Social Reform Movements o o o

o Imperialism

Imperialism in Africa Helpful Technology: Maxim gun, quinine (anti-malaria drug), steam engine, telegraph Africa Before Imperialism o o o o o Hundreds of ethnic and linguistic groups Religiously diverse Politically diverse: empires to city-states to villages As late as 1800, Europeans only controlled 10% Europe traveled to interior hindered: no navigable rivers Western contact: explorers, missionaries

Nations Compete for Overseas Empires o

Congo: David Livingston went missing and Henry Stanley looked for him Stanley gave Leopold of Belgium personal control of land Imperialism: take over of a country by a stronger nation with the intent of dominating the political, economic, and social life Economic: new markets and materials, competition Political: nationalism Social: technology led to racism and Social Darwinism (survival of the fittest applied to social change) Motives of Imperialism

Imperialism in Asia Shift to Land Empire in Asia o o Hesitation to take colonies; expensive to administer men-on-the-spot: company men had a lot of control locally because governments so far away, communication limited o Prototype: Dutch Advance on Java o Dutch gradually gained monopoly on spices Dutch intervened on wars of succession Similar patterns as Java Sepoys: Indian troops who worked for British East India Co. Used a bullet that had a paper opening (which was glued with animal fat) that needed to be opened with teeth; animal fat led to uprisings Indian princes tried to use Britons to gain power, eventually Britons gained and became rivals o British Raj: British politics established in India Britons power and land grew as Mughals declined and regional powers fought Indian handicaps in fighting British advances: no sense of national unity, locals severed in British army (better uniforms, weapons, pay) Consolidation of British Rule
