2.0 out of 5 stars Not a book at all, 29 Oct. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cases and Materials on Constitutional and Administrative Law (Paperback)
To me a (academic) book is a collection of reasoning thoughts that helps the reader to understand the subject matter. This book is really just a collection of cases and quotes that are quite difficult to read. The authors, if you can call them that (because they simply quote others most of the time) really do very little writing at all. The is almost no analysis in this book. It is just a collection of other people's writings.

I wasted about 6 hours of my life trying to read this rubbish. This book was a required reading on my course, but I sent it back.

I can only assume this is a case of academics recommending other people's books. It get's 2 stars because it does contain a lot of cases on the subject... but you have to make your own analysis.

Simply rubbish.
