  1. 1. World History Chapter 12 & 13The New Imperialism (1800–1914),including the Spanish- American War
  2. 2. One of severaljournalists inSouth Africa,British writerRudyard Kipling(bottom right)consideredimperialism to bebeneficial toAfricans.
  3. 3. A Market for Goods A driving force behind imperialism was the desire for access to newmarkets in which to sell goods. This British propaganda poster boasts that Africa wouldbecome a gold mine for British-made products. Britain’s sense of national pride andaggressive foreign policy during this period came to be known as jingoism.What does this poster show about the British attitude toward Africa?

  4. 4. Chapter 12: The New Imperialism (1800–1914)Section 1: Building Overseas EmpiresSection 2: The Partition of AfricaSection 3: European Challenges to the Muslim WorldSection 4: The British Take Over IndiaSection 5: China and the New Imperialism
  5. 5. ImperialismImperialism= One country’s domination of the political,economic, and social life of another country Imperialism in the 1800’s resulted from 3 key factors:1. Nationalism prompted rival European nations to build empires in their competitive quests for power.2. The Industrial Revolution created a tremendous demand for raw materials and expanded markets, which prompted industrialized nations to seek new territories.3. Both religious fervor and feelings of racial and cultural superiority inspired Europeans to impose their cultures on distant lands.
  6. 6. Political Rivalries In the mid-1800’s European countries saw themselves as actors on the world stage, and each country wanted to play a starring role.The key players were: Austria-Hungary, England, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, and the OttomanEmpire/Turkey. Great Britain France Belgium Italy Holland Spain Portugal
  7. 7. Desire for New Markets• Factories ranging from The United States to Europe consumed raw materials and churned out thousands of manufactured goods.• The Colonies provided new markets for the finished products of the Industrial Revolution such as Tools, Weapons, and Clothing. India Southeast Asia Africa • Rubber • Cotton • Tin • Copper • Jute • Spices • Gold • Opium • Exotic • Diamonds stuff
  8. 8. Seeking New Opportunities• Throughout the 1800’s European leaders urged their citizens to move to far-off colonies.• The British for example emigrated to the far corners of the globe in search of new jobs not available at home, like Australia, and New Zealand.• Cecil Rhodes, most successful emigrant during this time, made a fortune from gold and diamond mining in southern Africa, where he then went on to find a colony that bore his name Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Cecil Rhodes and De Beers Continue to Dominate Diamond Industry
  9. 9. Born in India, English writerRudyard Kipling witnessed Britishimperialism firsthand. His 1899poem “The White Man’s Burden”summarizes his view of the dutiesof imperial nations:“Take up the White Man’sburden—In patience to abide,To veil the threat of terrorAnd check the show of pride;By open speech and simple,An hundred times made plain,To seek another’s profit,And work another’s gain.”
  10. 10. Zulu King CetshwayoA nephew of Shaka, Cetshwayo was thelast of the great Zulu kings. He ruled adisciplined army of about 40,000 menuntil the British defeated him in 1879.Why was Cetshwayo considered a threatto British colonial interests?
  11. 11. Favoring Imperialism“I contend that we are the first race inthe world and that the more of the worldwe inhabit the better it is for the humanrace. I contend that every acre added toour territory provides for the birth ofmore of the English race, who otherwisewould not be brought into existence . . . .I believe it to be my duty to God, myQueen and my country to paint thewhole map of Africa red, red from theCape to Cairo. That is my creed, mydream and my mission.”—Cecil RhodesOpposing Imperialism“A Pink Cheek man came one day to our Council. . . and he told us of the King of thePink Cheek who . . . lived in a land over the seas. ‘This great king is now your king,’ hesaid. This was strange news. For this land was ours. . . . We had no king, we elected ourCouncils and they made our laws. With patience, our leading Elders tried to tell this tothe Pink Cheek. . . . But at the end he said, ‘This we know, but in spite of this what Ihave told you is a fact. You have now a king . . . and his laws are your laws.’”—Chief Kabongo of the Kikuyu in Kenya
  12. 12. Interesting thing on news 2/3/10 @ stealing kids from Haiti• Growing numbers of missionaries were delegated to the most remote corners of Africa and Asia by the Catholic and Protestants.• The main aspect of these missionaries was thought that Christianity and Western civilization could benefit and transform the world.• These missionaries were not military based, but did set out to change the people’s beliefs and practices, as by building schools and hospitals.
  13. 13. Missionaries at Work Missionaries conduct a baptism ceremony in the Lower Congo in 1907. In 1890, Chief Machemba of the Yao people in East Africa wrote in Swahili to a German officer: “If it be friendship that you desire, then I am ready for it . . . but to be your subject, that I cannot be. . . . I do not fall at your feet, for you are God’s creature just as I am.” —Chief Machemba, Letter to Herman von Wissman Send in the missionaries, followed by merchants, and then, … oh yes, the military…

  16. 16. Forms of Imperialism• Colony: territory that an imperial power ruled directly through colonial officials.• Protectorate: Had its own government, but its policies were guided by a foreign power.• Sphere of Influence: was a region of a country in which the imperial power had exclusive investment or trading rights.

  20. 20. 1 The New Imperialism•Imperialism is the domination by one country of thepolitical, economic, or cultural life of another country orregion.•Between 1500 and 1800, European states won empiresaround the world. However, Europe had little influence onthe lives of the people of these conquered lands.•By the 1800s, Europe had gained considerable power.Encouraged by their new economic and militarystrength, Europeans embarked on a path of aggressiveexpansion that today’s historians call the “NewImperialism.”
  21. 21. 1 The Successes of Imperialism In just a few decades, imperialist nations gained control over much of the world. Western imperialism succeeded for a number of reasons:• 1. While European nations had grown stronger in the 1800s, several older civilizations were in decline.• 2. Europeans had the advantages of strong economies, well-organized governments, and powerful armies and navies.• 3. Europeans had superior technology and medical knowledge.

  23. 23. Ethiopia SurvivesOne ancient Christian kingdom in East Africa, Ethiopia,managed to resist European colonization and maintain itsindependence. Like feudal Europe, Ethiopia had been dividedup among a number of rival princes who ruled their owndomains. In the late 1800s, however, a reformingruler, Menelik II, began to modernize his country. He hiredEuropean experts to plan modern roads and bridges and setup a Western school system. He imported the latest weaponsand European officers to help train his army. Thus, when Italyinvaded Ethiopia in 1896, Menelik was prepared. At thebattle of Adowa , the Ethiopians smashed the Italianinvaders. Ethiopia was the only African nation, aside fromLiberia, to preserve its independence.
  24. 24. Menelik II• Ethiopia is Abyssinia to Europe.• Menelik II is direct ancestor of King Solomon and Queen of Sheba (and Emperor Haile Salassie later).• He can see what is coming and so invests in modernization, including weaponry and warning his neighbors to be prepared.
  25. 25. Menelik IIBefore becoming emperor of Ethiopia,Menelik II (1844–1913) ruled the Shoaregion in central Ethiopia. He ensuredthat he would succeed John IV asemperor by marrying his daughter toJohn’s son. After John died in 1889,Menelik took the throne.How did Menelik preserve Ethiopian independence? Menelik used profits from ivory sales to buy modern weapons. He then hired European advisors to teach his soldiers how to use the new guns. Menelik’s army conquered neighboring lands and won a stunning victory over the Italians at Adowa. European nations rushed to establish diplomatic ties with Ethiopia. Around the world, people of African descent hailed Menelik’s victory over European imperialism.
  26. 26. An Asante King A king of the Asante people in Ghana (center) sits surrounded by his people.What do the clothes of the man to the left of the king suggest about his social rank?
  27. 27. “Why did you not stand up to Rhodes “Did you give that word?”and prevent him from taking your “No.”country by strength? Why did you not “Were the soldiers keen to fight?”fight?” “Yes, they were dying to fight.”“I thought that if I appealed to the white “Why did you not let them fight?”men’s sense of justice and fair play, “I wanted to avoid bloodshed and war. . . .”reminding them how good I had been to “And you allowed them to flout your word as kingthem since I had never killed or ill- of the Amandebele?

  28. 28. Africa in the Early 1800s 2To understand the impact of European domination, we must look at Africa in the early1800s, before the scramble for colonies began. NORTH AFRICA WEST AFRICA On the grasslands, Islamic leaders preached Since long before 1800, the region had jihad, a holy struggle, to revive and purify close ties to the Muslim world. Islam. In the early 1800s, much of the region In the forest regions, the Asante controlled remained under the rule of the smaller states. These smaller tributary states declining Ottoman empire. were ready to turn to Europeans to help them defeat their Asante rulers. SOUTH AFRICA EAST AFRICA Zulu aggression caused mass Islam had long influenced the coast, migrations and wars and created where a profitable slave trade was chaos across much of the region. carried on. Slave trade will continue and Imperialism will separate men from their families--***
  29. 29. European Contacts Increased 2From the 1500s through the 1700s, difficult geography and diseaseprevented European traders from reaching the interior of Africa.Medical advances and river steamships changed all that in the 1800s. EXPLORERS MISSIONARIESExplorers were Catholic and Protestantfascinated by African missionaries sought to wingeography, but had little people to Christianity. Mostunderstanding of the took a paternalistic view ofpeople they met. Africans. They urged Africans to reject their own traditions in favor of western civilization.
  30. 30. Berlin Conference• To avoid bloodshed, European powers met at an international conference in 1884. It took place not in Africa but in Berlin, Germany. No Africans were invited to the conference.• At the Berlin Conference, European powers recognized Leopold’s private claims to the Congo Free State but called for free trade on the Congo and Niger rivers. They further agreed that a European power could not claim any part of Africa unless it had set up a government office there. This principle led Europeans to send officials who would exert their power over local rulers and peoples.• The rush to colonize Africa was on. In the 20 years after the Berlin Conference, the European powers partitioned almost the entire continent. As Europeans carved out their claims, they established new borders and frontiers. They redrew the map of Africa with little regard for traditional patterns of settlement or ethnic boundaries.• African soldiers in German uniforms
  31. 31. A Scramble for Colonies King Leopold II of Belgium sent explorers to the Congo River basin to arrange trade treaties with African leaders.King Leopold’s activities in the Congo set off a scrambleamong other European nations. Before long, Britain, France,and Germany were pressing for rival claims to the region.At the Berlin Conference in 1884, European powers agreed on howthey could claim African territory without fighting amongstthemselves.European powers partitioned almost the entire African continent.
  32. 32. The Scramble for Africa • The Scramble for Africa, also known as the Race for Africa was a process of invasion, attack, occupation, and annexation of African territory by European powers during the New Imperialism period, between 1881 and World War I in 1914. • As a result of the heightened tension between European states in the last quarter of the 19th century, the partitioning of Africa may be seen as a way for the Europeans to eliminate the threat of a Europe- wide war over Africa.The Rhodes Colossus, a caricature of Cecil Rhodes after announcingplans for a telegraph line from Cape Town to Cairo.For Punch by Edward Linley Sambourne.
  33. 33. • The last 59 years of the nineteenth century saw transition from ‘informal imperialism’ of control through military influence and economic dominance to that of direct rule. Attempts to mediate imperial competition, such as the Berlin Conference (1884–1885), failed to establish definitively the competing powers claims.• Many African polities, states and rulers (such as the Ashanti, the Abyssinians, the Moroccans and the Dervishes) sought to resist this wave of European aggression. However, the industrial revolution had provided the European armies with advanced weapons such as machine guns, which African armies found difficult to resist. Also, unlike their European counterparts, African rulers, states and people did not at first form a continental united front although within a few years, a Pan-African movement did emerge.
  34. 34. Western AdvantagesEuropean powers had the advantages of strong economies, well-organized governments, and powerful armies and navies. Superiortechnology, including riverboats and the telegraph, as well as improvedmedical knowledge also played a role. Quinine and other newmedicines helped Europeans survive deadly tropical diseases. And, ofcourse, advances such as Maxim machine guns, repeating rifles, andsteam-driven warships were very strong arguments in persuadingAfricans and Asians to accept Western control.The Maxim GunSir Hiram Maxim with hisinvention, the Maxim machinegun.Why were European armiesoften able to defeat African orAsian forces?
  35. 35. 2Imperialism in Africa to 1914
  36. 36. 2 African Resistance• Europeans met armed resistance across the continent.• Algerians battled the French for years.• The Zulus in southern Africa and the Asante in West Africa battled the British.• East Africans fought wars against the Germans.• In Ethiopia, King Menelik II modernized his country. When Italy invaded, Ethiopia was prepared. Ethiopia was the only nation, aside from Liberia, to preserve its independence.

  39. 39. David Livingstone David Livingstone is a famous Scottish explorer, who first went to Africa in1840. He was a doctor and missionary. While he explored central and east Africa heset up missions and sent back reports of his findings. He was the first recordedEuropean to see the Victoria Falls, to which he gave the English name in honor ofhis monarch, Queen Victoria. Believing he had a spiritual calling for explorationrather than mission work, and encouraged by the response in Britain to hisdiscoveries and support for future expeditions, in 1857 he resigned from theLondon Missionary Society after they demanded that he do more evangelizing andless exploring. The qualities and approaches which gave Livingstone an advantageas an explorer were that he usually traveled lightly, and he had an ability to reassurechiefs that he was not a threat. He lost touch in 1860 and Henry M. Stanley wassent to find him. “Dr. Livingstone, i presume?”
  40. 40. Henry M. Stanley•Henry Morton Stanley was the British journalist and explorer,hired to find Livingstone. He is best remembered for his quotewhen he met Livingstone, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?",although there is some question as to authenticity of this nowfamous greeting. Stanley also explored on his own. He wastricked by the Belgian King into getting Congo for him, but heremained on the king’s payroll even after he found out.•Publicity around the explorations of Africa caused a madEuropean scramble for Africa between 1880-1914, and by 191490 percent of Africa was under European control.
  41. 41. Shortly afterward, King Leopold II of Belgiumhired Stanley to explore the Congo River basinand arrange trade treaties with Africanleaders. Publicly, Leopold spoke of a civilizingmission to carry the light “that for millions ofmen still plunged in barbarism will be thedawn of a better era.” Privately, he dreamed ofconquest and profit. Leopold’s activities in theCongo set off a scramble by other nations.Before long, Britain, France, and Germanywere pressing rival claims to the region.
  42. 42. North AfricaNorth Africa is the northern most of the African continent, linkedby the Sahara to Sub-Saharan Africa. Geopolitically, the UNdefinition of Northern Africa includes the following sevencountries or territories; Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Sudan,Tunisia, Mauritania, and Western Sahara. Most people in NorthAfrica live on a fertile and mild strip of land north of the Saharaalong the Mediterranean coast.
  43. 43. The French In North Africa In 1830 King Charles X of France ordered an invasion of Algiers, in order to colonize it. This was the true beginning of hesecond French colonial empire. After about ten years the 100,000French soldiers beat the Algerians and their leader Abd al -Qadir. They established a protectorate on Tunisia in 1881 (BardoTreaty). In 1904 France secured special trading rights in Morocco. During the Agadir Crisis in 1911, Britain supported France and Morocco became a French protectorate.
  44. 44. Britain and Egypt  In the 1880s Ottoman Egypt was almost independent under Governor (Pasha)Muhammad Ali. Egypt was a power in the eastern Mediterranean under Ali. Ali reformed tax and land systems, encouraged industry and supported irrigation projects, but unfortunately the rulers after him increased debt and European influence. Ferdinand de Lesseps was a French entrepreneur who set up a company to build the Suez Canal (it would become a vital short cut). In 1875 GB gains control of canal and,In 1882 Egypt becomes a British protectorate after British forces put down a nationalist revolt.
  45. 45. The Sudan Sir Herbert Kitchener • In the Sudan there was a Muslim revival that stirred nationalist feelings. The Sudanese had challenged British exploration since the 1880s. At the Battle of Omdurman (2 September 1898), an army commanded by the British General Sir Herbert Kitchener defeated the army of Abdullah al-Taashi. Around 10,000 Ansar were killed,13,000 were wounded, and 5,000 were taken prisoner. Kitcheners force lost 48 men with 382 wounded. Soon after the British confronted the French at Fashoda, bringing the two countries to the brink of war. War was avoided when the French withdrew from Sudan and Britain recognized French control of Morocco.
  46. 46. Italy Seizes Libya  Libya was known as Tripoli in the 1800s and had almost no economic value but Italy, the closest European nation, wanted it because, they were starting late in the race to build an African empire. In 1911, after the other European nations promised neutrality, Italy declared war on the ruling Ottoman Empire and easily won. Libya was the last North African country to be conquered by Europeans.
  47. 47. West, Central and East Africa During the 1800s there many territories with varied landscapes, histories and traditions.Europeans swallowed up the lands in the late 1800s. West Africa -In the1500s and 1600s there was European slave trade on the coast. Salt, goldand ironware were also traded. When European countries stopped trading slaves in the 1800swest African countries traded natural products for manufactured goods. European countries pushinland in 1870s to expand coastal holdings and control trade. Steam ships allowed for easiertravel over difficult terrain and quinine provided protection from malaria. By 1900 Europeanpowers had acquired vast new territories. Leaders in the 1890s, such as Samory Toure andBehanzin, fought against the expansion but were defeated by well armed European forces.The only independent state in West Africa by 1900 was Liberia, founded as a colony by theAmerican Colonization Society in 1821-22. It was created as a place for slaves freed in theUnited States to emigrate to in Africa, on the premise they would have greater freedom andequality there.Slaves freed from slave ships also were sent there instead of being repatriated to their countriesof origin. These freed slaves formed an elite group in Liberian society, and, in 1847, they foundedthe Republic of Liberia, establishing a government modeled on that of the United States.Liberias ties to the US made it off limits for expansion.
  48. 48. Central and East Liberia Africa Congo EthiopiaBelgiums King Leopold II claimed the Congo river region as his own as aresult of Henry Stanleys explorations. He enslaved the people, forced them tocut down the forests and kill the elephants. doing that stripped the area of manypeople and resources. In 1903 in exchange for a large loan Leopard gave theCongo Basin to the Belgian government and it became the Belgian Congo. TheBritish, Italians and Germans were claiming East Africa at this time. The onlyindependent country was Ethiopia. Liberia was repopulated with freedAmerican slaves.In the 1880s Italy attempts to conquer Ethiopia and its Emperor Menelik II,but underestimate their determination, and lose devastatingly at the Battle ofAdowa. Italy and Ethiopia signed a provisional treaty of peace on 26 October1896. The Italian defeat scares away the other European counties and protectsEthiopia.
  49. 49. Southern Africa  The Dutch arrived in Southern Africa in 1652 andestablished a port called Cape Town and for the next 150 years the Afrikaners, what the settlers were called, conquered land around port, the lands became known as Cape Colony. The British seizeCape Colony, in the early 1880s, because of its strategic value. The Afrikaaners believed that God had ordained slavery and that they were superior, and they resented the British laws that forbadeslavery. In the 1830s 100,000 Afrikaaners that the British calledBoers left Cape Colony. They migrated north east on The GreatTrek, and established the Transvaal and the Orange Free State.
  50. 50. ConflictsThe Afrikaners fought constantly with their neighbors. They fight with the Zulu fora large empire conquered by the Zulu in the early 1800s. The Boers couldnt win avictory, in 1879 the British become involved, the British win against the Zulu,especially their great king Shaka. The Boers also fought with the British, when, in the 1880s, British settlers movedto Transvaal and searched for gold and diamonds. the Boers were pushed to give theBritish civil rights. Growing hostility erupted into the Anglo-Boer War, also knownas the Second Boer War, it was fought from 11 October 1899 until 31 May 1902,between the British Empire and the two independent Boer republics of the SouthAfrican Republic. The British win.On 31 May 1910 the British unite the previously separate colonies of CapeColony, Natal, Transvaal and the Orange Free State, into the Union of SouthAfrica. Its constitution made it almost impossible for non-whites to win the right tovote.
  51. 51. Racial EqualityRacial equality becomes a major issue. Many non-white South Africangroups tried to advance their civil rights. Mohandas K. Gandhi a lawyerfrom India, was one man. He worked for equality for Indians, and he urgedthem to disobey laws that discriminated against them. His efforts worked.Following Gandhi’s pattern, the black majority in Africa went into actionagainst racial injustices. They founded the organization of the SouthAfrican Native National Congress (SANNC) on 8 January 1912 inBloemfontein to increase the rights of the black South African population.In 1923, its name was shortened to the African National Congress. Gandhis principles of nonviolent protest were called satyagraha, which he loosely translated as "truth-force."[
  52. 52. Effects of Imperialism1. The effects mainly centered on economic and social life.2. Imperialists profit from building mines, factories and ports and plantations.3. Africans were hired at low wages and taxed.4. Men were housed in dormitories away from their families and disciplined brutally. Prostitution and HIV/STDs spread.5. European schools taught that European ways are best.6. Sometimes African traditions declined, but most held on to their cultures and accepted some European ways, including Christianity.7. By the early 1900s there were groups that condemned imperialism as contrary to western ideas of liberty and equality.8. They founded nationalist groups to push for self-rule and Africas peoples were politically independent from Europe by end of 20th century.
  53. 53. Railroads and TradeBy building thousands of miles of railroads, theBritish opened up India’s vast interior to trade. TheBritish also encouraged Indians to grow tea and jute.Today, tea is one of India’s biggest crops.What were some of the benefits of British rule?
  54. 54. By 1797, Napoleon Bonaparte felt thatEurope offered too few chances forglory. Setting his sights toward Africa in1798, he invaded Egypt, a province ofthe Ottoman empire.“Europe is a molehill. . . . We must go tothe East. . . . All great glory has beenacquired there.”Napoleon’s Egyptian campaign highlighted Ottoman decline and opened a newera of European contact with Muslim regions of the world. European countrieswere just nibbling at the edges of Muslim countries. Before long, they wouldstrike at their heartland.

  57. 57. 3 The Ottoman EmpireBy the early 1800s, the Ottoman empire faced serious challenges.• Ambitious pashas, or provincial rulers, had increased their power.• As ideas of nationalism spread from Western Europe, internal revolts weakened the multiethnic Ottoman empire.• European states sought to benefit from the weakening of the Ottoman empire by claiming lands under Ottoman control.• Attempts at westernization by several Ottoman rulers increased tensions. Many officials objected to changes that were inspired by foreign cultures.• A reform group called the Young Turks overthrew the sultan.• Nationalist tensions triggered a brutal genocide of the Armenians, a Christian people in the eastern mountains of the empire.
  58. 58. General Ismail Pasha (center) fought for the British army in the Crimean War.In the 1890s, a group of liberals formed a movement called theYoung Turks. They insisted that reform was the only way to save theempire. In 1908, the Young Turks overthrew the sultan. Before theycould achieve their planned reforms, however, the Ottoman empirewas plunged into the world war that erupted in 1914.
  59. 59. Armenian GenocideTraditionally, the Ottomans had let minority nationalities live intheir own communities and practice their own religions. By the1890s, however, nationalism was igniting new tensions,especially between Turkish nationalists and minority peopleswho sought their own states. These tensions triggered a brutalgenocide of the Armenians, a Christian people concentrated inthe eastern mountains of the empire. Genocide is a deliberateattempt to destroy a racial, political, or cultural group.The Muslim Turks accused Christian Armenians of supportingRussian plans against the Ottoman empire. When Armeniansprotested repressive Ottoman policies, the sultan had tens ofthousands of them slaughtered. Over the next 25 years, between600,000 and 1.5 million Armenians were killed or died fromdisease and starvation.
  60. 60. 3 The Modernization of Egypt Called the “father of modern Egypt,” Muhammad Ali introduced political and economic reforms. Before he died in 1849, he had set Egypt on the road to becoming a major Middle Eastern power.During his reign, Muhammad Ali:• improved tax collection• reorganized the landholding system• backed large irrigation projects to increase farm output• expanded cotton production and encouraged local industry, thereby increasing Egyptian participation in world trade• brought in western military experts to modernize the army• conquered Arabia, Syria, and Sudan

Persia from 1794 to 1925, exercised absolute power. Still, they did take steps to introduce reforms. The government helped build telegraph lines and railroads and experimented with a liberal constitution. Reform, however, did not save Persia from Western imperialism. Russia wanted to protect its southern frontier and expand into Central Asia. Britain wanted to protect its interests in India. For a time, each nation set up its own sphere of influence in Persia. The discovery of oil in the early 1900s heightened foreign interest in the region. Both Russia and Britain plotted for control of Persian oil fields. They persuaded the Persian government to grant them concessions, or special rights given to foreign powers. To protect their interests, they sent troops into Persia. Persian nationalists were outraged. The nationalists included two very different groups. Some Persians wanted to move swiftly to adopt Western ways. Others, led by Muslim religious leaders, condemned the Persian government and Western influences.

In 1600 some English traders formed the East India Company Which later became the richest and most powerful trading companies the world has ever known Built trading post and forts throughout IndiaFrench tried to challenge the British, but they were later crushed by Robert Clive, a East India Company Agent, along with an army of British and Indian troops at the Battle of Plassey 1757.
  67. 67. Angry sepoys rose up against their British officers. The Sepoy Rebellion swept across northernand central India. Several sepoy regiments marched off to Delhi, the old Mughal capital.There, they hailed the last Mughal ruler as their leader. In some places, the sepoys brutallymassacred British men, women, and children. But the British soon rallied and crushed therevolt. They then took terrible revenge for their earlier losses, torching villages andslaughtering thousands of unarmed Indians.The Sepoy Rebellion left a bitter legacy of fear, hatred, and mistrust on both sides. It alsobrought major changes in British policy. In 1858, Parliament ended the rule of the East IndiaCompany and put India directly under the British crown. It sent more troops to India, taxingIndians to pay the cost of these occupying forces. While it slowed the “reforms” that hadangered Hindus and Muslims, it continued to develop India for Britain’s own economic benefit.
  68. 68. The Sepoy RebellionThe East Indian Company quickly controlled most of India in 1857. Later that year, Sepoys rebelled against their British commanders and it began to spread across the Northern and Central India.Indians had massacred British men, children, and women.In response, they killed thousands of unarmed Indians.In 1858 Parliament ended the East Indian Company. They had sent a viceroy to rule as the monarchs representative and India became “the Jewel in the Crown”—Queen Victoria claimed India as a crown colony and became an Empress.

Over-population led to terrible famines.• The British revised the Indian legal system.• British rule brought peace and order to the countryside.• Upper-class Indians sent their sons to British schools.
  71. 71. Indian Nationalism• British built paved roads and an extensive railroad; installed telegraph lines and dug irrigation canals; and established schools and universities• They forced Indians to grow cotton instead of wheat which led to the lack of wheat and resulted in severe food shortages that killed millions of Indians during 1800s• Huge taxes and inflated prices made it hard to afford certain products—example: tax on salt.• In 1885 a group of Indian business and professional leaders formed the Indian National Congress who tried to peacefully protest to urge British to grant more power to the Indians – Also the group that led the long struggle for complete independence—Gandhi will lead with non-violent, passive resistance.

  73. 73. The Great Game• The Great Game was introduced into mainstream consciousness by British novelist Rudyard Kipling in his novel Kim (1901). In a phrase coined by Captain Arthur Connolly an intelligence officer of the British East India Companys Sixth Bengal Light Cavalry, before he was beheaded in Bokhara for spying in 1842, a "Great Game" was played between Tsarist Russia and Victorian England for supremacy in Central Asia. The classic Great Game period is generally regarded as running approximately from the Russo-Persian Treaty of 1813 to the Anglo-Russian Convention of 1907.• At stake was the security of India, key to the wealth of the British Empire. When play began early in the 19th century, the frontiers of the two imperial powers lay two thousand miles apart, across vast deserts and almost impassable mountain ranges; by the end, only 20 miles separated the two rivals.
