The one constant theme from any period in history we examine seems to be that of change. As Europe began to take shape, it did so with an expansion and contraction rate that was dramatically impacted by changes in political organizations, positive and negative economic forces, and through shifts in social structure. The path to the creation of the European empires was a long and tedious journey. Sixth century feudalism gave way to the creation of a central authority. The thirteenth century was scarred by the Black Death but it brought about economic changes that would resonate well into the Renaissance period of the fifteenth century.

This paper will discuss how prior to World War II colonial rule affected development in the region as well as economic and societal changes. The Far East, more specifically South East Asia, was seen in Western eyes as a vast opportunity to develop a region which up to this point hadn’t become industrialized. (Borthwick 2007, 80) South East Asia had been known to the western world for centuries due to land trading routes established previously throughout the region. (Borthwick 2007, 65) While there were many nations that were imperialistic, Great Britain and France were among the most vigorous in their pursuit of greater power. Imperialism in South East Asia took off with the ability to transport military might via sea from far distances.

Truth be told, there was a comparative period of globalization which started a century before, around 1870, and assembled energy until 1914, when it arrived at a sudden end.

[Armajani, n.d.] Of great concern in the early 19th century to its rulers, reform efforts began. One of the most important and aggressive programs was Tanzimat. Tanzimat is Turkish for “reorganization” and this was of utmost importance to the Ottoman Empire. Initiated at a time when it was understood that the weakening empire was surrounded by countries that were flourishing, Tanzimat was an attempt at modernizing a dying empire. Reformist sultans, Mahmud II and his son, Abdul-Mecid, were the major contributors and supports of Tanzimat.
