1.)Describe how South Africa nation was before the era of the British imperialism.
Industrialization caused many countries to hope for more resources for their own industrial production. Africa was looked as a source of raw materials and as a market for industrial products. Due to imperialism, stronger countries dominated Africa's political system, economic system, and social life.
British imperialism changed South Africa's nation because they divided its colonies and changed their society. It also affected African economies and made them dependent on trade with Britain. With the help of British missionaries and military, they were able to stop slave trade and gain back freedom of slaves.
This example shows that despite of Britain's domination of South Africa, they also provided positive effects such as freeing slaves.
