This trusted text provides students who plan to enter government service and those engaged in mid-career education for public administration with a readable and interesting treatment of the field of administrative law, and more broadly of the range of public law that governs public management. The book is based on the premise that there is a complex, ongoing interaction between law and administration in the United States , and that administrative law problems are not only legal but also administrative and political. Recognizing that attacks on rules and administrative law processes over the last two decades have made this a difficult time for public managers and have resulted in a variety of new state and executive orders, the authors explain the sources, operation, and consequences of such changes. The book takes the role of public contracting seriously throughout and engages contemporary challenges that arise in governance, including in nonprofit and for-profit organizations working with government.

A Practical Handbook for Public Administrators Despite the sizeable literature on administrative law and the courts, few books adequately demonstrate how judicial decisions have transformed American public administration thought and practice. Public Administration and Law is the first book of its kind to comprehensively examine the impact of judicial decisions on the enterprise of public administration. A practical guide for practitioners, this book goes beyond a theoretical framework and provides concrete advice for real-world situations. Rather than abstractly and generally discuss doctrines such as procedural and substantive due process, the book analyzes their application to specific contexts in which administrators engage individuals. Written in a non-technical fashion, the volume discusses contemporary federal administrative law and judicial review of agency action (or inaction). It clearly explains the general framework that controls agency rule making, adjudication, release of information, and related issues. In addition, a section is included on the burgeoning and litigious field of environmental law, and advice is presented as to what public administrators need to know about environmental regulations and what can happen to those who fail to head them. Now in its second edition, this handbook is a must for public administrators who want to successfully avoid judicial scrutiny and challenge of their official actions.

A comprehensive overview and resource for public administration students and practitioners. This book is a combination of an introduction to basic legal principles, analysis of excerpts from instructive cases, and practical advice. It is an original approach to learning about law for those who work for the public good, the culmination of more than twenty-five years of research, study, counseling, law reform work, and reflection on what the law is and should be and how this can be explained to any reasonably thoughtful person. The book combines substantive coverage of law subjects likely to be encountered in public administration, analysis of illustrative cases, and practical advice. It distills and simplifies complex topics and combines legal theory with practical realities. The book describes the general nature of the laws, cases, and legal principles that public administrators are most likely to encounter. It begins by considering the sources of rules that govern our behavior, the evolution of formal law, and formal sources of law in the United States legal system. The next several chapters discuss constitutional law principles, providing an overview of important issues and analyzing important illustrative cases. The next several chapters follow a similar approach to the main law subjects likely to be encountered in public administration. The remaining chapters cover practical matters, including public ethics, how to deal with lawyers, and how to do legal research.

As a result of a lifetime of incomparably wide-ranging investigations, Aaron Wildavsky concluded that politics in the United States and elsewhere was a patterned activity, exhibiting recurring regularities. Political values, beliefs, and institutions were neither endlessly varied, nor haphazardly organized. They tended to exhibit a limited range of variation, and were organized in discoverable, predictable ways. In Cultural Analysis, the fourth collection of his essays posthumously published by Transaction, Wildavsky argues that American politics, public law, and public administration are the contested terrain of rival, inescapable political cultures.Analysts of American politics distinguish liberals from conservatives and Democrats from Republicans, but do not explain how these categories of political allegiance develop, maintain themselves, or change. Wildavsky offers a cultural-functional explanation for ideological and partisan coherence and realignment. Wildavsky also felt that these dualisms did not adequately capture the ideological and partisan variation he observed on the political landscape. Like others, he detected another recurring strain of political allegiance: that of classical liberalism or libertarianism. People of this political stripe valued freedom more than equality (the primary political value of contemporary liberals), and also more than order, the primary political value of conservatives.The value of Wildavsky's reconceptualization of the ideological and social foundations of political conflict, compromise, and coalition is assessed here by Wildavsky's former colleagues and students at the University of California, Berkeley: Dennis Coyle, Richard Ellis, Robert Kagan, Austin Ranney, and Brendon Swedlow.

He argues that the concept of family resemblances, as that concept has been refined and extended in prototype theory in the contemporary cognitive sciences, is the most plausible analytical strategy for resolving the central problem of the book. In the solution proposed, religion is conceptualized as an affair of "more or less" rather than a matter of "yes or no," and no sharp line is drawn between religion and non-religion."--BOOK JACKET.

The Fifth Edition of this path-breaking course book maintains the organization familiar to its many users. Following an introduction to the history, institutional context and theory of administrative law, students are exposed to four main topics: the political control of administration by Congress and the Executive Branch; formal agency processes for lawmaking; adjudication and rulemaking; government access to and required disclosure of information; and judicial remedies for official illegality. Doctrinal analysis is enriched by case studies of the law in action in particular administrative contexts and attention to the deregulatory and devolutionary trends that are reshaping American Administrative Law.

Seven experts in the field of public administration have collaborated to create a singularly unique work that draws on their wide experience in issues regarding public policy, the emergence of women and minorities in government employment, organizational theory, international negotiations, environmental policy, comparative and development administration, and public finance. The authors hold varied perspectives that yield a balanced and comprehensive view of the challenges that await public administrators in the new millennium. Although diverse perspectives are useful in a textbook, they must be combined into a coherent whole that embodies consistent themes and a continuity of ideas. Therefore, after each author initially prepared, reviewed, and revised his or her respective chapters, the lead author subsequently revised the entire manuscript again to ensure its readability and consistency. "Thus, although the book has many authors," as the preface states, "it is a single work with a clearly articulated set of guiding themes, stronger for its diversity but also effective as a unified volume."

Deutsch Beschreibung: Thema dieses Bandes ist der Rechtsschutz auf dem Gebiet des Verwaltungsrechts in England durch tribunals und deren Reform. Diese einfach klingende Umschreibung ist wenig aussagekraftig, da schon der Begriff tribunal in der englischen Rechtswissenschaft bisher nicht definiert werden konnte - zu vielfaltig waren ihre Erscheinungsformen, zu unterschiedlich ihre Aufgaben und Verfahrensweisen. Mit dem Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 c.15 hat der englische Gesetzgeber erstmals den Versuch unternommen, die administrative justice landscape zu systematisieren und zu rationalisieren. Diese Arbeit untersucht dieses Reformvorhaben und widmet sich dabei vor allem der Frage, wie sich das Verhaltnis der im Rahmen der Reformen neu geschaffenen tribunals zu den ordentlichen Gerichten darstellt, die seit jeher durch die Ausubung ihrer supervisory jurisdiction Verwaltungsrechtsschutz gewahren. English Description: This work deals with tribunals and administrative justice in England and their reorganisation following the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 c.15. From the German perspective, this description of the issue is not very telling, since, in the past, even for English lawyers, the term "tribunal" was not easy to define: Too diverse were their tasks, too different their organisation. With the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 c.15, for the first time, this has changed dramatically. This work, then, shows the significance of the changes against the background of the historical development of tribunals as an essential element in the English administrative justice landscape, and tries to assess the relevance which the newly created structure of tribunals could have on the future progress of administrative law in England. Therefore, it particularly focuses on the relationship between the new Upper Tribunal and the supervisory jurisdiction of the High Court, as it was outlined by the Supreme Court in the recent decision R (on the application of Cart) et al.
