I am a voracious reader on a wide range of subject. About 50 a year. This work ranks with the best, if not the best work I have read in the past 5 years. Outstanding in every respect.
Find out why agencies are in effect writing what is treated as law. In effect, power beyond the law.
A treasure in writing and very highly recommended.
Surprisingly enough, these ideas had been challenged and refuted, point by point, by what became known as the Austrian School of Economics starting with Carl Menger and the subjective theory of value.Read more ›
Professor Hamburger outlines the fact that administrative law (outside of very limited circumstances) is not only unconstitutional, but it is anti-constitutional as well. I recommend this book as a worthy legal history of administrative law and state simply that it should be in every serious scholar's library for both historical and legal purposes. I was so impressed that I purchased Hamburger's other book regarding the so-called "high wall" between church and state. Which is yet another amazing gem.
I found the book so compelling that I ran down to my local law library and insisted that they purchase it for public access, After researching the book,they did.
Philip Hamburger's books are a universes apart from the academic hacks (progressive-socialists/communists [same thing]) that permeate academia. An utterly delightful read. Worth every penny and then some. Buy a copy now before the "powers that be" ban the book. Only in America can you ban a book, but you cannot ban pornography. Apparently you only have the right to freedom of speech or expression when you are naked? Reason and logic are never applied by anyone, any more. So now we have been thrown the slop of administrative law, like a bunch of pigs (Animal Farm, Farm-speak). Administrative law is nothing more than a lexicon consisting of the cacophony of fascism, wrapped in the more palatable coating of legal sophistry, which is "rubberstamped" and approved by judicial technocrats. It may make a nice mix if you put it on the lawn or your roses. Philip Hamburger reveals that the king has no clothes.
