This book of essays celebrates Mark Aronson's contribution to administrative law. As joint author of the leading Australian text on judicial review of administrative action, Aronson's work is well-known to public lawyers throughout the common law world and this is reflected in the list of contributors from the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. The introduction comes from Justice Michael Kirby of the High Court of Australia. The essays reflect Aronson's interests in judicial review, non-judicial grievance mechanisms, problems of proof and evidence, and the boundaries of public and private law. Amongst the contributors, Peter Cane, Elizabeth Fisher, and Linda Pearson write on administrative adjudication and decision-making, Anita Stuhmcke writes on Ombudsmen, and Robin Creyke and John McMillan, the Commonwealth Ombudsman, write on charters, codes and 'soft law'. There are evaluations of the profound influence of human rights law on judicial review from the UK by Sir Jack Beatson and Thomas Poole and from Canada by David Mullan. Matthew Groves and Chief Justice James Spigelman address developing themes in judicial review, while Carol Harlow, Richard Rawlings, Michael Taggart and Janet McLean follow Aronson's interests into the private side of public law. An American perspective is added by Alfred Aman and Jack Beermann.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Engaging and searching, this festschrift is a worthy tribute to its honorand, Emeritus Professor Mark Aronson...The book's likely readership is wide, not confined to Australian administrative law scholars but extending broadly to those with an interest in public law...The book is exceptionally rich in coverage and ideas. It is eminently readable, from cover to cover or selectively as a resource for teaching and research. It is a substantial contribution to public law scholarship, as befits its honorand. Nicola Franklin University of New South Wales Law Journal Volume 32 (1) the volumes provide a wide audience for many erudite and deserving papers. They provide an oppurtunity for public lawyers to dip in to other jurisdictions and to identify commonalities and the helpful foreign reference. Tom Hickman, Blackstone Chambers Judicial Review 2009 This collection of essays on administrative law, which responds to Mark Aronson's interest over his academic career, constitutes a very interesting tool for the reader interested in administrative law in the common law jurisdiction. The questions raised by Justice Michael Kirby of the High Court of Australia in the introduction of this book, can be the inspiration for further scientific thought and research. V. Theophylaktou European Review of Public Law Volume 21_3, 2009
