This book is about constitutional and administrative law. It has two themes. The ‘minor theme’ is that the content and direction of both are integrally related. The ‘major’ theme is that the nature and content of constitutional and administrative law can only be properly understood against the background of political theory which a society actually adopts, or against such a background which a particular commentator believes that a society ought to adopt. The book deals with public law in the United Kingdom and the United States.
