In modern legal systems, power is conferred upon government officials and agencies to be exercised in their discretion according to policy considerations, rather than according to precise legal standards. This legal and jurisprudential analysis of discretionary power emphasizes the consequences of discretion in the relationship between the individual and the state.

Review:

`Discretionary Powers is a pioneering work ... an impressive work of scholarship. It is ambitious in its overall objectives, extensive in its use of sources, full of interesting and useful insights, and clear and effective in many of its criticisms. [It is] work by a rare scholar who combines strengths in analytic jurisprudence and administrative law.' David Mullan, University of Toronto Law School `A very impressive achievement. Discretionary Powers will become a standard work of reference. It is well written, thorough and scholarly. For too long the area has been bedevilled by simplistic and ideologically motivated analysis. Discretionary Powers lays these to rest, provides a basis for clear thinking about the subject, and gives us a starting point for policy analysis, institutional studies and empirical research.' Professor Ross Cranston, Public Law From reviews of the hardback: `A valuable source for the further development of administrative law. This book will not date. It is not concerned with current fashions in administrative law and it should prove a solid long term investment in uncertain markets.' Sir Harry Wolff, Law Quarterly Review
