    Ethnic favoritism has definite roots in colonialism. The redrawing of African boundaries was a tool used for colonial administration. In Richard Ilohar’s article, he states that “the exercise provided opportunities for the colonialists to play one ethnic group against another to maintain a strong grip on power,” which in fact agrees with Grabowski’s article which states the boundaries of African states “defied any genuine process of development, especially political development, and rather created

    expansion evolved from sixteenth-century colonialism driven by mercantilism to nineteenth-century nationalistic imperialism. Both had different forces compelling them; thus different countries—although most the same—participated in each phenomenon with unique, but largely similar goals. These two forces that overtook the world are comparable as they both have the same objectives; however, mercantilism compelled colonialism while nationalism drove imperialism.

    Colonialism It is almost a given now that most everyone considers colonialism as a mistake. They thought that the spreading of ideas, culture, and religion would have a positive effect on the native cultures they colonized.

For example, A Stranger walks into a house and claims it is his, while he enslaves the real owners and demands they follow his rules. It might seem like an unlikely scenario, but about 400 years ago, this was reality. European countries such as Spain and England wanted to expand their territories and become the world powers. Explorers like Christopher Columbus, soon started declaring regions that

The baby grows up, undeveloped with limited mobility, still attached to its mother by an extended umbilical cord.

    For my paper, I decided to look at the causes of colonialism. I really enjoyed reading about the arguments for acquiring colonies and the way different nations went about it. Whether it was Headrick’s Tools of Empire, Hochschild’s King Leopold’s Ghost or one of the many primary sources we read earlier in the semester, I found it fascinating to learn about the causes, not just the results, of the “the second wave of colonialism.” I originally set out to compare and contrast Germany and France in their

    or much of written history about Europe and its expansion process literature has seemed to always capture the beginning as hostile. There is no argument that Europe has had a plethora of malicious takeovers but the dynamics of colonialism have transitioned to a less aggressive imperialistic influence and have little need to colonialize any longer but to integrate. Starting with the colonization of countries in Africa it is a well-known fact that resistance most often lead to wars. What past literature

    However, Cervantes claims that the essence of powerlessness does not distinguish internal from external colonialism (523).
