Answer

The people of the Non-Western World experienced a painful crisis of identity at the hands of European imperialists, primarily due to the power as well as the arrogance of their white intruders.
The initial response of the people of Africa and Asia was to attempt to drive out the intruders.
Sadly, violent anti-foreign reaction was put down savagely by the superior military technology of the Europeans.
Unable to defeat the Europeans militarily, many conquered people worked to preserve their own culture from westernization while others, such as Ismail of Egypt, concluded that the West was indeed superior, and that his society should be reformed accordingly.
Over time, those who wished to modernize their culture rather than preserve it won out.
The masses of people in Asia and Africa were accustomed to doing as they were told by their leaders hence they often smoothly followed the rule of European taskmasters.
Still, European domination was an edifice built on sand, as there were always some determined personalities who opposed European domination.
The sedate masses followed them to varying degrees.
Reasons for opposition innate desire for human dignity.
Opponents of imperialism felt that they were robbed of that dignity by their foreign rulers.
Liberalism and its claims of civil liberty and political self determination, hallmarks of the Western world, were fodder for those opposed to foreign rule.
Local opponents were willing to embrace modern nationalism every people had the right to control its own destiny.
