Imperialism By:aubrey yorgason

Imperialism occurs when a strong nation takes over a weaker nation or region and dominates its economic, political, or cultural life. Examples of Imperialism are:

Example 1: European nations wanted to demonstrate their power and prestige to the world

Example 2: the influx of Chinese immigrants into Zambia. Chinese migration has increased in past years to Zambia. Zambia offers a strong example of developing-country policies. To get into Zambia tho there is a immigration system which says all visitors require a visa to enter Zambia, with stays past 30 days requiring an additional permit.

Example 3: the United States’ annexing of the Hawaiian Islands in 1896. Interest in Hawaii began in America as early as the 1820s. "A turning point in U.S.-Hawaiian relations occurred in 1890, when Congress approved the Mckinley Tariff, which raised import rates on foreign sugar."

Example 4: European nations were forced to acquire new colonies to achieve a balance with their neighbors and competitors. European migration provided further impetus for Western expansion.
