This seminal book presents a fundamental reconsideration of modern American administrative law. According to Christopher Edley, the guiding principle in this field is that courts should apply legal doctrines to control the discretion of unelected bureaucrats. In practice, however, these doctrines simply give unelected judges largely unconstrained - and inescapable - discretion. Assessed on its own terms, says Edley, administrative law is largely a failure. He discusses why and how this is so and argues that law should abandon its obsession with bureaucratic discretion and pursue instead the direct promotion of sound governance.

Part 1 The structure of administrative law: introduction - the discretion problem and the continuing importance of separation of powers theory; an expository essay - the trichotomy of politics, science and adjudicatory fairness; the trichotomy's conceptual failings; scope of judicial review.
Part 2 Reconstructing administrative law: unsuccessful remedies for the futility of administrative law; a constructive essay - ""harder-look"" review; a speculative essay - from trichotomy to trio - and sound governance review.
