9780314303875: Legal Foundations of Public Administration

The third edition of this highly respected textbook introduces students of public administration to the practical issues of administrative law. While useful to law school students, it is most relevant to public management students. The presentation provides a concise foundation to the history and theory of administrative law, rule making, and judicial decisions. The most important issues in administrative law are included―meaningful issues for present and future administrators. A larger number of recent cases and other up-to-date information will be found in the book in order to make the student aware of the kinds of legal problems likely to be encountered in public agencies. One or two cases illustrate each problem at hand, rather than discussing numerous arcane court decisions and technicalities of legal procedure, in order to sketch the broad contours of the present law.

About the Author:

Donald D. Barry is professor emeritus at Lehigh University. He is the author of Russian Politics: The Post-Soviet Phase.
Howard R. Whitcomb is emeritus professor of political science at Lehigh University. He is the co-author of Judicial Administration: Text and Readings.

Review:

Recent cases and other developments since the last edition 15 years ago provide a substantial update to Barry and Whitcomb's introductory administrative law text, useful to law students as well as those studying public management. The authors focus not on a comprehensive reading of the law but rather on the kinds of legal problems that administrators are most likely to be confronted with. (Reference & Research Book News)
