A great “congress” was held at Berlin in 1878 to help solve the crisis over Russian intervention in the Ottoman empire.


Also there was the question of how to divvy up africa in an orderly manner
Also, there was the question of how to solve the crisis over Russian intervention in the Ottoman empire.divvy up Africa in an orderly manner…

  • Of course, no one asked the native Africans.

  • Over time, “warring” tribes would be placed together

  • Straight lines in Africa and the Middle East clearly indicate “imperial” meddling.


In the treaty of Berlin, Bismarck took nothing…but be aware that the Germans were more than prepared to exert influence in the future.

A European power with holdings on the coast had prior rights

Occupation must include administrators or troops

Each power must give notice to the others of what territories it considered its own

THE REAL SCRAMBLE BEGAN!


The dissolution of the Ottoman Empire made it possible for the European powers to meddle in North Africa—Britain and France, especially.


Britain moved into Egypt in 1882—but they had already bought a substantial amount of shares in the Suez canal in 1874…


Egypt became a british protectorate

Italy tried to conquer Ethiopia, but the Italians were defeated. The Italian prisoners were castrated and sent back home. Italy would not forget this.


At the battle of Adowa, using old guns they didn't know would operate, and a lot of spears, the primitive, ill-armed Ethiopians had humiliated a modern European army. In their childlike manner, they had castrated all prisoners captured in the battle.

Their philosophy was: when they went back home to Italy, they couldn't become fathers of sons who might return to seek vengeance.


FASHODA INCIDENT [Fashoda Incident] , 1898, diplomatic dispute between France and Great Britain. Toward the end of the 19th cent., while Britain was seeking to establish a continuous strip of territory from Cape Town to Cairo, France desired to establish an overland route from the Red Sea to the Atlantic Ocean.


The French backed down—but a wave of hatred swept over France as they realized the British “Bullies” had got their way.


Soon after that, the British got involved in the Boer War—The Germans supported the Boers, while the British were ultimately victorious—we learned about this war earlier.


The Partition of Africa continued---The Congo, controlled by Belgium under King Leopold II, became synonymous with the abuses of Imperialism.


Wild Rubber was in demand form many years….before domestic rubber trees would grown and come into production.






But the relationship was not reciprocal as compared to the other colonies of Australia and New Zealand—who mainly had white settlers. The white peoples were always favored over the colonial peoples..


Many of the upper crust Indians were educated by the British…thus speaking perfect English and learning Liberal Western Ideas. Those ideas included concepts of freedom and liberty for all.




Imperialism highlighted conflicts with Russia and Britain. Russia moved in on the aging Ottoman Empire.


The Kingdom of Persia was loaned money by the British—the Persian Gulf became the “price” for this loan.


Oil became a highly valued commodity around 1900. Persia fell into competing Zones—Iraq, Iran, Kuwait and Afghanistan are all modern nations created out of the ancient state of Persia. This is a contributing factor to the disruption in the Middle East to this day.

The Dowager Empress, called the “Dragon Queen” encouraged revolt against the Westerners.


In China, there was the “Order of Literary Patriotic Harmonious Fists”—but Westerners called them “The Boxers”


A secret society, known as the Harmonious Fists”—but Westerners called them “The Boxers”Fists of Righteous Harmony, attracted thousands of followers. Foreigners called members of this society "Boxers" because they practiced martial arts.

The Boxers also believed that they had a magical power, and that foreign bullets could not harm them. Millions of "spirit soldiers," they said, would soon rise from the dead and join their cause.



The Boxer rebellion was put down, but the Chinese government struggled to continue their Westernization yet suppress Rebellions.
