This volume is a presentation of the doctrinal and practical aspects of the problem of judicial control over administrative boards and commissions. For the purpose of example and to present a stereoscopic view of the development of administrative justice in the United States, the two preeminent and independent commissions of the Federal government charged with the regulation of trade and transportation are treated in some detail. Separate chapters are devoted to the Interstate Commerce Commission from its inception in 1889 and to the Federal Trade Commission from its beginnings in 1914, with particular reference to the relations of these commissions to the courts during the decade from 1920 to 1930 in order to disclose the nature of the judicial control and the measure of authority allowed the administrative bodies.
