Chapter Summary

The main purpose of this chapter is to present the case in support of the proposition that US-led globalization paved the way for the emergence of EU bloc imperialism. It is divided into three parts, which first engages in a discussion of some relevant theoretical issues concerning regional blocs, second, assesses the rise of the European and ACP blocs, and third, analyses the exercise of US hegemony over the European Union. Second, it focuses on the coming to fruition of the EU, followed by a discussion on the emergence of the ACP Group of States. Third, it analyses the manner in which the US exercised its hegemony over the EU. World War II dismantled individual European colonial empires, and catapulted the US and the former USSR to the leadership of the so- called capitalist free world and socialist/communist world, respectively.

Keywords: ACP blocs; EU bloc imperialism; European Union; US hegemony; US-led globalization
