Summary

Summary

As the British imperialist poet Rudyard Kipling put it, European nations took up "the white man's burden" in the late nineteenth century and constructed colonial empires across the globe. The peoples of Africa, India, China, Japan, and other regions, however, were forced to deal with European intrusions. This text examines how, by 1900, a few western European nations as well as the United States established dominion over most of the earth and how colonized peoples reacted to them.
