As your textbook explains, the 19th century was the age of imperialism. Newly industrialized nations reached out to secure access to natural resources by taking control of non-industrialized parts of the world. Your assignment is to write an essay (min: 300 words) in which you discuss one industrialized country’s method of imperialism. Clearly state the country you chose and explain the historical details of its imperialistic endeavors. What parts of the world did it seek to control? How did it establish control over these parts of the world? What were its policies? How did it treat the indigenous peoples who lived in the parts of the world it sought to control? How did the indigenous peoples respond? Citations (in-text and works cited in MLA format) to verify use of the textbook are required. If you use any additional sources, they must be cited as well.
