American Imperialism Page 2 American Imperialism American Imperialism in the Nineteenth Century was fairly popular. It was adopted for a few different reasons in which this paper will discuss. There were several events that led up to this change as well as several major events that took place during this time. Even with Imperialism’s popularity there was an American Anti Imperialists League that did not support Imperialism. Imperialism refers to political, economic, or cultural expansion of one’s influence over any other geographical or political territory. (Scholastics, 2009) The United States adopted this for a couple different reasons. The main reason this policy was adopted was because the United States industrial economy was growing so fast that they were producing more goods than they could consume. (N.A., n.d.) This over abundance of goods forced the United States to look for new markets to sell their goods. Another reason this was adopted is because the Americans were discontent with the way Spaniards were treating the Cubans. This led to the Spanish American War, which was the even that really opened the doors for American Imperialism.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
