Description The review looks at a recent addition to the field of judicialization of politics: Cristina E. Parau’s book, in which she argues that judicialization in Europe has been a project driven by the transnational legal elite. The review argues that the book is a truly generalist interdisciplinary work, offering a clear and bold answer to each of the three fundamental issues of judicialization: the extent of judicialization, its cause, and its normative assessment. The strengths of the book however entail its main limitations. While Parau integrates an impressive breadth of data and concepts, at places their treatment lacks the necessary nuance and engagement with possible counterarguments.
