By bringing constitutional thought beyond the present crisis which national constitutions are experiencing the topics and questions raised in this collected edition, as summarised in the Introduction by Petra Dobner and Martin Loughlin, remain of the outmost importance despite the book being published 6 years ago. By crisis we mean both the loss of effectiveness of States’ law (and power, as facts and processes affecting governments at national and international level) and new methodological approaches to law, economics, politics, and so on. Since this book have been published, many other important works have come out, both in Italian and English, such as G. Teubner, Constitutional Fragments: Societal Constitutionalism and Globalization, Oxford, 2012; J.L. Cohen, Globalization and Sovereignty. Rethinking Legality, Legitimacy and Constitutionalism, Cambridge, 2012; G. Palombella, E’ possible una legalità globale? Il Rule of law e la governance del mondo, Bologna, 2012; H. Lindhal, Fault Lines of Globalization. Legal Order and the Politics of A-Legality, Oxford, 2013; G. Azzariti, Il costituzionalismo moderno può sopravvivere?, Roma-Bari, 2013; A. O’Donoghue, Constitutionalism in global contitutionalization, Cambridge, 2014; Aa., Vv., Costituzionalismo e globalizzazione, in Associazione Italiana dei Costituzionalisti, Annuario 2012, Napoli, 2014[1].
