The essay concerns he transformations of the political space and the changes of the State functions in the globalization process, focusing particularly on the recent debate about the Çempire-formÈ. Used in the International Relations research to describe the new role of Usa in the global political system after the Cold War, the ÇempireÈ idea has been recently at the center of a complex reflexion about the new sovereignty paradigm. The paper illustrates the attempt to overcome the limits of the old marxist State-debate and the imagine of a irreversible victory of the ÇmarketÈ over the State which has dominated the theorical reflexion in the last two decades. The study shows that the thesis of a definitive fulfilment of the work-market "until the end of the world" introduces in the analisys a strong determinism, vanishing the efforts of theorical revewal.
