The Dutch control Indonesia
By the early 19th century, the Dutch East India Company
established control of the 3,000 mile long chain of Islands known
as Indonesia and established plantations producing sugar cane,
coffee, cocoa, rubber, coconuts, bananas, and pineapple.
The British control Malaysia
In order to compete with the Dutch holdings in Indonesia, the
British sought to gain a foot hold in South East Asia.
Using Singapore as a trading base, Britain soon gained control of
the Malay Peninsula and Burma, where they developed
businesses based on rubber, tin, and teak.
The British encouraged the immigration of Chinese to Malaysia
to work in tin mines and tap rubber trees. As a result Malays
eventually became a minority in their own land and tensions
between Chinese and native Malays remains unresolved to this
The French control Indochina
The French began direct rule of Vietnam after seven French missionaries were killed during the reign of
an anti-Christian emperor.
Church leaders and French businesses interested in expanding overseas markets demanded military
The French military invaded Southern Vietnam and occupied it. Later they expanded their control to

• Roosevelt Corollary
The Roosevelt Corollary was an extension of
the Monroe Doctrine by U.S. President Theodore
Roosevelt in 1904. Roosevelt's extension of the
Monroe Doctrine asserted a right of the United
States to intervene in order to "stabilize" the
economic affairs of small states in the Caribbean
and Central America, if they were unable to pay
their international debts

The US “Sphere of Influence”
The Philippines
After defeating the Spanish in the
Spanish Am War, the U.S. had only
maintained control over Manila and its
surrounding provinces. The rest of the
islands were controlled by the
Filipinos. President William McKinley
then ordered the War Department to
place the rest of the islands under
military control. He issued the
Benevolent Assimilation Proclamation
which, although outwardly expressing
friendship and offering guidance to the
Philippine people, was actually a
declaration asserting American
dominance of the islands.
Uncle Sam Invites the Hungry Philippines
to Share Its Prosperity
The Filipinos refuse to recognize American sovereignty.
On February 4, 1899, an American soldier shot at a Filipino soldier crossing a bridge onto American
territory. This marked the beginning of the Philippine-American War. At this time, the ratification of the
Treaty of Paris was pending, and McKinley used this event, stating that the Filipinos had instigated the
incident, to garner support for the treaty. It was ratified by the Senate within two days.
The Filipinos, led by Aguinaldo, waged a fierce battle against American troops for three years. Aguinaldo
resorted to guerilla warfare and despite being victorious in several battles, was eventually captured
President Theodore Roosevelt, who had become
president upon McKinley’s assassination, then issued
the official Peace Proclamation ending the war on
July 4, 1902. However, it wasn’t until 1913 that
resistance and guerilla warfare on the outskirts of the
Philippines officially subsided.
The casualties suffered on both sides during the
Philippine-American War were more numerous than
during the relatively peaceful Spanish-American War.
Over 4,000 American troops, 20,000 Filipino
soldiers, and 500,000 Filipino civilians died over the
course of the war.

In 1870, diamond diggers discovered stones at the Bultfontein, Du Toits Pan, and
Vooruitzight farms, and in 1871, an 83.50 carat diamond was found on the slopes
of Colesberg Kopje, leading to the first 'diamond rush' into the area. Miners began
arriving by the thousands, and the hill at Colesberg Kopje began to disappear,
replaced by a gigantic open-pit mine that became known as the "Big Hole.”

Imperialism In Africa
The Boer Wars in South Africa
The Boers opposed the British rule in the Cape Colony, especially after 1833, when
the British government made slavery illegal in the Cape Colony.
This forced the Boers to emigrate from the Cape Colony. Piet Retief and his
followers established the Republic of Natalia.
In May 1842, British forces invaded the Republic of Natalia and converted it into a
British colony.
From Natal, many Boers again trekked northwards to the Orange River, where they
established two states, namely Transvaal and the Orange Free State, respectively.
However, as a result of the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902), both Transvaal and the
Orange Free State became British colonies.

Magazine, Feb. 1899
Take up the White Man's burden-Send forth the best ye breed-Go, bind your sons to exile
To serve your captives' need;
To wait, in heavy harness,
On fluttered folk and wild-Your new-caught sullen peoples,
Half devil and half child.
Take up the White Man's burden-In patience to abide,
To veil the threat of terror
And check the show of pride;
By open speech and simple,
An hundred times made plain,
To seek another's profit
And work another's gain.
Take up the White Man's burden–
And reap his old reward-The blame of those ye better
The hate of those ye guard-The cry of hosts ye humour
(Ah, slowly!) toward the light:-"Why brought ye us from bondage,
Our loved Egyptian night?"
Take up the White Man's burden-Ye dare not stoop to less-Nor call too loud on Freedom
To cloak your weariness.
By all ye will or whisper,
By all ye leave or do,
The silent sullen peoples
Shall weigh your God and you.

It is very important to remember that Africans did not meekly acquiesce
to European hegemony. They resisted, often violently, to a
technologically superior enemy. Like the Chinese and Vietnamese and
Indians. . .
The development and spread of nationalism as an ideology fostered new
communal identities
(such as the German nation, Filipino nationalism or Liberian nationalism).
Anglo–Zulu War
New states (such as the Cherokee nation, Siam, Hawai’i or the Zulu
kingdom) developed on the edges of empire.
A depiction of the
Battle of
Isandlwana, taken
from the Illustrated
London News.
The Battle of Isandlwana on 22 January 1879 was the first major encounter in the between the
British Empire and the Zulu Kingdom. Eleven days after the British commenced their invasion of
Zululand in South Africa, a Zulu force of some 20,000 warriors attacked a portion of the British main
column consisting of about 1,800 British, colonial and native troops and perhaps 400 civilians.The
Zulus were equipped mainly with the traditional assegai iron spears and cow-hide shields, but also
had a number of muskets and old rifles[13] though they were not formally trained in their use.[14] The
British and colonial troops were armed with the state-of-the-art[15] Martini-Henry breech-loading rifle
and two 7 pounder artillery pieces as well as a rocket battery. Despite a vast disadvantage in
weapons technology,[16] the numerically superior Zulus ultimately overwhelmed the poorly
led and badly deployed[17] British, killing over 1,300 troops, including all those out on the
forward firing line.
The Battle of Adwa (also known as Adowa, or sometimes by the Italian name Adua) was
fought on 1 March 1896 between the Ethiopian Empire and the Kingdom of Italy near the
town of Adwa, Ethiopia, in Tigray. It was the climactic battle of the First Italo-Ethiopian
War, securing Ethiopian sovereignty.
Resistance in the Pacific
In a small number of states, governments promoted their own
state-sponsored visions of industrialization. (such as the
economic reforms of Meiji Japan, the development of
factories and railroads in Tsarist Russia, China’s SelfStrengthening program or Muhammad Ali’s development of
a cotton textile industry in Egypt)

The Proclamation
Notwithstanding the earnest and laborious work of reforms in the administration of Korea
in which the Governments of Japan and Korea have been engaged for more than four years
since the conclusion of the Agreement of 1905, the existing system of government in that
country has not proved entirely equal to the duty of preserving public order and
tranquillity; and in addition, the spirit of suspicion and misgiving dominates the whole
In order to maintain peace and stability in Korea, to promote the prosperity and welfare of
Koreans, and at the same time to ensure the safety and repose of foreign residents, it has
been made abundantly clear that fundamental changes in the actual regime of government
are absolutely essential. The Governments of Japan and Korea, being convinced of the
urgent necessity of introducing reforms responsive to the requirements of the situation and
of furnishing sufficient guarantee for the future, have, with the approval of His Majesty the
Emperor of Japan and His Majesty the Emperor of Korea, concluded, through their
plenipotentiaries, a treaty providing for complete annexation of Korea to the Empire of
Japan. By virtue of that important act, which shall take effect on its promulgation on
August 29, 1910, the Imperial Government of Japan shall undertake the entire government
and administration of Korea, and they hereby declare that the matters relating to foreigners
and foreign trade in Korea shall be conducted in accordance with the following rules:
