  • This chapter presents selected case experiences of Western colonization, imperialism and incursions in Asia & the rise of the new nation states.
  • Marco Polo- whose travels are recorded in livre des Mervilles du Monde, a book which did much introduce Europeans to Central Asia and China. Manifest destiny-a policy of imperialism rationalized as inevitable(certain to happen)(as if granted by God)White man’s burden-the alleged duty of the white people to manage the affairs of the less developed non white people
  • Colonization is more related to establishing trade posts for the purpose of business and profit making and was undertaken by the European states in Asia in the 1500 to the 1900 centuries.From colonization to imperialism: the industrial revolution starting in the 2nd half of the 18th century. led to large increase in economic activity in Europe and ultimately resulted in high demand for raw materials as well as a need for markets to sell finished products. Together with increasing competition and tensions among these colonizing countries this resulted in a greater need for control of the colonized arean and a need for dominion building.(sovereignty or control)
  • What made this colonization by European countries possible?- the discovery of new sea/trade routes to Asia. (Initially by the Portuguese).- all these colonizing countries (Portugal, Spain, Britain, Germany, Netherlands, France), had strongly developed economies, advanced technology, military power with more advanced weaponry and most of all they were all seafaring nations.
  • 1
  • 1.) Exploitation of Natural and Human Resources. This resulted in deterioration of living standard( becoming and getting worst) and unequal distribution of wealth.2.) Forced Labor. It prevented formal education of the people and forced separation from their families.3.) Monopolistic Economic Policies. Allowing only British (the exclusive possession or control of the supply of or trade.4.) Curtailment of Rights and Freedom. These led to ignorance, illiteracy and limited education5.) Racial and Gender Discrimination. These resulted to injustices and abuse of human rights.
  • Nationalism- is the sense of nationhood or a state of awakened national consciousness. Nation- is an abstract and racial concept defined as a group of people with a feeling of onenss and belongingness bounded by recognized commonalities.
  • 1. Suez Canal Opening. Nov. 17, 1869. influx of foreign influences &development of outside awareness.2. World Trade. Enable natives to improve their economic status.3. Intellectual Revolution. The rise of intellectuals &professionals among the natives became leaders of change.4. Liberalization. Introduction&exposure to European liberal policies had opened the way to socio-political&economic ideas that reflect the negative aspects of colonial policies.5. Racial Discrimination. The inferior recognition and treatment of the natives made them develop a sense of pride and aspire for recognition, eventually making their own identity.
  • British Rule In India
  • In taking up the “White mans’ Burden”, the primary goal of the British system of education in India was to produce a class of English speaking Indians inclined to British ideals.
  • Mutiny-(an open rebellion against the proper authorities, especially by soldiers against their officer.Reformist- a person who advocates gradual reform rather than revolutionReform-make changes in (something, especially an institution or practice) in order to improve itDeter insurgency- to discouraged those fighting against government
  • Reformist- a person who advocates gradual reform rather than revolutionHe advocated “satyagraha” or nonviolent resistance. Vindication (show or prove to be right) of truth, not by infliction of suffering on the opponent, but on oneself.Famous for his quote “ An eye for an eye makes the world blind”
  • The motivation for British intrusion in Malacca was to balance the colonization of the region by the Dutch & to establish & protect trade routes to East Asia &China, by securing the Strait of Malacca (throughway route going to China) and a number of naval bases and trade facilities.
  • He led the commercial development of the Island by promoting free trade.
  • Malayan Union is in view of a common citizenship in a new unitary state. Britain was preparing for the future granting of independence to a Malayan Union. Malayan Union was opposed by the ethnic Malays on the issue of common citizenship that would also apply to the ethic Chinese inhabitants. The issue was a major concern for the ethic Malay since the number of ethnic chinese was larger. The ethnic Malay believed that they should have the stake(ownership) on an independent Malaya since they were the original native inhabitants of the territory. Extending common citizenship to the chinese would mean a state largely dominated by the chinese.
  • Moluccas(Spice Island) was administered at 1st by the East India Company, a commercial agent of the Dutch government until the government took over admininistration.Other natives were compelled to cultivate certain lands by rendering a period of forced labor.Subsequently, a “Liberal policy” allowed Europeans to own real estate and invest in agricultural lands. Eventually because of the natives substandard living conditions, an “Ethical Policy” was adopted to promote the welfare of the people.
  • Indonesia’s intellectuals who had the privilege of Dutch education too the lead in the advance of a nationalist cause.
  • In a French response to the persecution of their Catholic missionaries in Vietnam.The French developed an ideology to justify their imperial domination: the ‘civilising mission, is a form of the English ‘white man’s burden’. French imperialists claimed it was their responsibility to colonise undeveloped regions in Africa and Asia, to introduce modern political ideas, social reforms, industrial methods and new technologies. In reality, the mission civilisatrice was a sham. The real motive for French colonialism was profit and economic exploitation. French imperialism was driven by the demand for resources, raw materials and cheap labour.
  • 44 yrs. After the 1st arrival of Spaniards in the philippines, Miguel Lopez de Legaspi founded the 1st Spanish Colony at Cebu in 1565. The capital was moved to Manila in 1571.Spain introduce an “encomienda system” which entrusted parcels of land to certain Spaniards to develop the land and exercise some control over the inhabitants of the land. The system alongside the Catholic church’s resettlement plan was a scheme to lead the inhabitants to their submission to the government and church authority.Male natives were drafted to render “polo y servicio” or a period of forced labor in government projects. Trade monopolies were conducted by the Manila-Acapulco galleon trade and the (Royal Philippine Company), a charter or the Spanish government.
  • At 1st , Filipino intellects played an active role in the Propaganda Movement
  • Treaty of Paris or Peace of Paris was the signing on Great Britain, France, Portugal, Spain, US as agreement to stop the war.The proclamation reads in part:Finally, it should be the earnest wish and paramount aim of the military administration to win the confidence, respect, and affection of the inhabitants of the Philippines by assuring them in every possible way that full measure of individual rights and liberties which is the heritage of free peoples, and by proving to them that the mission of the United States is one of benevolent assimilation substituting the mild sway of justice and right for arbitrary rule
  • Foreign incursion into China by the British, France, Russia, the US, Portugal and the NetherlandsBritain was basically the biggest intruder. The British imperialism was fueled by the industrial revolution and population increase.There was high demand in Britain for trade in silk, tea, and porcelain from China. This largely paid for in silver bullion and resulted in a major trade deficit between China and Britain. Britain then replaced payments in silver by barter trade in opium and created generation of Addicts in China.___________________________________________Like a weakened prey down on its legs, Chinawa being “carved up’ for the taking. China was forced to give concessions which opened the country to more western opportunist and foreign governments using coercion( the action of persuading someone by using force or treat) in their interest.
  • The Chinese responded to the call by indiscriminately assaulting all foreigners into frightening them to leave China. The governments of the foreigners responded by force compelling China to yield.
  • Nationalism- patriotic feeling, principles, or efforts.Democracy -a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives:Socialism- a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.Abdicate - renounce one's throne:
  • The daimyo-were the powerful territorial lords in pre-modern Japan who ruled most of the country from their vast, hereditary land holdings. In the term, "dai” literally means "large", and "myō" stands for meaning private land.The Emperor placed Japan on thepathe of rapid modernization by adopting Western ideas and systems with the inputs of hired foreign experts in different areas of specialization. By adopting western advanced technologies, japan became a modern competitor and state with a a well developed industrial sector and a strong military, combined with wishes and need for expansionism. Japan was never colonized or victim of western imperialism but instead became an imperialist country itself, conquering Korea, manchuria and during the second world war, much of south east asia.
