“The new edition of Administrative Law in the Political System, by Professor Kenneth F. Warren, reminds us of the wide-ranging importance of administrative law in the American system of government. The text, up-to-date into the Obama era, is a lucidly written and thorough guide to the subject of administrative law. The text is well organized and presents clearly and completely the theories and practice of administrative law. Included are the major constitutional principles, significant statutes in the federal administrative system, and relevant and informative court opinions showing judicial review of administrative decisions. This fifth edition keeps pace with current issues with crucial material on balancing individual liberties and societal interests in security. It includes ‘administrative’ searches and seizures in light of the USA Patriot Act passed in the aftermath of the Terrorist Attacks of 9/11, and the decline of the right against self-incrimination in the rise of the ‘administrative state.’ The interplay of constitutional rights and administrative procedures is well-developed throughout the book and makes the book an important contribution to understanding the essentials of the American style of governance.”—Michael A. Wolff, Supreme Court Judge, Supreme Court of Missouri
"A masterpiece in enlivening administrative law. This is the 'go to' book for faculty seeking answers to administrative law questions and a superb comprehensive administrative law text for MPA, MPP, and political science courses."
--David H. Rosenbloom, City University of Hong Kong and American University
“Professor Warren has produced a new edition of his excellent text that retains considerable strengths of previous editions while exploring significant recent developments. His choice of systems theory as the theoretical foundation is both wise and well-informed, accomplishing the daunting task of giving structure and coherence to an otherwise sprawling body of knowledge. His command of the major topics and the literatures that illuminate them—both established and cutting-edge—is nothing short of extraordinary. The book is full of original insights, trenchant observations and sound judgment; only the rare scholar of Professor Warren's erudition and talent could sustain all three qualities in a single book. It includes a number of features, including, notably the ‘comments’ and ‘questions’ sections at the end of this chapter, that are useful resources for instruction and learning. This book is a major contribution to our understanding of the complex interactions between law and politics as they collide in the crucible of contemporary administrative processes.”
--Cornelius M. Kerwin, President, American University
