“Revolutions” Opium War segment
BBC’s description of
“Making a Fortune”
Crash Course’s description of
The widespread use of opium in China
yielded high profits for British
exporters while crippling the Chinese
economy, ultimately erupting into the
Opium War.
Jeremy Paxman continues
his personal account of
Britain's empire... Jeremy
then heads to Hong Kong,
where British-supplied
opium threatened to turn
the Chinese into a nation
of drug addicts - leading to
the brutal opium wars, in
which Britain triumphed
and took the island of
Hong Kong as its prize.
“Imperialism” is a video in which John
Green teaches you about European
Imperialism in the 19th century. European
powers started to create colonial empires
way back in the 16th century, but
businesses really took off in the 19th
century, especially in Asia and Africa.
During the 1800s, European powers
carved out spheres of influence in China,
India, and pretty much all of Africa. While
all of the major (and some minor) powers
in Europe participated in this new
imperialism, England was by far the most
dominant, once able to claim that the
"sun never set on the British Empire."
Also, they went to war for the right to
continue to sell opium to the people of
China. John will teach you how these
empires managed to leverage the
advances of the Industrial Revolution to
build vast, wealth-generating empires…
