Administrative Discretion in Action : A Narrative of Eminent Domain, Paperback / softback Book

Administrative Discretion in Action : A Narrative of Eminent Domain Paperback / softback


This book is about changing the way we do public administration.

It is about the wielding of administrative discretion in the implementation of a constitutional power: eminent domain, taking private property for public use.

Administrative Discretion in Action: A Narrative of Eminent Domain, emphasizes the normative, constitutional perspective of public administration to study administrators' decision-making process that balances economic, political, and community interests-often in that order.

It is about facilitating dialogue between public officials and the public.

This book is a tool for interested scholars, practitioners, students, and community members about the dynamic of administration of public affairs in a political context.

Grounded in public administration theory, this book utilizes an in-depth, comprehensive analysis of the US Supreme Court's landmark 2005 decision in Kelo v.

New London-from the perspective of public officials and community members in the state of Connecticut (home of Kelo case)-to share a balanced narrative.
