creation of an unequal relationship between states through domination

Imperialism is a policy or ideology of extending a country's rule over foreign nations, often by military force or by gaining political and economic control of other areas. Imperialism has been common throughout recorded history, the earliest examples dating from the mid-third millennium BC. In recent times (since at least the 1870s), it has often been considered morally reprehensible and prohibited by international law. As a result, propagandists operating internationally may use the term to denounce an opponent's foreign policy.The term can be applied - inter alia - to the colonization of the Americas between the 16th and 19th centuries - as opposed to New Imperialism (the expansion of Western Powers and Japan during the late-19th and early-20th centuries). Well-known examples of imperialism include the American invasion of Vietnam (1950s to 1970s) and Britain's occupation of India (17th to 20th centuries).
