There are various answers that could be given depending on context. I would be willing to bet that your textbook contains that very sentence with the blank filled in. However, some possible answers would be; European conquest, national aggrandizement, rapid economic development, and growth in world trade. There could be others too. The "correct" answer depemds on what your teacher has been emphasizing. Michael Montagne
