Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Although I saw your question earlier, I thought an expert in History would answer it. At least, let's begin with a definition of "imperialism:"

1 : imperial government, authority, or system
2 : the policy, practice, or advocacy of extending the power and dominion of a nation especially by direct territorial acquisitions or by gaining indirect control over the political or economic life of other areas; broadly : the extension or imposition of power, authority, or influence <union imperialism>

imperial = 1 a : of, relating to, befitting, or suggestive of an empire or an emperor b (1) : of or relating to the United Kingdom as distinguished from the constituent parts (2) : of or relating to the Commonwealth of Nations and British Empire
2 a : SOVEREIGN b : REGAL, IMPERIOUS
3 : of superior or unusual size or excellence

Now for some websites on that subject:

3. http://www.michaelparenti.org/Imperialism101.html (interesting in that this site says it does not exist today!)

P.S. Essentially Lance gave you the same thing. If you are looking for input from us, we show you where to look, but not what to think of say. After you write your essay, feel free to repost for proofreading. Remember that we HELP but do not DO.
