(S7.E4.) Chpt 2: The High Tide of Imperialism

The High Tide of Imperialism

This podcast episode focuses on the competition among the Europeans and the U.S. to extend their economic desires through expanding colonies around the world. Part of the justification was to gain needed raw resources to fuel the Industrial Revolution, partly to gain new markets to sell goods, opportunities to share the best of their culture and encourage others to adopt them, and finally, to complete among the nations due to nationalistic desires. This chapter serves as a bridge between the Industrial Revolution in chapter one and World War One in chapter four.
