British colonialism
British Colonialism

  • The British system of colonialism was Mercantilism, the idea that the colonies live only for the sake of the mother country.

  • Mercantilism works by the colonies providing their controller with raw materials, then the Mother country produces good and sells it back to the colonizers.

  • The English rule was intolerant towards the indigenous peoples of the lands they controlled. Natives in lands the British conquered were either eliminated or displaced.

  • Colonies were controlled very directly and strictly by the Monarchy.

  • British colonies were heavily taxed to provide the country itself with profit.

Ottoman colonialism
Ottoman Colonialism

  • The Ottomans were very tolerant of their conquered peoples.

  • They often let their colonies' citizens retain most aspects of their religion and culture.

  • The Ottomans split their colonies into emirs, which are basically indivigual states ruled by separate governors that still adhere to the mandate of the Mother Country.

  • Unification in the empire was important to retaining peace but, ironically the Sultan often kept the rulers of the emirs fighting amongst themselves in order to maintain his own rule.
