The book is devoted to the EU foreign policy, its political, military and economic aspects. While the key role of the EU in global economy is beyond any doubt, its external political and military capabilities remain to be much less pronounced. They are still incomparable to the EU's impact on the global economy due to several reasons. The WWII results for Europe, as well as for Japan, became a strong anti-war vaccine demonstrating that, by cutting military expenses, one can promote economic development. USA, willingly and to their own benefit, proclaimed themselves the warrantor of Western Europe’s security, turning the European foreign policy into the function of the policy of Washington. Creation of NATO, dominated by the US, sealed the role of USA as the leading antagonist of Moscow in the Cold war.
