Additional Book Details

Authors Christine B. Harrington and Leif H. Carter know that while bureaucratic government is no cure for the shortcomings of free enterprise, government oversight and regulation is crucial to keeping power within democratic boundaries. This Fifth Edition of Administrative Law and Politics shows the scope and power of administrative government and demonstrates how the legal system shapes administrative procedure and practice. Using accessible language and examples, the casebook provides the foundation that students, public administrators and policy analysts need to interpret the rules and regulations that support our legal system.


Offering a balance of case excerpts and commentary, this new edition and has been thoroughly updated to account for recent developments, such as

administrative law vis-à-vis freedom of information statutes, including the NSA’s surveillance program;
how administrators and judges navigate the philosophical, political, and economic stakes behind divisions in the Roberts Court’s judicial theory of statutes;
non-enforcement and government inaction, including the position of Administrative Law Judges (ALJ) and the federal government’s (Department of Education) Title IX policy on sexual assault, harassment, and other forms of sexual misconduct in education.
