The British Empire in colour (2002) Jalal Mayur say “the British government in India has not only deprive the Indian people of their but has base itself on the exploitation of the masses and has ruin India”.

The British did manage to establish mutual relationship between both empires, this was the first since 800 A.D to politically unify two subcontinents. The mighty attitudes of the British did influence many Indians and give them confidence to unite to drive the British out and achieving independence.
After the 1882 exclusion act, Chinese began to migrate to Canada and Mexico and crossed the border into United States illegally. In Latin America, Brazil and Peru followed in the anti-immigration footsteps of the United States and established their own anti-immigration laws in 1926 and again in 1934 which forced the Asian populations to go from Brazil to Paraguay and Argentina, from Peru to Bolivia. The total exclusion of Asians under the United States immigration act of 1924 prompted similar policies in Canada, Brazil and Peru in the 1920s and 1930s. Lee dubbed these movements the Domino effect of immigration since they kept moving from country to country, being chased out by discrimination and anti-racial laws (Lee, 20). Meanwhile, the anti-Asian movement in Mexico was “shaped by the Mexican revolution that led to... ... middle of paper ... ...aced the Japanese in camps, discriminated the Chinese and placed anti-Asian laws to stop their immigration into this country, as well as the segregation against blacks just a few decades ago.
The act was passed by Britain parliament and it was to affect all Britain colonies. The essay will give insight of the degree of oppression of the Act to colonies, the radical responses, and American Revolutionary acts that are implicit against the Stamp Act. Oppressiveness of the Stamp Act In 1764, the Sugar Act was enacted, putting a high duty on refined sugar. Even though silent, the Sugar Act tax was hidden in the cost of import duties making most colonists to accepted it. The Stamp Act, however, was a direct tax on the colonists and led to an uproar in America over an issue that was to be a major cause of the Revolution tool to oppose taxation without representation.
A new era was dawning on the American colonies and its mother country Britain, an era of revolution. The American colonists were subjected to many cruel acts of the British Parliament in order to benefit England itself. These British policies were forcing the Americans to rebellious feelings as their rights were constantly being violated by the British Crown. The colonies wanted to have an independent government and economy so they could create their own laws and stipulations. The British imperial policies affected the colonies economic, political, and geographic situation which intensified colonists’ resistance to British rule and intensified commitment to their republican values.
American Revolution One of the most important facets of any revolution is violence. This is often a response to the heightened repression or other intolerable demands from the government against its people. The American Revolution is no exception. Following the Seven Years War, England need to recover some of their finances which were lost due to the war. Parliament achieved this by the taxation of the American colonies; the Stamp Act of 1765 is an example of this.
Key figures, such as Benjamin Franklin and Samuel Adams, rose up to the challenge and defended the American colonies . The Stamp Act threatened every “free colonist”, taxing papers that were essential to every part of the social hierarchy in America, and the American reaction ranged from “boycotts of British goods to riots and attacks on the tax collectors”. Because of Britain’s perspective of the colonies only as “cash cow” for the benefit of the British empire, Americans began questioning the British rule over them. The topic of equality eventually popped up into the colonists’ argument over imposed taxation. Americans believed that they should have the same rights as the English men in Britain and that they had no representation
The impact of world war one was very much a significant out turn to Indian nationalism to an undoubted extent. Nonetheless, there were many other factors that had led up to the rise in nationalism with the help of rising leaders such as Ghandi and Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Nationalism is a form of patriotism based upon the identification of individuals within a nation. This can likewise be said for the people of India as many people had an intense desire for independence from the British rule. They had come to realise that the ways the British had been treating people were cruel and monstrous.
He also says that the British treat the Indians insultingly and without empathy (Doc 6,7,8). Imperialism also had an everlasting positive effect on India through its modernization. For instance, British colonizers develope... ... middle of paper ... ...he raise of impoverishment and the persecution of Indian citizens. Undeterred by these effects, British imperialism went on to tremendously increase the development of communication, transportation, agriculture and industry in India, effectively creating more wealth for the colony as a whole. India’s civilization was developed further as well by ridding of inhuman practices such as infanticide and slavery, efficaciously bringing India to be much more modern and civilized.
Not only did the western world attempt to civilize the savages, but they also instituted means of utilizing the savages’ labor to gain profit for themselves. For example, the British East India Trading Company was the number one exporting company in the world at the time. The majority of the goods in the company were native to India, yet the British sold it to countries such as the United States as British items. Unfortunately, by forcing the natives to provide free labor and accept British culture and customs, the British were setting themselves up for disaster. Rudyard Kipling shows this type of irony behind imperialism in one of his most famous works, “The White Man’s Burd... ... middle of paper ... ...wever, why are the people simply listening to what they have been told by society without noticing what is actually occurring?
