Reprint of first edition. A member of the Columbia faculty, Goodnow was the first individual in the United States to hold a professorship in administrative law. His major work, this book analyzes the distinction between 'politics' and'administration'. According to Goodnow, politics is concerned with policy and other expressions of state will. Administration is concerned with the faithful execution of enacted legislation. He observes that administration has a tendency to overstep this boundary and concedes that politics must therefore monitor administration to keep it in line with the people's will.
