Aggressive Nationalism – With the increase in colonial competition in the 19th century, the European powers became more and more aggressive in pursuance of their trade interests. Each power was determined to expand its territories and gain new colonies at the expense of the other. As a result, the political atmosphere in Europe became explosive.
Imperialism – Establishing an empire had become both a financial necessity and a status symbol for the European powers. Nations like England, France, Germany, Italy, Russia and Japan were competing with each other, both individually and in alliances, to establish ever larger empires across Asia and Africa.
