This is the first volume in a new series of studies on administrative law (called “variations”), directed by five wellknown scholars of the subject. It is the author’s debut monograph, though she has to her credit various substantial essays on public goods and has gained experience abroad, including periods of study in Germany and the United States. This book was not, however, written simply as a means of obtaining a formal academic qualification, and it thus eschews the all too frequent descriptive survey approach that has characterised so many publications over the last half decade. The layout and structure are well defined and the thesis is original, namely that a panoply of administrative acts affecting private individuals have sprung up, giving rise to a new typology of acts (including both rulemaking and adjudications) so that the principal of contractual autonomy is not merely limited, but shaped and moulded by government authority. This work also has something of the “old” about it, and is reminiscent of methodological choices from the past, perhaps influenced by the author’s studies in Germany, or her early private law background. It is no coincidence that she frequently uses the terms “dogmatic” and “systematic”, now fallen into disuse. The approach is strictly juridical and, one might almost say, it even applies the old legal method, as the reasoning is elegant and almost mathematical, although it takes the concrete analysis of actual cases as a starting point.
