The second edition of Santi Romano`s book, The Legal Order, which is in its first English translation (2017), is a pioneering text of legal pluralism. She is interested in his extreme radicalism and the fact that his argument, although written by a lawyer, has many important political implications and addresses central conceptual issues in contemporary social law studies on legal pluralism. The social and political context of Romano`s book in early twentieth-century Italy is far from being of historical interest. The questions that surrounded his legal thought in his time resonate with important political and social issues today.
