A new edition of this classic text stresses current developments in administrative law geared especially for undergraduate and graduate social science students in public policy /public administration.. Written as the core text for the administrative law course in MPA programs, this comprehensive book uniquely places administrative law within the context of the political system. The focus is on how our public administrators shape and administer public policies while having to uphold procedural due process standards. The case approach is played down for a more direct, descriptive systems approach which stresses that administrative law can only be fully appreciated in the context of the pressures stemming from the larger political system. Administrative Law in the Political System 4th Ed, offers a descriptive, analytical approach making the subject more accessible for readers, as well as providing comprehensive coverage of administrative law, its principles, doctrines, and cases in a non-technical language. to not only legal demands, but also to socio-economic and political systemic demands. The book also covers both historical and the latest case law, as well as the most recent scholarly articles and political happenings in order to place administrative law in the most current context. Lastly, Warren examines the impact that neo-conservative politics, the judicially sanctioned federalist revival, and the post-9/11 mindset have had on the development of administrative law.
