Product Description

The Regulatory State provides an introduction to federal administrative agencies, statutes, and regulations. The book is designed for a dedicated first-year course, but is suitable for upper level courses. Carefully- selected primary source materials expose law students to a broad range of legal sources, and enable professors to teach through concrete applications, in a way comparable to the “case method.” Logically organized, accessible, and up-to-date, The Regulatory State not only provides excellent coverage of traditional topics such as legislation and statutory interpretation, but also focuses on how agencies make decisions and how political forces shape those decisions.

A fresh and lively approach to a complex legal area, The Regulatory State features:

a logical and informative organization of chapters that progresses from the common law as a regulatory regime, the introduction of legislation, to the dynamics statutory of implementation by courts and agencies
a central example throughout the book—motor vehicle safety—that offers a familiar point of entry and enables professors to trace a single problem from beginning to end, helping to tie together various regulatory concepts
primary materials drawn from actual statutes, regulations, executive order, and other documents, alongside judicial decisions
the distinguished authors’ approach that highlights the tools and analyses that agencies, courts, and lawyers use
selected materials from the best legal and political science work explaining the behavior of Congress, agencies, and courts
contemporary and engaging excerpts from news articles, internet postings, and other media
an electronic version of the book, included, that allows users to select their preferred content format
