If you remember nothing else:
|Industrialized countries in Europe, plus the US and Japan, controlled more territory overseas than ever before. This was good for investors in imperialist countries and bad for workers in the areas that they conquered.|
Britain, France, the British and Dutch East India Companies, Portugal, and Spain all began this period with colonial possessions in the Americas, Africa, and Asia.
Industrial developments, such as mass-produced goods, steamships, railroads, and more effective firearms, allowed states with them to expand their power
British abolition of the slave trade in 1807 contributed to the resurgence in indentured servitude.
Charles Darwin’s publication of the Origin of Species in 1859 contributed to justifications for imperialism later in the 1800s.
💡 STUDY TIP: You will never be asked specifically to identify a date. However, knowing the order of events will help immensely with cause and effect. For this reason, we have identified the most important dates to know 👇.

China and India deindustrialized, as factory-made goods from Europe and the US replaced their manufactured goods
European imperialists forced colonized people in Africa to produce and sell industrial products at disadvantageous prices

AP World History: Modern Units 5 and 6 both cover the years c. 1750 CE - c. 1900 CE. This time period contains four Key Concepts. Imperialism and Migration are the most important in Unit 6. Industrialization is a key element of context.
Industrialization changed the production and consumption of goods, and this had profound effects on the global economy, social organization, and culture.
Imperialism: Industrial states expanded or created overseas empires, established new colonies and transoceanic relationships.
Revolutions: An intense period of revolutions and rebellions against existing authorities began in the middle of the 1700s. Some of these revolutions produced new nation-states around the world.
Migration: Global migration patterns change dramatically as many more people migrated across larger distances than previously occurred.
💡 STUDY TIP: Use the following essential questions to guide your review of this entire unit. Keep in mind, these are not meant to be practice essay questions. Each question was written to help you summarize the key concept.
How did racist ideas result from and contribute to imperialism?
How did the global balance of power shift in the 1800s?
How did indigenous people respond to and influence Imperialism?
How did environmental factors affect the global economy in the 1800s?
How did global capitalism provide advantages to some and disadvantages to others in the 1800s?
Why did millions of people migrate in the years from 1750 to 1900?
How did economic factors contribute to patterns of migration in the years from 1750 to 1900?
💡 STUDY TIP: These are the concepts and vocabulary from period 6 that would be most useful on the exam. Create a quizlet deck to make sure you are familiar with these terms!
