This book aimed at describing the silent process of constitutionalization that still underpins the activity of the ECJ, and at analysing its effects. To this aim, the volume focused on the rationalizing mission that the Court has undertaken. The work is divided into seven chapters and represented the outcome of a long research period and last year, Advocate General Colomer made a reference to its pages in his conclusions on the case C-205/08, when recalling how the use of the preliminary reference “shaped the Union’s legal system”. This book has been reviewed in many national and international legal journals (Common Market Law Review, Rivista Trimestrale di diritto pubblico, Diritto pubblico comparato ed europeo, Civitas Europa, European Journal of Law Reform).
