An Introduction to American Administrative Law

Excerpt

The present edition is a revision of a volume which first appeared in 1958. Like the original version, it is based upon the conviction (underscored by the author's experience in testifying before the Franks Committee on Administrative Tribunals and Enquiries) that there is a real interest in Britain in administrative law developments on the western side of the Atlantic. This interest is more than a mere academic one in a country whose own administrative law is in a state of flux. The experience of a kindred people, whose system is grounded upon common-law traditions and techniques, may furnish useful analogies to those interested in further developing the British system.

The author has also, it must be stated, been motivated by an end more appropriate to his immediate academic pursuits as a professor of administrative law. A comparative presentation must focus on elementary fundamentals and be written in a lucid style for outsiders who have no detailed knowledge of the system described. But this is also the prime essential of a treatise written for law students. There is still no text which fulfils this requirement in the field of American administrative law. It is this writer's hope that the present work (expanded somewhat for the purpose) will meet the needs of those taking the elementary American law course in administrative law. True, it is only a summary introduction, not a detailed, lengthy treatise. Such an introduction, all the same, is precisely what is now lacking to the beginner in this field.
