    This chapter, first, summarizes a geopolitical analytical position regarding the question of what the European Union is, via a longue-durée reading of the history of the emergence of the capitalist world-system as a global fact and the role of west European actors (states, capital and citizenries) in that process. Second, I outline three alternative scenarios for the near future of west European integration as it attempts to maintain, or perhaps even increase, its global economic weight in the face of significant historical difficulties and external competition.
