Summary The Public's Law shows how bureaucracy can advance democracy. It develops a Progressive understanding of law and politics from American thinkers' transformation of German theories of the state, emphasizing that the state must provide the goods people need to participate in democratic politics. Using examples from the New Deal and the Civil Rights Era, the book develops a normative theory with implications for deliberative democratic theory, constitutional theory, and administrative law.
