U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt sought to prevent European intervention, largely to protect the routes to the future Panama Canal, as the canal was already under construction. So he made a small military intervention to ward off the European powers. In 1905 Dominican agreement with the U.S. was created.

Video Races and Languages In India there was a mixture between an indigenous “Dravidian Race”, with some “Australoid”. These classifications were done because of the scientific racism, which was an excuse of classifying people in minor races because of European imperialism. During this period Britain divided India’s ethnic groups in two races: The martial race: brave people able to fight in British armies. The non martial: the unfitted unable to fight, this ones were in the rebellions It also had several languages, back then there were almost 10 different languages, the most used were: • English • Hindustani • Urdu Main Geographical, Climatic and Ecological feautures -India is located in South Asia by the Indian Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the southwest, and the Bay of Bengal on the southeast. -India was one of the biggest countries and still being one, before it had more land including Indonesia and others that were lost in battles. -India was composed by highlands like the Himalayas and plains. With several peaks and mountain ranges. - The mayor rivers: Brahmaputra, Ganges, Meghna, Mahanadi, Godavari, Krishna, Kaver that flow into the Bay of Bengal - Climate: these give rise to desert in the west, alpine tundra and glaciers in the north, humid tropical regions sup-porting rain forests in the southwest, and island territories flanking the Indian subcontinent. -Seasons: winter (January and February), summer (March to May), a monsoon (rainy) season (June to September), and a post-monsoon period (October to December). Religion(s) and Form of Goverment Natural Resources and Exploitation The economy was based primarily on agriculture, establishing along the valleys near the river of Ganges and Indus. Britain made cash crops mainly of tea and opium. Also they had forests that produced a lot of wood and it limited with seas so the fishing was very rich. Among its mineral resources include deposits of iron, bauxite, manganese, zinc, chromium and gold also has coal, oil and natural gas. All of these resources were exploited by European countries that had more power, taking advantage of their poor people that worked and sold cheap and the trade routes making a huge market Economic relations with other countries and function India did not have an organized government, and suffered many wars. That is why when other empires or countries came to rule they could not defend their selves. Everyone wanted a piece of them for market, or resources or just more territory. During the early 19th century India was governed by the East Indian. India became a market place for finished goods from England. The East India Company traded mainly in cotton, silk, indigo dye, saltpetre, tea, and opium. Then after the mutiny un 1857 England took all control of India. The level of technological and military evolution, its relations. Most of the people cultivate so they did not know anything about warfare. They were divided in two, the ones in the British army and the rebellions. Indian armed forces in the British army played a vital role in both World Wars. The Army of India was raised under the British Raj in the 19th century by taking the old armies, putting them together and taking them to the Crown. Management of the Country First there was struggle in India for territory between its own chiefs so it made easier for Britain to attack. The period where they ruled was called "The Raj" where they imposed their policies like not lettng Indians work in offices and also extracted a lot of products. Independence Process Everyone was expecting something to happen, when suddenly Indians heard that the catridge of Einfield's rifle used by the British-Indian army was heavily greased with cow and pig fat which were sacred for Hindus and Muslims. It all began with a mutiny in 1857. Then they changed some rules to avoid another rebellion, but in 1898 when Lord Curzon became viceroy, Indian nationalist movement began to stir. In 1919 Britain gave the autonomy. Nonviolent resistance to British colonialism led by Mohandas Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru brought independence in 1947. Indians were discontented and made a mutiny in 1857, being the first act of indeoendence.

Transcript: Social 8 Prezi by Jaxon Let's start off with Western Worldview. Differences in political, economical, and social systems during the Renaissance greatly affected the Europeans. Exploration became extremely important, and it eventually lead to the Age of Exploration. The Renaissance began mainly in Italy and the surrounding countries. Renaissance ideas and religions very quickly came to be. Martin Luther was an extremely important part of the Renaissance and the Age of Exploration. Following the Church was not enough to get into heaven, in his mind. Martin also believed that you should find your own personal religion, instead of following what others tell you to. Finally, possibly one of the most important belief of his, he thought that it was wrong to pay the Church for forgiveness. This led to other religions being formed. Humanism factualities drove some scholars to follow Luther's beliefs. People from the new Merchant class also followed his beliefs. Martin began to rebel against the Roman-Catholic church, and since they were protesting, he made a new religion called Protestant. The religions in Europe changed drastically during the Renaissance. The Roman-Catholic Church panicked and struggled to make everything more fair and reasonable. This shows an excellent example of ideas travelling across the many countries in the Renaissance. With these new religions coming to be, other people began wanting religious freedom. This lead to the formation of new countries. There are many important points on how ideas began to develop. The societies became more urban, gunpowder came from China, the printing press was invented, and a lot of exploration was going on. With all of these countries being formed, people saw themselves as citizens instead of peasants. Citizens were also now able to move out of their class, providing more freedom. Permanent armies were established soon after, paid for by taxes. The economy was also controlled by the government. National languages were invented, and religious literature was published in these languages. The trading routes were expanded so that more exotic goods could be traded. Many city-states in Italy gained power and wealth during the Renaissance because they worked on expanding their countries and settlements to the new land that was discovered. The Silk Road had always played an important part for the Europeans, but trade was very limited during the Renaissance. Islamic scientists, with help from Copernicus, proved that the Earth was spherical. There were several technological advances in cartography, ship-building, and navigation. The printing press allowed navigational maps and tables to become available for sharing. An explorer, who was also a prince, named Henry the Navigator, got many scholars to join him to perfect sailing techniques, instruments, designs for sails, maps, and a lot of new instruments. There are three main points that describe how the Age of Exploration began. One of them is the fact that each had an Atlantic coastline, which put them in an excellent position for both war and trade. Another important point is that the Monarchs of these countries financed most of the exploration overseas. The last and most important point is that there were improved ship designs, new navigational tools such as an astrolabe, and new land was found. New things started valuing exploration, which increased consumerism, and wealth of many people. Portugal found an extreme amount of wealth and trading goods during their voyage along the western coast of Africa. Spain, being jealous of Portugal's newfound wealth and power, sent it's own expeditions to the Far East. A man named Columbus sailed from Spain to an island in the Caribbean, which he thought was close to Asia. After that, he had several more trips, which eventually lead to him finding a new place unknown to Europeans. All of these countries were most focused on exploration than trading. England, didn't fund exploration; instead, they traded within Europe. When the Renaissance first started, France was busy fighting with England in a war. France wanted wealth and power as well, since they saw that Portugal and Spain found it. The Age of Exploration lead to Imperialism because countries wanted to expand to the newfound land, and also to protect them from a possible war. The expansion of these countries lead to the countries becoming very rich since they now had control over more of the new land. During another age, called the Age of Discovery, European nations found many new islands and a lot of new land that they previously did not know about. To clarify, the main reason Western European countries expanded, was to increase their wealth and power. Countries were very competitive. Europe thought that they were the leaders in everything, and they were able to tell absolutely anyone what to do. They thought that they could control all of the settlements, regardless of the religion and political views. Most of the
