          Although country's political stability was important, it was the economic and militaristic ambition of nations during modern world history that defined their global dominance, as this ambition drove nations to succeed. The industrial revolution dominated the European economy during the early 1800's, and at the forefront of this revolution was the British. The British were responsible for many inventions which sparked the industrial revolution's creation, for example they created the "Spinning Jenny" and other machines that helped to make manufacturing clothes easier. The British's role as a leader in this revolution helped to create a successful economy, and in turn established themselves as a global power. The British controlled much of the world's clothe making. The British were successful because of their economic ambition. They took a chance, creating new technology and breaking free from the traditional methods of clothe making, and it paid off as it led to the economic success, and global success of the British. Not only did economic ambition define global dominance during modern world history, but also militaristic ambition. Around the 1870's, Otto Von Bismark, the Chancellor of Prussia, was an established leader in Europe. He led a nationalist movement in Prussia, using his army to unite all the German and Austrian nations to create a Prussian Empire. Bismark's militaristic success was due to his ambition. He worked hard to bring his nation together to fight for  his nationalist cause, and he worked hard to  execute the capture of the territories around him, and this ambition led to the success that was the Prussian Empire. In modern world history, economic and militaristic ambition defined global dominance, as this ambition drove countries to success.
