imperialism

from and

The word "imperialism" comes from Latin. It describes the striving of states to extend their power far beyond their own national borders. This can be done by making weaker countries dependent on the stronger country politically, economically, culturally or with other methods. Sometimes a stronger country goes to war directly against a weaker country in order to gain control of that country.

The period between 1880 and 1918 is considered the age of imperialism. At that time, the colonial powers divided the areas of Africa and Asia, which were not yet colonies, among themselves. Germany and Italy as well as the USA and Japan have now joined the old European colonial powers. The colonial powers used the ruled areas as suppliers of raw materials and as markets for products made in their own countries.
