The California State Constitution: A Reference Guide
Greenwood Publishing Group, 1993 - Law - 372 pages
California's Constitution has been one of the most influential state constitutions historically and has been amended and interpreted in many different ways. This definitive and easy-to-use reference by a former justice of California's Supreme Court and two colleagues at Hastings College of Law should be a standard guide for lawyers, students, scholars, and for the citizenry to use in considering how to vote on ballot questions.
The volume opens with an overview of the development of the constitution since the early days and then provides an article-by-article and section-by-section analysis and full text of this body of law under which the state is governed. A selected bibliography, a table of cases, and a full index make this invaluable reference useful to a broad interdisciplinary audience for varied use.
