Part II Quotations: For each of the following quotes, identify the speaker, if known, or the point of view.

__________James Monroe__________ [We assert] as a principle in which the rights and interests of the United States are involved, that the American continents, by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintain,

are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European powers. ____Cecil Rhodes _(Eruopean superiority)_______________ We are the finest race in the world, and the more of the world we inhabit, the better it is for the human race.

__________Herbert Spencer (Social Darwinism)__________ If they are sufficiently complete to live, they do live, and it is well they should live. If they are not sufficiently complete to live, they die, and it is best they should die.

_______Rudyard Kipling_____________ Fill full the mouth of Famine And bid the sickness cease; And when your goal is nearest The end for others sought, Watch Sloth and heathen Folly Bring all your hope to naught.

_____scramble for Africa- European colonization and exploitation justification There are some who say we have no right to Africa at all, that it belongs to the natives. I hold that our right is the necessity that is upon us to provide for our ever-growing population. . . . Nor do we deprive the natives of their birthright of freedom, to place them under a foreign yoke. It has ever been the keynote of British colonial method to rule through and by the natives.

Part III Sequencing: Place the following in chronological order. Consider how one event leads to another and try to determine the internal logic of each sequence.
