This casebook emphasizes current doctrine and its historical evolution in exploring the four basic foundations of federal administrative law: separation of powers, statutorily and constitutionally required procedures for agency adjudication and rulemaking, scope of judicial review of agency action, and the availability and timing of judicial review. The book concentrates on federal rather than state administrative law, on the belief that an understanding of federal law can be translated into other settings if so desired. The book maintains the straightforward organization and don't-hide-the-ball presentation that has characterized the book since its inception. The Eighth Edition contains six new principal cases and numerous new notes on topics ranging from executive orders to the appointments clause to the definition of the record in informal proceedings. The book prominently continues, from the prior edition, to expand materials on statutory interpretation to accommodate the increasing inclusion of Administrative Law in the first-year curriculum.

This book presents a reassessment of the governmental systems of the Late Babylonian period—specifically those of the Neo-Babylonian and early Persian empires—and provides evidence demonstrating that these are among the first to have developed an early form of administrative law. The present study revolves around a particular expression that, in its most common form, reads ḫīṭu ša šarri išaddad and can be translated as “he will be guilty (of an offense) against the king.” The authors analyze ninety-six documents, thirty-two of which have not been previously published, discussing each text in detail, including the syntax of this clause and its legal consequences, which involve the delegation of responsibility in an administrative context. Placing these documents in their historical and institutional contexts, and drawing from the theories of Max Weber and S. N. Eisenstadt, the authors aim to show that the administrative bureaucracy underlying these documents was a more complex, systematized, and rational system than has previously been recognized. Accompanied by extensive indexes, as well as transcriptions and translations of each text analyzed here, this book breaks new ground in the study of ancient legal systems.

It is essential to cover California administrative law in an administrative law course in California. First, the clients of California lawyers are much more likely to have disputes with California state and local agencies than with federal agencies. Second, California administrative law is very different from federal law. In virtually every instance, these differences lie in the direction of protecting private business and individual interests rather than favoring the agencies. California Administrative Law is designed as a supplement to be used in the basic administrative law course. It could also be used as the text for an advanced course or seminar in California administrative law.

America's market-based health care system, unique among the nations of the world, is in large part the product of an obscure, yet profound, revolution that overthrew the medical monopoly in the late 1970s. In this lucid, balanced account, Carl F. Ameringer tells how this revolution came into being when the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress prompted the antitrust agencies of the federal government—the Federal Trade Commission and the Justice Department—to change the rules of the health care system. Ameringer lays out the key events that led up to this regime change; explores its broader social, political, and economic contexts; examines the views of both its proponents and opponents; and considers its current trajectory.
