Under the political theory of the liberal state, there is no adequate traditional justification for contracts of adhesion. Professor Macneil seeks to locate their legitimacy in the nature of modern bureaucracy. He demonstrates how this mode of legitimation sets limits for government intervention. In his conclusion, Professor Macneil emphasizes the significance of his analysis for a fuller understanding of the validity and the complex operation of contracts of adhesion.
