New imperialism was basically colonial expansion of European countries toward countries overseas.
European countries were always very competitive, as you can see from all the wars, we fought many in order to gain territories. By the age of new imperialism, we decided to move overseas. Think of it this way: the country who could get the most, is the coolest! Well, most powerful, I should say. :) This was accompanied by new technological advancements and developments, too.
