Description

Government agencies regulate Americans in the full range of their lives, including their political participation, their economic endeavors, and their personal lives. As a result, administrative power is a pervasive feature of American life. But is this power constitutional?

A similar sort of power was once used by English kings, and this book shows that the similarity is not a coincidence. In fact, administrative power revives absolutism, and on this foundation, the book explains how administrative power is profoundly unconstitutional. In one way after another, it denies Americans the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution, including procedural rights such as juries and due process. No other feature of American government violates more constitutional provisions or is more profoundly threatening. As a result, administrative power is the key civil liberties issue of our era.
