This book was begun by Stanley de Smith in the 1950s as a doctoral thesis and then published in 1959. de Smith set out its aims in his original Preface as follows: "It is to be hoped that [this book] will be helpful to practitioners, to public administrators and their legal advisers, and to students and their teachers in England and elsewhere. And those students of government who are not lawyers may also find in it material that has a bearing on the larger issues inherent in the relationship between the Administration and the individual." De Smith's book was the first in the United Kingdom to describe and analyse this field of law with coherence. It quickly established a groundbreaking reputation here and in the Commonwealth. Professor de Smith produced two further editions in 1968 and 1973. After de Smith's untimely death, Professor John M. Evans (later Mr Justice Evans of the Federal Court of Canada) edited the 4th edition in 1980. When two of the present authors (Woolf and Jowell) were asked to prepare a 5th edition of the work in the early 1990s, it soon became clear that the initial intention, which was merely to update the existing edition, was insufficient. Prompted by reforms to the procedures and remedies, and also by a changing intellectual climate, the 1980s and early 1990s saw dramatic changes in judicial review: the number of applications increased from a few hundred a year to several thousand; the judicial reasoning which creates the grounds for challenging the validity of governmental action grew in its sophistication; and there was by then a burgeoning academic literature about this area of law. The 5th edition of the work (ISBN 0420466207) was published in 1995 (with the assistance of Andrew Le Sueur) and consisted of a substantial restructuring and supplementation of the 1980 edition. A supplement, updating the 1995 text, was published in 1998 (ISBN 0421607904)). An abridged version of the work, intended more as a student text, was published in 1999 under the title Principles of Judicial Review (ISBN 042162020 X).
