THE CONCEPT OF "IMPERIALISM": THE HISTORY OF THE DEVELOPMENT

Iuliia Gudova [1]

5 20

In the context of politics in the contemporary world, the concepts of "empire" and "imperialism" are increasingly used. The study of imperialism becomes an important and urgent issue. We propose to consider the concept of "imperialism" as a notion and a phenomenon.

The notion of "imperialism" was appeared in the second half of the XIX century. "Imperialism" was understood as "the desire of the state to expand its territorial (colonial) possessions, mainly in other parts of the world". The notion of "imperialism" was elaborated to define the dominant policy of the empire. Then this notion began to be used to refer to the policy of colonial empires. Through this concept has acquired independent features and later separated from the phenomenon of the empire. In the post-colonial world, we can talk about the imperialism of territories that are not empires; including scientist can speak about internal imperialism in the territory of one country.

At the turn of the XIX and XX centuries “Imperialism” began to be understood as the equivalent of colonialism, including as the colonialism of maritime powers. This led to both basic provisions for understanding "imperialism": political and economic. The concept of "imperialism" has acquired a new meaning in the Marxist approach, where imperialism has become synonymous with capitalism.

In Russian science, imperialism is more often understood as an economic phenomenon - the highest stage of capitalism with a negative connotation, and in West European and in American science it is understood as a political phenomenon - the desire of the country to expand its territory or zone of its influence.

In the middle of the twentieth century, a new round of the concept of "imperialism" development began. In addition to political and economic meaning, the military and the cultural one have begun to be defined.  Now scientists have a discussion about military imperialism and cultural imperialism. In addition to cultural imperialism, Galtung singled out communication imperialism, which has become increasingly intense due to actively developing globalization.

After we observed the history of the concept of imperialism, we can conclude that due to the formulation of the contextual variables of the "imperialism" concept it is used in different historical contexts, and not only in relation to the colonial and post-colonial period. Today the notion of imperialism is filled with new meanings connected with the domination of the four most important aspects of interstate interaction: military, political, economic and cultural.
