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

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

    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.
