Overview

This book focuses on the essentials that public managers should know about administrative law—why we have administrative law, the constitutional constraints on public administration, and administrative law’s frameworks for rulemaking, adjudication, enforcement, transparency, and judicial and legislative review. Rosenbloom views administrative law from the perspectives of administrative practice, rather than lawyering with an emphasis on how various administrative law provisions promote their underlying goal of improving the fit between public administration and U.S. democratic-constitutionalism. Organized around federal administrative law, the book explains the essentials of administrative law clearly and accurately, in non-technical terms, and with sufficient depth to provide readers with a sophisticated, lasting understanding of the subject matter.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for the second edition:

“Rosenbloom crafted a compelling narrative, which creates student interest in administrative law. Students like Administrative Law for Public Managers because it is straightforward and easy to understand. I teach a wide range of students—mid-level managers to students with no work experience—both are relieved that the content and examples are easily digestible. It’s an excellent book!”
Lorenda Ann Naylor, University of Baltimore

"Administrative Law for Public Managers is extremely helpful for students in framing the difficult subject matter that is administrative law. Rosenbloom does a great job in the organization of the chapters, and in the reference materials used. This is one of the only textbooks in the administrative law field where a student can read through it and understand difficult concepts without many questions, and it is the only textbook I have found that covers rulemaking outside of a law school textbook. As a professor who is also a scholar of administrative law, Rosenbloom covers some of the most important topics for Administrative Law classrooms.”
Bradley Bjelke, California Lutheran University

Praise for the prior edition:

"This book presents a profound, as well as comprehensive knowledge base of administrative law."
Public Administration Review

"This book is a sophisticated and thorough treatment of administrative law for public managers, written by a legend in the field. It is written clearly and contains a trove of useful examples. It is a 'must read' for anyone seriously interested in the subject."
Rosemary O'Leary, Professor and Director, Ph.D. Program in Public Administration, The Maxwell School of Syracuse University

"The material in this text falls within a valuable 'middle range' between the laborious legal treatises that lose the practitioner graduate student of public administration, and the condensed legal summaries that fail to provide enough practical guidance. I had looked for a book like this one for many years, but hadn't found it— until now."
Christine Reed, Professor, School of Public Administration, University of Nebraska, Omaha

"With the characteristic insight and sound judgment his readers have come to expect, David Rosenbloom provides a clear and concise exposition of administrative law firmly anchored in the American constitutional tradition. This splendid book should be required reading for serious students of public administration."
John A. Rohr, Professor of Public Administration, Virginia Polytechnic Institute

    Great for students of public administration

    Very good book for students of public administration. If you've never been exposed to rulemaking or administrative adjudication, this is a good way to get an overview. I read this for a MPA class that focused on the law, which was very good. I'd recommend also checking out Rosenbloom's Constitutional Competence, which isn't available at B&N for some reason. But that book is one of the best I've read for my MPA degree so far.
