Taking a case method approach, Administrative Law and Politics uses up-to-date cases and commentary to expound on the principles of administrative law, while providing springboards for classroom debate. The text also provides an excellent balance between law and policy/politics that gives both practicing public administrators and students preparing for a career in public administration important insights into the real world politics behind the rules of administrative law.
