The Lure of India- British Imperialism Chapter 11.1
The Mughal Empire had been a thriving from approximately the 1550s to the early 1700s. During this time, the Mughals controlled much of India which held many attractions such as a warm climate that enabled crops to be grown more than one season per year.The subcontinent of India was also the crossroads for two major world religions, Hinduism & Islam, and the birthplace of yet another, Sikhism. Sikhism rose from the teachings of the mystic Nanak who sought to blend the Hindu and Islamic faiths - with devotion to only one God, no idols to worship, and a less rigid class system. Some of the Mughal emperors were more tolerant of other faiths such as Christianity than other emperors. The famous Taj Mahal took 20 years and 20,000 workers to construct. This along with other architectural wonders and maintenance of a large army proved to be more than the empire could sustain. Growing religious differences and poor leadership ended the powerful Mughal Dynasty leaving India vulnerable to foreign powers.

Imperialism in North Africa - Mini-Lecture

  • 1830 - Algeria - French showed "interest" in Algeria, formerly part of the Ottoman Empire, to make part of their empire. Although the Algerians fought for 40 years,resistance was futile.
  • 1881 - Tunisia, also an outlaying independent part of Ottoman Empire, attracted the attention of France & was made a protectorate after a "crisis"
  • 1904 -Morocco seated at the entrance to the Mediterranean Sea was another prize for French imperial holdings. The sultan of Morocco sought to retain his rule during a rebellion & therefore enlisted the military aid of France. In return, Morocco became a protectorate as well.

Imperial European Cooperation
  • France - took Morocco as a protectorate
  • Spain - Western Sahara as sphere of influence
  • Italy - to claim Libya
  • Great Britain - Egypt became a protectorate after the Egyptian ruler sold off stock in the newly built modern-marvel, the Suez Canal. By 1875, Britain had accumulated the controlling interest of the canal. Egyptians rose up in rebellion in 1882 but were put down by the British Royal Navy. Egypt became a British protectorate.
  • British dominance over eastern Africa was nearly complete with the acquisition of the Sudan & the Upper Nile River. They had been briefly menaced by the threat of violence from the French army, but the French quickly realized that they were no match for the British in the heart of the Sudan.

Berlin Conference - Bismarck 1885
Berlin Conference - Bismarck 1885

The Berlin Conference was called for by Portugal due to their concern that they would lose their colonies in Mozambique and Angola, possessions that they had held since the Age of Exploration. Bismarck presided over the conference hence the name Berlin Conference. It was seen as the more logical way to claim territory in Africa. There were provisions to share waterways, and to put and end to the slave trade which still remained in eastern Africa well into the 1880s with slaves being bought/sold into the Middle East. This is a French cartoon (of course) note the point of view .
