From the Publisher"In reading the book, I found that it offered enlightening explanations of the included cases through a writing style that was clear and easily understandable."
"A significant proportion of the cases are very recent and many of the issues at stake in these cases are ones with which young students can identify. This is a major weakness in a lot of case books and an important strength of this one."
"The author does an excellent job of not only relating the facts of the case, but more importantly, explaining the relevance and importance of the case in the concise introduction to each case" "[CASES ON PUBLIC LAW AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION] will be an indispensable reference tool for scholars and a welcome and overdue pedagogical tool for instructors."
"[Cooper] has taken on a very difficult task in choosing cases from an incredibly complex and diverse field of law. He has chosen well, and managed to avoid making a huge and compendious volume in the process. He has avoided the style of the more traditional casebooks, first by choosing fewer cases to represent each core subject area, and second, by providing more text of ruling, concurring, and dissenting opinions in those cases, with careful editing to emphasize the chosen themes. In doing so, he captures more of their dialogical nature and evolutionary impact on public administration rather than focusing more narrowly on their black letter implications. His commentary nicely complements this approach by providing context as well as insight for each case. His contextual additions nicely capture the interplay among various institutions, not simply between the courts, petitioners, and respondents."
