Nationalism & Imperialism

Nationalism is the devotion and loyalty to ones own nation. It lead to imperialism because some countries like Britain, took nationalism to meaning that they were the best country and race in the whole world. So buy imperialising other countries, to a certain extent, they believed that they were truly helping them, but in the end it usually ended in the other country being left worse than before they came.
