Chapter 14 Section 3: New Rivals on the World Stage Africa Slave Trade The Dutch East India Trading Company Set up settlement in southern Africa, at the Cape of Good Hope, developed into a

permanent colony. The primary market for African slaves was in the Middle east, where most were used as domestic servants. Boers

Dutch famers, began to settle areas outside the city of Cape Town. Slavery in Africa has been occurring since ancient times.

Plantations grew and required more workers. Small American Indian populations in the New World could not supply the need. Indians were decimated by disease. African slaves were being shipped to Brazil and

the Caribbean to work on the plantations in the New World. Spanish ships carried the first boatload of African slaves directly from Africa to the New World in 1518. Growth in the Slave Trade

10 million slaves were transported to the Americas between the early sixteenth and nineteenth centuries? High death rates were one reason for the astonishing number of slaves being transported to the New World.

African slaves were packed into cargo ships. 300-350 per ship. Chained in holds without sanitary facilities or enough space to stand up.

The voyage took at least 100 days. King Affonso of Congo Complained his country was being depleted by the slave trade.

Local rulers in Africa view the slave trade as a source of income. African Middle Men Merchants, local elites, or rules who were very

active in the process and were often able to dictate the price and number of slaves to European purchasers. Effects of the Slave Trade Political effects of the slave trade The need to maintain a constant supply of

slaves led to increased warfare and violence as African chiefs and their followers, armed with guns acquired from the trade in slaves, increased their raids and wars on neighboring peoples. What happen to the nation of Benin in West Africa as a result of the slave trade?

Population declined and warfare increased, lost faith in gods, human sacrifices ,a corrupt and savage place. Society of Friends Also known as the Quakers, began to

criticize slavery in the 1770s, excluded from their church any member adhering to slave trafficking. The West in Southeast Asia Explain why Portugals efforts to dominate the trade of Southeast Asia was not successful?

Portuguese lacked both the numbers and the wealth to overcome local resistance and colonize the Asian regions. Their empire was too large and Portugal too small to maintain it. The Spanish were able to gain control of

the Philippines, which became a major Spanish base in trade. Arrival of the Dutch and English who were better financed was the primary threat to the Portuguese Empire in Southeast Asia? Explain how the Dutch succeeded in bringing

almost the entire Indonesian archipelago (group of islands) under their control? Dutch seized a Portuguese fort in the Moluccas (Indonesia) and the gradually pushed the Portuguese out of the Spice Trade. Malay States

Modern Day Malaysia Why were the mainland states better able to resist the European challenge than the states in the Malay world? Cohesive nature of the states.

The spice trade was enormously profitable. European merchants and rulers were determined to gain control of the sources of these spices. The French and British in India Mughals

Not natives of India, came from the mountainous region north of the Ganges River. Babur

It was Baburs grandson, who brought Mughal rule to most of India, creating the greatest Indian empire since the Mauryan dynasty nearly two thousand years earlier. Impact of the Western Powers

small British force numbering about three thousand defeated a Mughal-led army more than ten times its size. Seven Years War The British forced the French to withdraw completely from India.

Seven Years War, (175663), the last major conflict before the French Revolution to involve all the great powers of Europe. Generally, France, Austria, Saxony, Sweden, and Russia were aligned on one side against Prussia, Hanover, and Great Britain on the other.

The war arose out of the attempt of the Austrian Habsburgs to win back the rich province of Silesia, which had been wrested from them by Frederick II (the Great) of Prussia during the War of the Austrian Succession (174048). But the Seven Years War also involved overseas colonial struggles between Great Britain and France, the main points of contention between those two traditional rivals being the struggle for control of North America (the French and Indian War; 175463) and India.

With that in mind, the Seven Years War can also be seen as the European phase of a worldwide nine years war fought between France and Great Britain. Britains alliance with Prussia was undertaken partly in order to protect electoral Hanover, the British ruling dynastys Continental possession, from the threat of a French takeover. China Ming Dynasty

Western Roads Explain why the Manchu dynasty began internal decay. Military campaigns cost money, population growth led to economic hardships at the same time Europe was

increasing power for more trade. Lord Macartney Visited Beijing to press for liberalization of trade restrictions.

Emperor Qianlong Expressed no interest in British products. The Chinese would later pay for their rejection of the British request. Japan
