Answer (1 of 3): "American Imperialism". I remember I studied something about that back in Russia. That was the year Soviet Army troops invaded Afghanistan.

Topic Website 1

American imperialism is a term referring to the economic, military, and cultural influence of the United States on other countries. The concept of an American Empire was first popularized during the presidency of James K. Polk who led the United States into the Mexican–American War of 1846, and the eventual annexation of the territories like California and the Gadsden purchase.[3][4]

Thomas Jefferson, in the 1780s, awaited the fall of the Spanish empire until “our population can be sufficiently advanced to gain it from them piece by piece.”[5][6] In turn, historian Sidney Lens notes that “the urge for expansion – at the expense of other peoples – goes back to the beginnings of the United States itself.”[3]

Effects labelled "cultural imperialism" occur without overt government policy.[citation needed]Stuart Creighton Miller says that the public's sense of innocence about Realpolitik impairs popular recognition of U.S. imperial conduct. The resistance to actively occupying foreign territory has led to policies of exerting influence via other means, including governing other countries via surrogates, where domestically unpopular governments survive only through U.S. support.[7]

2 Paragraphs

Describe the effects on the US expansion across the world

 

What impacts did expansion have on the US, what were the positive and negative impacts?

Tevon Gibson's insight:

There were effects on the US that was caused by the US expanding across the world. One thing that the US did to expand across America was the Louisiana Purchase. The US bought the land from Napolean. Another thing the US did was they annexed Hawaii. They took Hawaii from their people. Another thing that the US did to expand their country was they traded with China. We got to trade with China and have more resources instead of China just being closed out from the world. The fourth thing that America did to expand was they bought Alaska. With Alaska, we got to use the oil resources there and Russia would not miss that land since they have so much land. Lastly, the US expanded by getting more land from islands like the Philipines. We even had control over Guam and Puerto Rico too. To conclude, America acquired a lot of land by many reasons.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There were many impacts on the US that was caused by the US expanding across the world. One thing that the US did to expand across America was the Louisiana Purchase. The positive thing was the US got land.  The US bought the land from Napolean. Another thing the US did was they annexed Hawaii. It was negative that they took Hawaii from their people. It was good for the US since they had more land to plant crops. Another thing that the US did to expand their country was they traded with China. A negative thing would be that China would lose control. We got to trade with China and have more resources instead of China just being closed out from the world. The fourth thing that America did to expand was they bought Alaska. With Alaska, we got to use the oil resources there and Russia would not miss that land since they have so much land. Lastly, the US expanded by getting more land from islands like the Philipines. A negative impact was that those countries lost some of their control. We even had control over Guam and Puerto Rico too. To conclude, America acquired a lot of land by many reasons and there were positive and negative effects that happened with each area.

Tevon Gibson's insight:

Annotation:


This is a primary document. It is from the Anti-Imperialist League. They believed in not expanding America by annexating land. It was written October 18, 1899. It does not want to take over the Philippines. They think that they fought for their land and that it is rightfully theirs and not America's land.
