BOOK REVIEW Postnational constitutionalism: Europe and the time of law by Paul Linden-Retek, Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2023, pp. 312, £90 (hardback), ISBN: 9780192899187. 'We must newly conceive the time of law. To do so, the book calls for a more temporally attuned constitutional theory that places a principle of anti-reification at the centre of its jurisprudential practice and its conception of power'. These are bold statements made by Paul Linden-Retek in the introduction to his monograph Postnational Constitutionalism: Europe and the Time of Law. The book is ambitious in its attempts at reinvigorating constitutional theory by critical philosophy including classic works of Hannah Arendt and Robert Cover and reconceptualising European constitutionalism by a shift to its temporal dimension. Most importantly, this shift in a theoretical perspective and method is expected to provide for 'the basis for a critical reconstruction' of European law and polity.
