Original Preface
The growing importance of public law in the United States has broughtthe subject to the attention of both lawyers and laymen. Yet the termpublic law has acquired no definite content and is not found among thestandardized headings employed in law books. The definition adoptedfor the purposes of this volume is neither original nor universally agreedto, but it provides a simple basis for selecting the subjects to be treated.It fits, moreover, into the generic pattern of Anglo-American law whichhas developed around relationships rather than entities. The term publiclaw is used here in contrast with the term private law and is meant tocomprise the law governing relationships to which states and their agen-cies become parties. This definition, it is true, excludes certain materialoccasionally referred to as public law; but it includes, nevertheless, manymore topics than can be dealt with in the available space. The subjectstreated in the following pages, therefore, do not exhaust the list, butthey appear to the author to be among the most important. Anothermight well have varied from this choice.Criminal Law, which should otherwise have been included, is treatedin a separate volume of this series.Howard L. Bevis, 1939
