The Shift of Powers

- Between the 1600’s and 1700’s, global power shifted away from Asian countries and towards European nations.

The exploitation of these continents led to acquisition of land, increased wealth and power, and the waning dependence on Asia. With the discovery of new and unclaimed land, the European nations scrambled to lay claims over the vast areas and regions of the Americas....   [tags: World History ]
