Anyone working with government needs to know the answers to these questions. Administrative Law: The Sources and Limits of Government Agency Power concisely examines the everyday challenges of administrative responsibilities and provides students with a way to understand and manage the complicated mission that is governance. Written by leading scholar Daniel Feldman, the book avoids technical legal language, but at the same time provides solid coverage of legal principles and exemplar studies, which allows students to gain a clear understanding of a complicated and critical aspect of governance.
“Dan Feldman’s writing style is informal and clear, almost as if he were having a conversation with his readers. The closing format for each chapter and the vivid examples are engaging, as they are often readily related to contemporary events and problems."
“Administrative Law: The Sources and Limits of Government Agency Power is conversational and informative. It makes the difficult topics of administrative law clear and readable.”
“One of the major strengths of Feldman’s book is that is it eminently readable. It flows easily, is engaging and not at all difficult to follow. I especially like the real life examples. They are useful additions, enabling the reader to take the concepts set forth in each chapter and see how they can be applied, while including follow-up information about how courts viewed the administrators’ actions.”
