2 During the late stages of the industrial age that had effects all over the globe, there were two other major movements that were beginning to influence society. The powerful industrialized nation’s use of imperialism had affects on numerous nations. Nationalism also played an important factor in the struggle to gain independence from the powerful nations controlling the ingenious lands. The spread of imperialism and nationalism can be noted for reshaping the current world borders in many countries around the world. This form of new imperialism started in the mid 1800s with the major countries coming from Western Europe, The United States and Japan. These nations were able to gain territory much faster than the previous conquests that happen during the 1600s. More than 150 million people would become under the rule of Europe and the United States (Bulliet 570). There were numerous reasons for theses powerful nations to take over these smaller territories. At the ending turn of the industrial age, countries were beginning to run out of resources to extract from the ground in their own country. Instead of having to pay the high cost of importing raw material sources from other developed countries, the industrialized countries felt that the cheapest method would be to overtake a country and export the materials for free.

    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.
