Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'A compelling reworking of an administrative law classic. The first two editions of Law and Administration set new standards for empirically-grounded administrative law scholarship. Admirers of the text in its previous manifestations will quickly recognise the new edition's distinctive (and inimitable) interweaving of theory, doctrine and insightful case studies, all underpinned by meticulous research. This fascinating update demands attention from all those studying this fast-moving field.' Thomas Poole, London School of Economics and Political Science

'… a book at the core of the 'law in context' enterprise … It is enormously wide-ranging …' Edinburgh Law Review
