Imperialism is a policy and/or ideology of extending the rule over other peoples and countries, for extending political and economic access, often through employing military force, to a lesser extent also "soft power". It is related to the concept of colonialism. The concept of imperialism arose in the modern age, associated chiefly with the European colonial powers of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries.
