How does the English government's attitude toward the Irish during the Irish famine in the late 1840's reflect the motivations for imperialism?

  • Global History -

    Obviously, the British didn't give a d**n about the Irish peasants. The British just wanted to take what they wanted from Ireland.

  • Global History -

    So, in this way, the British became imperialistic over Ireland? The British supressed Ireland's rebellions only to keep making the Irish export wheat and Barley?

  • Global History -

    Yep. The British treatment of the Irish wasn't the start of Britains imperialistic motives in Ireland.
