The Alabama State Constitution: A Reference Guide

Front Cover
Greenwood Publishing Group, 1994 - Law - 258 pages

This first comprehensive history and reference guide on the Alabama State Constitution fills a major gap in the literature needed by political scientists, legal and state historians, and lawyers. Stewart, an authority on the state's political and constitutional history, gives a short overview of important developments since 1819 and then analyzes the constitution--the longest operative written constitution in the world--providing an article-by-article commentary. The full text of the constitution, a table of cases, selected bibliography, and a general index add to the usefulness of this important new reference guide and teaching tool for academics and professionals.
