Scramble for Africa. What’s imperialism again? What’s an empire?. Old Imperialism. When did European imperialism begin? Old Imperialism-European colonization from 15 th to early 19 th Cs. New Imperialism.
FYI: This is Shaka Zulu, who built a huge kingdom in what is today South Africa that later battled Europeans
Quinine (treated malaria)-Actually super important!
1) Interest-Explorers brought tales
Dr. Livingstone, I presume?
FYI, no need to write down: Congolese people, and sometimes their family members, had hands chopped off if they failed to meet rubber collection quotas
Poorly drawn borders (and Europeans’ different treatment of different ethnic groups) helped create conflicts that often led to civil war after independence (we’ll learn about these later)
