Italy, and Germany.
Between being colonized by the Chinese or by the French, Vietnam has throughout its history been either dominated directly by or at least influenced politically by a foreign power. The French began directly ruling over Vietnam in 1887 after winning a series of wars in the name of extracting coal, rubber, rice, and rare minerals. However, the birthplace of the Enlightenment and resulting French Revolution provided little in return, intentionally leaving Vietnam to be grossly illiterate, lacking any modern industry, and dependent upon France. In opposition to the exploitation, the Dong Du, a Vietnamese independence movement inspired by Japan's anticolonial success against Russia in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905, grew within a community
The United States had for years been improving and growing rapidly. Away from the other world powers in Europe, they were able to avoid their conflicts for a long time, but that changed. America got involved in World War One and it affected some of their advancements. U.S imperialism was able to thrive in WWI, with America using the power to expand their empire. American progressivism however, fell between the cracks and disappeared for a long while during and after the war.
The Most Successful Revolution From the beginning of the island Saint Domingue, France was doomed to losing this money making island. Overworking the Haitian people for the want to dominate the economic market lead to the fall of Saint Domingue and the rise of Haiti. The long fight for independence lasted from 1791 to 1804 and was led by a man named Toussaint Louverture. He is vital to the Haitian revolution, due to him bringing unity to the Haitian people, and emancipating all slaves (Haitian Revolution... History). This extremely successful revolution brought inspiration to many other Latin American Revolutions.
Even though it has been over sixty years since Myanmar was imperialized, remnants of the outcome of imperialism can still be well observed. The language, the clothing, the infrastructures all have been affected by imperialism. These effects may deceive people into thinking that imperialism was all sunshine and rainbows but in reality, imperialism brutally destroyed the different aspects of a country. Imperialism impacted societies in countless negative ways. It led to slave trade which then led to social discrimination around the world.
The French and American revolutions were two very important events in history that have similarities and differences in economic, military, financial and political terms. This essay will discuss how these aspects contributed to the unrests, and how they vary for either case. A cause that seems to occur in both revolutions is the problem of taxation, which is a financial problem. In the French Revolution, the Third Estate was the only class that payed the national tax.
The industrial revolution of the 17th and 18th century provided the economic and technological spur that many European countries and America lacked. As a result of the industrial revolution, the world trade markets saw a tremendous increase, with materials being transported between the nations at a frantic rate. The profits soared while the need for raw materials had never been that high, as it was during those times. That forced many of the industrialized European countries to rethink of new approaches to obtain the valuable materials. The solution came as a form of colonizing the areas that raw materials found abundantly.
Imperialism actually means ‘to command land’ Around 600,000 people died from all of these different events No person or nation likes to be controlled, and that is what America was doing We took away people’s freedom Many people were shipped to America and used as slaves without their consent
