This was accomplished through the Columbian Exchange, which is the network of migration and trade within the Atlantic Ocean. Next, European empires in the Americas as well as Russian, Chinese, Mughal, and Ottoman empires are different in their development because Europe had a greater impact on the native peoples that they integrated into their growing empires. When the Europeans arrived in the Americas, they brought a very tiny weapon with them. They brought disease. Small pox, measles, and malaria and just a few of the old world diseases that devastated native populations.
After losing American Colonies, British imperialist started looking for opportunities in the Far East and India showed great potential. The British entered India as traders with the primary objective to earn profits by carrying on with trade in India. In the early 1800’s the British imperialists started to colonise India for various reasons such as natural resources and land. The colonisation took place during the industrial revolution and this meant cheap labour from people. British-India had two states those under rule of Queen Monarch of Great Britain and the other under rule by the Indian prince who followed British rules.
Initially, European countries were looking for a water passage to China so they would be able to trade for their goods. Spain, who lead the charge, landed in Central and South America, captured gold and silver. From this the Spain were able to grow their army and hence, their political power. Next in line were the France who landed in North America and discovered the land to be ripe with animal pelts which brought great wealth to the French. The Dutch had found the same success as the France.
However when they didn 't pay their debt to British banks, so the British took over the canal.

The Ming Tombs and The Qing Tombs built by ancient Chinese emperors are an assemblage of imperial mausoleums. The Ming Tombs are located in China, in both Nanjing and Beijing. Most of the tombs are located specifically in Changping District of Bejing. This location was chosen by the third emperor of the Ming dynasty, the Yongle Emperor, who based his choice on the principles of Geomancy or also known as Feng Shui, which is a traditional Chinese philosophical system that has the intention of harmonizing everyone with the environment. The Ming Tombs, which is also commonly known as The Thirteen Tombs of the Ming Dynasty uses a common road that leads into the complex.
The religion of Islam was influenced in the early 600s, trading was their way of spreading their ideas and inventions to be learned. The Islamic culture began to spread from Persia in the east to southern west Europe and the north of Africa. The Islamic culture influenced and impacted Europe in numerous ways, affecting such varied areas as medicine, literature, and technology. All these three categories show the influence and impact of Islam on Europe.

This system was founded by The Dravidians who arose in the Harappan area at around 2500 BC. This area is now known as northeastern Afghanistan. They had a very commercial civilization, full of trade transactions with many other regions, therefore they felt the need of inventing their own writing language as a method of communication. Their script of writing is so unique to the point that it can be differentiated even if it was in between a thousand other scripts. In about 1600 BC, the Chinese culture came up with another form of pictographic writing system, which happened to be the last system which uses pictographic calligraphy in the early cultures and civilizations.
Indirect colonialism implies that ‘native chiefs are constituted as an integral part of the machinery of the administration’. However, the ‘chief himself must understand that he has no right to place and power unless he renders his proper service to the state’. In other words, indirect colonialism allows pre-colonial leaders to keep political and legal power over their subject, while demanding them to pay taxes to the colonial administration. By exploring the political, economical and social life of India’s and Africa’s populations, this essay will argue that it is only partially accurate to label the governance system of British Imperialism in the 19th and 20th ‘indirect’. To begin with, only a few British people were settled in India.
Starting in the Mid-15th century, many European nations sent out explorers in order to find new sea routes, as well as new territories. That’s how Christopher Columbus stumbled upon the West Indies and therefore indirectly opened up the New World for others to explore. On the quest to create more wealth for their own nation through mercantilist policies, Europeans, as well as different religious groups, colonized the New World one by one. In the process of colonizing, when the European nations realized they needed a workforce to support the production of their cash crops, they brought over African slaves as part of the Columbian exchange which in turn introduced a solution - and a new problem. For the mercantilist European nations, their colonies were important as they produced raw materials - grain, sugar, or tobacco - for the nation, which otherwise they would have to import.
The British people possessed many ambitious motives for their long journey to inhabit the new world, such as trade. The British men gathered full control of the trading center present in the Americas, and created the Navigation Acts to help aid them in their tactics to take control over all trade within the Americas. The Navigation Acts were passed under a mercantilist system, and was used to regulate trade in a way that only benefitted the British economy. These acts restricted trade between England and its colonies to English or colonial ships, required certain colonial goods to pass through England before export, provided subsidies for the production of certain raw goods in the colonies, and banned colonial competition in large-scale manufacturing. This lowered the competition in the trading world for the British and caused the British to have a major surge in power, that greatly attributed to the growth of their rising empire.
Claudia Gorski 11 December, 2016 Mrs. Campara Honors World Studies How did Europe use slaves through The Triangular Trade to gain power? During the Age of Exploration which lasted from 1400 to 1600, the world became global. There was more desire for resources and power. It was a time where Europeans saw their race as superior, slavery was based on race, and Europeans found the American continent where they started growing crops for profit and power. Europe used slaves through The Triangular Trade to gain power by making the slaves work on plantations, loading the exotic plantation products that slaves worked on in the ships empty holds and shipped to Europe to be sold, and supplying Africans to plantations in the Western Hemisphere until it was made illegal.
In 1518, the slave trade grow greatly because of the trade with America. This event became a part of the triangle trade and a new world economy. Triangle trade connected Europe, Africa, Asia and America. Europe would export cloth, guns, and utensils to Africa, then Africa would export slaves to America and sold. America then would sell tobacco and sugar to Europe were they would be sold at markets.
The spread of Islam and China greatly contributed to world development during the 1500’s. Christendom in Europe enhanced Christianity throughout the Byzantine Empire. The European forces of Christendom established new colonies, but Muslims easily invaded them. The European’s technological advancements were inferior to Chinese and Islam officials. European civilizations expanded trade routes throughout China and Islam.
