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 and Research Book News
—A careful blending of text and commentary by the authors with official materials (court cases, laws, administrative rulings and decisions)
—Written for undergraduate and beginning graduate students as an introduction to public administration and a selection of important issues in administrative law.
—An up-to-date treatment of the subject that includes classic materials in the field that still have an important impact on the law's application, but also includes recent developments such as The Patriot Act.
