According to The Black Man’s Burden, by Edward Morel, “There chances of successfully resisting the Europeans has steadily dwindled with the increasing killing power of modern armies. Therefore, the African is really helpless against the white man because of his master of the military, their large economic power, and their knowledge of conquest.” This shows that Africans were against imperialism nations because they were trying to become independent. When
The New Imperialism in Africa was an expansion on Africa by Europe that was motivated by profit and prestige. One of the most famous Imperialists during the time was Cecil Rhodes. He said that “[Britain] must find new lands from which [it] can easily obtain raw materials and at the same time exploit cheap slave labor that is available from the natives of the colonies.” (Document 3) Along with Rhodes, there were various other imperialists that strongly believed Britain and Europe as a whole was the most powerful force in the world and that therefore they alone had the right to “geopolitical dominance” (Document 5)
The early 13th century is ultimately known for the uprising of two influential civilization in Tropical Africa and Asia. Sultan Iltutmish is credited as the founder of Delhi, while Sundiata is recognized as the founder of Mali. Although the Delhi Sultanate originated in India and the Mali Empire in Western Africa, both empires’ political, social, and economic structures are perceived to be established around a certain idealistic belief. The authoritarian structure of Delhi and Mali’s government system and the rigorous framework of their military were cultivated by adapting early Islamic culture; nevertheless, this commonality shared between the two civilizations resulted in the diversity of Mali’s wealth relying heavily on long distance trade,
Europeans were going to rely on a heavy reliance on military power, size, and strategic tactics to take and maintain control of African colonies. France set out to establish itself in North Africa shortly after 1870, first by establishing a protectorate in Tunisia in 1881 with the signing of the treaty of Bardo. With the French raid of Algeria and defeat of the Tunisian Kroumer tribe, the French looked to gain more territory. Jules Ferry, a French foreign minister, played a crucial part, managing to send a small army of French forces consisting of approximately 36,000 troops to defeat the Kroumer tribe. French armed forces continued their advance and invasion into Tunisia shortly after.
Chinua Achebe said, “When the British came to Ibo land, for instance, at the beginning of the 20th century, and defeated the men in pitched battles in different places, and set up their administrators, the men surrendered. And it was the women who led the first revolt.” With the rise of industrialization, Europe experienced major problems such as poverty and homelessness. This led to an increase in colonization as people sought economic opportunities (Iweriebor, “The Colonization of Africa”). The nineteenth century was a period of profound revolutionary changes in the political geography of Africa, characterized by the demise of old African kingdoms and empires and their reconfiguration into different political entities (Iweriebor, “The Colonization
The Articles had filled a lot of holes in the government system but left many unresolved problems and because of this, the Articles are considered to be a failed government system. After the revolution, America owed millions of borrowed money to other countries. The government had no right to tax the states for money and thus could not come up with the owed money. The Articles of Confederation failed to solve the country 's problem of debt
Although the British have fought wars all around the world they weren’t ready for these new tactics. The Colonists used these tactics very strategically. Guerilla warfare was a crucial tactic that helped the Americans win the war. Guerilla

From the immense amount of population Africa had, making nations turn heads towards cheap labor, other benefits included natural resources and huge amounts of open land. For starters, people who were driven Economically to take part of the Scramble of Africa included: nation government officials, bankers and business companies. Each group of people sought after the exploitation of the African people, their land and natural resources. A clear example demonstrating how Africa was exploited was on the date of 1870-1890, the dates which Europeans spent taking control of Kikuyu land owned by a native community of Africans. An article named “The coming of the Pink Cheeks,” by Chief Kabongo as told to Richard St. Barbe Baker, describes what happened to Chief Kabongo 's people in Kakuyu.
The Niger River was the life-blood of Mali, and was imperative to helping the empire become prosperous and dominant. Mali lay along the upper Niger River and the fertile soil helped Mali to grow, and allowed the people to control trade on the winding body of water. However, Mali’s rise to power began under a ruler named Sundiata. When Sundiata was a child, a despotic ruler conquered Mali, but then later as an adult Sundiata built up an army and won back his country’s independence. In the 1230’s he vanquished nearby kingdoms including Ghana.
Between 300th century and 1400th century, the most powerful African kingdoms had achieved great goals, such as developing a trade system. The empires in Africa had a solid economy which was supported by their trade. Before the Europeans arrived, these empires had hierarchies and roles in society, which helped the trade system flourish. Some achievements Africa accomplished included trade, wealth, and a complex society.
