At intervals of one year from each other, Saskia Sassen’s latest books "A Sociology of Globalisation" (2008) and "Territory, Authority, Rights" (2009) have been published in translation, making them available to Italian readers. This article sets out to make a critical appraisal of the research conducted by the Dutch sociologist and, in particular, of her theoretical input to the sweeping debate taking place in political and social sciences about how processes of globalisation have impacted on modern legal and political structures. Differing from mainstream literature, Saskia Sassen suggests we consider the role played by the state as a fundamental benchmark for the production of the political and institutional conditions that enable globalisation to happen. For this purpose, she identifies the theoretical category of ‘de-nationalisation’, which she uses to describe the beginning of a process of redefining the modern political and legal topology in which the state does not play the role of the pure sacrificial victim.
