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.

Scholars call this period of analytical growth the Enlightenment because “mankind was emerging from centuries of ignorance into a new age enlightened by reason, science, and respect for humanity” (University of West Georgia). In the late 18th century, the French Revolution, a war between the French government and Bourgeoisie, occurred because citizens sought societal improvements.
