Imperialism Around the world

Imperialism: Acquisition by a government of other governments or territories, or of economic or cultural power over other nations or territories, often by force. The practice of a strong country exerting its influence over a weaker country to the extent that it dominates the weaker country’s economics, politics, and culture.

Imperialism started in China, as well as western Asia.

Ancient Greece 356 to 323 B.C.E.

Under the rule of Alexander the Great Ancient Greece achieved imperialism. Alexanders goal was to achieve a cosmopolitan place. He wanted everyone in the world to live in peace. Trying to achieve his goal he had to take control of many countries. This lead to the peak of imperialism for Greece. When the Roman empire merged, Alexanders dream partially came true. After Rome fell however imperialism changed for the worse. It became more destructive.

India 1450-1750

The Sepoy mutiny was when the British wealth grew, and they continuously sought to influence and gain more power over the Indians.
