The unprecedented expansion of administrative law over the last two and a half decades has inspired a rich literature. This book is designed to meet some of the difficulties raised by the diversity of the literature. It offers a collection of essays on important and often contentious aspects of administrative law. The individual contributions, which are informed by a wide variety of theoretical perspectives, are drawn together by certain common themes: the constitutional role of judicial review, its efficacy as a mechanism for the regulation of government decision-making, and the scope and impact of alternative mechanisms.

Review:

`An excellent book covering all the main areas of concern for public lawyers today.'
Dr S. Juss, University of Westminster

`A very interesting and informative focus on a highly topical area of law.'
L. Jason-Lloyd, University of Derby

`Useful for a critical and contextual approach to a subject where orthodoxy tends to prevail.'
Ivan Hare, Trinity College, University of Cambridge

`An interesting, instructive series of essays providing a useful adjustment to the main textbook for the more conscientious student.'
David Gregory, University of Luton

`An excellent collection of essays and a welcome arrival!'
Shaun P.C. Mills, University of Central Lancashire

`This book is a stimulating and valuable addition to the literature on administrative law ... increasingly, and rightly, the law is being required to take account of the actual operation of the law at the administrative coal face. This book makes an important contribution in both those
areas.'
Cambridge Law Journal

`'a number of the essays offering new ideas and valuable analyses of key issues in administrative law and government. ..interesting and stimulating.''
Public Law

`'The contributions are well-coordinated...The essays are substantial, well-researched and authoritative. The polemical tone of many of them makes for interesting reading and the book should be accessible to students as well as providing a review of some basic issues for practitioners and
academics...All in all this is a stimulating collection of essays. It should be an essential component of a public lawyer's library.''
Social and Legal Studies

`'Immigration lawyers with time to read will find much of interest and relevance in this stimulating collection...Tje articles present a good mix of theory and empirical research and the book warrants the attention of anyone concerned about judicial review.''
Immigration and Nationality Law and Practice
