the results of pressures on empires intensified the stakes of              competition
heightened the cycle of                          wars

in particular the neo-              , the new model colonies
eventually meant a global fiscal crisis

"The French and              War"
as it is known in the United States

was really the first            war
saw fighting from              to Montreal
the first moment in which empires began to          colonies and territories as part of a peace process

France passed its Canadian colonies onto what appeared to be the immediate winner of this global contest, Great Britain
Spain
occupations of several of its prime colonies including huge            stations in Havana and Manila
but Spain and France would wait for their moment to get their revenge on the British
British victory was                victory

especially India
what happened in 1776 was the            of its kind
possessions would break loose, beginning with the American colonies which was, however, relatively            at the time
the breakaway of the colonies invoked a new,                  model
it was a defense of the                rights of free born Englishmen against the caprice of King George III
against unjust fiscal laws
result was that the American revolutionaries, without intending it to be this way, had worldwide                           
1. created a new model of self-determination, an idea that people were                with rights to determine who governed them
2. once the old British state ceased trying to constrain encroaching on the wilderness and Indians, the constraints on                expansion were lifted
British no longer needed to have formal control over the colonies
looked at them now as a
