INR2001 10.03.16  Imperialism: domination of one nation over another by political and economic factors ­Not all empires are European, but lasting effects of the European empires are significant ­The ability to navigate across oceans, trade, and technological advances made European  powers empires.  Used trade to their advantage to take over through such advancement ­Empires arose for many different reasons.   Some wanted territory and total control  Some wanted small colonies being less concerned with large regional  control  France and Britain ­became major figures as imperial powers after Spanish influence fades ­British empire becomes most influential after French decline  Britain becomes influential in language, religion, and governance ­begins to fail after WWI  End of Empires ­Britain and France collapse in different mays  Britain has a peaceful process and leaves behind some administrative capacity  France has a violent experience ­The US had few countries under their imperialism, but still had MAJOR influence  Legacy of the Colonial Period ­Economic consequences: colonies used as source of raw materials and market for  manufactured goods ­Political consequences: borders drawn in ways that let to conflict ­Positives: infrastructure, education systems, etc 10.05.16  The Cold War ­Important because it represented bipolarity between the USA and Soviet Union ­Introduced the concepts of potential for nuclear war and apocalyptic disaster ­Bipolarity: two large superpowers ­Contest between them and would define global history for the next 45 years From a realist standpoint, the two nations are destined to conflict, BUT say it was Britain and the USA, they would of cooperated. USA and Soviet Union had contrasting worldviews, hence the conflict. Etc, communism.  Different Interpretation ­Standard historical view: sees origins of cold war in expansionist Soviet Union ­Revisionist View: sees origins of cold war driven by US as a reaction to Soviet actions  that were necessary after WWII. *Soviet Untion didn’t want bad similar WWII things to happen to them again. *US wanted to defend themselves but they were seen as hostile due to the  development of weaponry. As a result, the Soviet Union built weaponry. Turned  into a giant misconception of hostility due to realist means of protecting  themselves.  Was anyone right? Was it all a giant misunderstanding? Could there have been a more  cooperative order in the world?  After WWII US and Soviet Union wanted to create an agreement between big powers to  prevent conflict (UN) but it obsviously didn’t work  Containment ­basic theory that powered the US’s cold war foreign policy ­George Kennan ­basic idea: soviet union is opportunistic. Deny them opportunities so that they  cannot expand ­USA cannot show weakness. If they are weak, Soviet Union expands. Big nono.
