2001/03 - Beard Books - Law Classic
An early comprehensive treatment of the law applicable to public utilities.
This book is the first comprehensive treatment of the law applicable to public utilities. It is described by the author as a great and important development in the common law. It is based on the transition from industrial freedom to regulation which preserves private interests by reconciling them with the public right, i.e., control of the rates and practices of the utilities for the public good. "Although companies should be left as free as possible to work out their problems within the law, they should be warned that they must not go outside the limits which the law is fixing,” states the author. Detailed review of the law is set forth in two volumes within the broad categories of Establishment of a Public Calling; Obligations of Public Duty; Conduct of Public Employment; and Regulation of Public Service.
