The Mississippi State Constitution: A Reference Guide

Framsida
Greenwood Publishing Group, 1993 - 172 sidor


This authoritative reference gives a brief history of Mississippi's constitutional development over the last 175 years and an analysis of the current constitution. Part of Greenwood's series of references dealing with America's state constitutions, this volume identifies basic principles and revisions and defines the powers of the various branches of the government. The short, easy-to-use guide provides a full text of the constitution, a table of cases, a selected bibliography, and a full index.

Part I begins with the original constitution in 1817 and traces developments and changes in the 1832, 1869, and 1890 constitutions and points to the needs for contemporary reform. Part II consists of the full text of the constitution with an article-by-article commentary. The volume uses court cases and interpretive opinion of attorneys-general over the past century to demonstrate changes in Mississippi's fundamental law. The bibliographical essay refers to important sources for further reading about the constitution and Mississippi history.
