In "Administrative Law for Public Managers" (2015) by David H. Rosenbloom the many facets of management and law in public administration are covered. Specifically, the facets of the United States Constitution, administrative rulemaking, and adjudication are developed. The government of the United States could not exist without the U.S. Constitution. For example, the U.S. Constitution dictates the separation of powers for government. They are the legislative branch, the executive branch, and the judicial branch. The legislative branch creates laws. The executive branch is the enforcer of the U.S. laws. The judicial branch is concerned with the administration of justice. Basically, Constitutional law is central to many administrative decisions and operations. Administrative rulemaking affects every American. For example, this rulemaking affects the purity of the food we eat, the water we drink, and the quality of the air we breathe. As far as administrative law, "Adjudication helps to ensure that agency decisions are based on correct factual premises" (p.102). As a facet, it promotes fairness, but also inefficiency (p. 120). Therefore, for public management, administrative law is important. This book does an efficient job of explaining administrative law. - Procopio
