Alfred C. Aman, Jr., here examines how the U.S. public law system has adapted to change and how the regulatory structures and discourses of the past are being transformed by the global realities of the present. Tracing the evolution of administrative law during the regulatory eras of the New Deal and the environmental period of the 1960s and '70s as well as the current global deregulatory era that began with the Reagan presidency, he illuminates key trends in the interpretation of constitutional and administrative law. In so doing, he provides insights into the process of legal change and the discourses that shape our legal order. Aman first analyzes the legal and political contexts of the New Deal and the environmental eras by focusing on two judicial review doctrines that typify them--the doctrine of deference in the New Deal and the hard look doctrine in the environmental era. Aman argues that these two approaches to judicial review were products of very different conceptions of progress and change in these periods and explains how courts chose between the two approaches when they reviewed agency deregulation of rules emanating either from New Deal agencies or from those dealing with environmental health and safety concerns. Focusing on the emergence of the doctrine of presidential deference, Aman then turns to the present era. He examines agency deregulation and increased executive power as responses to increased global competition and the changing political and economic perspectives it requires. He goes on to analyze how emerging global environmental and developmental issues may temper domestic regulatory and deregulatory discourses based on the demands of global competition. Administrative Law in a Global Era suggests how a complex global regulatory discourse that includes public interest components ultimately may provide the basis for future transformations of domestic and international public law. This timely book will be welcomed by legal scholars, political scientists, American historians, policymakers, and other readers interested in the history and future of administrative law and international and domestic environmental regulation.

This research handbook is a comprehensive overview of the field of comparative administrative law. The specially commissioned chapters in this landmark volume represent a broad, multi-method approach combining perspectives from history and social science with more strictly legal analyses. Comparisons of the United States, continental Europe, and the British Commonwealth are complemented by contributions that focus on Latin America, Africa, and Asia. The work aims to stimulate comparative research on public law, reaching across countries and scholarly disciplines. Beginning with historical reflections on the emergence of administrative law over the last two centuries, the volume then turns to the relationship of administrative and constitutional law, with an additional section focusing on the key issue of administrative independence. Two further sections highlight the possible tensions between impartial expertise and public accountability, drawing insights from economics and political science as well as law. The final section considers the changing boundaries of the administrative state – both the public-private distinction and the links between domestic and transnational regulatory bodies such as the European Union. In covering this broad range of topics, the book illuminates a core concern of administrative law: the way individuals and organizations across different systems test and challenge the legitimacy of public authority. This extensive, interdisciplinary appraisal of the field will prove a vital resource for scholars and students of administrative and comparative law. Historians of the state looking for a broad overview of a key area of public law, reformers in emerging economies, donor agencies looking for governance options, and policy analysts with an interest in the law/policy interface will find this work a valuable addition to their library.

After years of languishing in the long shadow of -values-, its 1960s-era substitute, public discussion and debate about virtues, vices, character, and ethics are occupying center stage once again. This book joins that debate in a way that is both practical and useful to undergraduate and graduate students who are being introduced to the full breadth of public administration in introductory courses, or specialized ones in administrative ethics. Intended as a supplement to major ethics texts, this book will help readers develop a thorough understanding of the principles of ethics so they will come away with a deeper appreciation of the challenges and complexities involved in negotiating the ethical dilemmas facing administrators in a twenty-first century democratic republic."
