China's Imperialism

As China continued to struggle many European countries took advantage of the problems in China and they set up a sphere of influence in China. The United States had been a long time trading partner with China and with the growing number of European nations involved in China the United States feared that China would split up into several colonies. To avoid this problem the United States proposed the Open Door Policy and as a result China was able to avoid colonization.

As a result of the imeprialism in China the Chinese people started to hate the rights the foreigners had and so the Boxer Rebellion resulted. Some of the long term effects of imperialism include trying to democratization. Sun Yat-sen saw that Chinese people were in much disarray to already have order. As a result Yuan Shikai put order in China.

China had growing internal problems and as a result foreign countries were able to maintain control in China. As China's population grew so did internal problems. As hunger spread in China the Chinese became angry and so they revolted against the ruling Qing Dynasty. Soon this led to the Taiping Rebellion. With so many growing internal problems the foreign countries were able remain in power.

This area was imperialized as China was regarded as an area to receive luxury goods that were not available in the west. Europeans wanted many of the goods available in China while the Chinese did not want much from the Europeans. However later on one product, Opium, became popular among the Chinese. This popularity that Opium gained allowed for trade with the Chinese for the Europeans. So at last the Europeans were able to trade with the Chinese and get the products they wanted.

All of China was imperialized by various countries including Portugal, France, Germany, Spain, Japan, the Netherlands, but primarily by England.
