Reasons why Europeans Imperialized other areas: Nationalistic
  • To make their nation more powerful by taking over lands of less advanced people
  • To show their technological superiority over the native peoples(especially militarily)
  • “Social Darwinism”: it was natural for stronger nations to dominate weaker ones

the scramble begins
The “SCRAMBLE” Begins
  • Berlin Conference (1884-1885) -14 European nations (NO AFRICANS) met to lay down rules for division of Africa!
  • They agreed that any European nation could claim land in Africa by notifying other nations of its claims

I contend that we [Britons] are the 1st race in the world, & the more of the world we inhabit, the better it is for the human race…It is our duty to seize every opportunity of acquiring more territory & we should keep this one idea steadily before our eyes that more territory simply means more of the Anglo-Saxon race, more of the best, the most human, most honorable race the world possesses. –

Cecil Rhodes, Confessions of Faith, 1877
