"Steven J. Cann proves that the study of administrative law need not be a dreary enterprise reserved only for boring bureaucrats and self-serving interest groups. Administrative Law, Third Edition is a lively text that students at all levels will find absorbing and relevant to the solution of many of the most difficult problems facing democratic government in the 21st century." 

(Albert P. Melone)

"It has useful insights to offer. Written by a political scientist, it aims to be accessible and avoid legalese. In this it succeeds."

From the Publisher Distinguishing features of this text:

Student-Friendly Conceptual Framework. The book is organized around a conceptual framework that contrasts democracy with the administrative state or “fourth branch of government” (significant policy making by insulated technocrats and bureaucrats).

Illustrative Cases. Each chapter begins with a scenario, or case in point, presented somewhat polemically, to pique the students' interest. These cases demonstrate the central point of the chapter, and, often, the student is referred back to that case to illustrate concepts throughout the chapter.

More Case Content. In contrast to other texts that use cases, this book includes more cases and more of each case so students can better grasp what led to the lawsuit and how the Court resolved it. In addition to the introductory case in point, the book presents cases throughout each chapter and chapters end with several more cases relevant to the chapter material. The cases in the middle of chapters tend to be “classics,” whereas the cases ending each chapter represent more recent decisions on the same points of law.

Summary of Doctrines. Each chapter includes a summary of administrative law doctrines, legal principles, and constitutional tests that students have gleaned from the cases presented in the chapter and that they should be able to apply to the end-of-chapter cases or to hypothetical cases.

Pedagogical Design. The book is designed to be compatible with a problem-solving pedagogical approach. Questions at the end of cases query students' understanding of doctrines, principles, and constitutional tests and whether the court applied those doctrines, principles, and tests; modified them; or ignored them. Also, the summary at the end of each chapter is compatible with a pedagogical approach that uses testing by hypothetical cases and requires students to outline. Case text from the courts is presented in a double-column format, which should make for easy reference to specific cases. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
