European nations ruled smaller countries, called colonies, and everyone competed with one another to get more colonies. The purpose of imperialism was and is to build up national wealth and influence by owing colonies. Both britain and France had a lot of colonies in Asia and Africa. In the 1880 and 1990, germany and Italy had decided that they wanted a colonial empire too. This global Competition for land caused a lot of conflicts and confrontations in many places.
In the First World War, alliances, The Black hand Society, and Princip were the most instrumental in causing the war. The alliances the European countries had with each other was an outstanding reason of cause of the war. After Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, Russia immediately sided with Serbia and Germany with Austria-Hungary. Further into the war more countries got involved because of the alliances, these countries include, Canada, Britain, France, and Belgium. These alliances turned a feud between two countries into a world war.
The history of what we call racism which is the discrimination of other groups on the basis of their different descent begins in the Early Modern Period. This worldwide issue has caused countless problems so it is imperative they we analyze this in order to better understand it. We will look at the origins
How did the Manifest Destiny affect the lives and culture of native americans during the 1800’s? Manifest Destiny was devastating for the cultures of the majority of Native Americans tribes and even ended tribes completely. Manifest destiny was the idea that the United State would continue to expand in North America and that it “was God’s will”, that they would gain more power and and. This however affected native americans heavily because as the United States became aggressive and took more land after wars that occurred in that time period.Events such as the Trail of Tears, and the First Seminole War, and other events similar greatly affected the native
The four main causes of World War I, imperialism, nationalism, militarism, and alliances, in my opinion, the one that takes the most blame for the war is alliances. The reason why is because it is what got most of the world involved. When the Archduke was assassinated on June 28, 1914, it started the war. The allies of the sides fight with each other which were the Central Powers and the Allies. Then because some of the allies support imperialism, they compete for colonies and an example of this is France and Germany both wanting colonies in Asia as well as Africa.
What is now seen today as blatant racism was common though during the late 19th century. Much of the obvious segregation was due to the boom in scientific discoveries, which gave white Europeans supposed evidence to discriminate against other races, typically groups of people they were already biased against. Specifically, Darwinism and the term “survival of the fittest” gave rise to detrimental ideas of differences between races. The new discoveries in the field of genetics led the population into a world of misguided superiority. These scientific revelations paved the road to racism, which can easily be seen in works of the time, such as Joseph Conrad’s questionable novel, Heart of Darkness.
The prime difficulty during this time was not only the constant struggles between the gap of the rich and the poor, but also the extreme fights towards power and wealth. In 1873 Mark Twain and Charles Dudley Warner wrote a novel which was based on the satirization of the nations political corruption during post-Civil War. Mark and Charles then named the novel “The Gilded Age” Which is now the name of that specific era. Their inspiration for the name “Gilded Age” came from the procedure of applying gold leaf to stone, wood, or any substance that didn't have much value to it in order make it look more deluxe or elegant like. Twain and Warner felt that the name symbolized their idea of the late 19th century to be only golden on the surface, but when one would dig
At the end of WWII, many European countries had political and economic damages because of the invasion of Germany. This ruthless war affected the Europeans and made them suffer from several problems, for example, inflation, famines, and weak governments and many of them thought that they would never recover from such a massive blow. However, the countries started trying to restore their power and glory again and during this period, a man called Charles de Gaulle who was born in 1890 in Lille became the ruler of France and managed to envision it to become recognized as an effective power. This essay is about de Gaulle’s life mentioning his policy and his effect on the world. The beginning will be about his early life, then his role in WWI and WWII, after that his achievements during his presidency.
Especially, when white people arrived in America they participated in the inhuman treatment of Africans and other minority groups. Culture appropriation is a product of and reinforces systemic racism, white privilege, and internalized racism and this is because colonization established European dominance, which is why we live in a society where we continue to live in the success of colonization that gave white people too much power over people of
Introduction West Africa is an United Nations subregion that includes eighteen states located in the westernmost part of the African continent. Up to the end of World War II, the region was under the colonialist influence of Europe, specifically France, and the newfound independence left many states suffering from severe political instability, leaving the doors open for a series of brutal conflicts such as the Nigerian civil war, two Liberian civil wars, or the Sierra Leone civil war. Extreme levels of poverty and interests, both local and foreign, in resources of the region (such as the globally renowned Sierra Leone diamond mines) are all factors that contributed to the violence that has raged across the region in the last decades. The constant

Europe is conquering many lands and believing it has the right to do whatever it pleases its own nation even though it 's harming and destroying other nations. Europe is the nation that caused much destruction to other nations especially countries such as Spain, England, France, Portugal, and the Netherlands. The impact that Europeans had upon the Africans and Native American 's led to a negative impact on the people and dramatically affected their lives.

Each of the countries of Europe had different ways of conquering these nations, some through slavery, conquering their lands, and even by
The battle of Lexington and Concord, a very famous battle in history, but why. Why is this event so important to are history that the story of its legacy gets passed on from generation to generation? In the 1700s The British finally won the French and Indian war at an extremely large expense. The British started to tax the new world for all that they had lost and blamed them for some of their expenses. The Boston Tea Party, Sugar Act, Tea Act, and Stamp Act all helped to inflame each side in this and help each side to grow hatred for eachother.
