"Professor Jaffe's treatise makes a valuable contribution to the subject of judicial control. Hopefully, it will lead to refinement of judicial techniques which will improve the quality of judicial review of agency action. This refinement should imbue in the agencies themselves a greater dedication to legal principles. Improved judicial control must be accompanied by internal strengthening of these agencies if we are really to perfect our administrative process.": Stuart J.
