The Georgia State Constitution: A Reference Guide, 第 55 卷

封面
Greenwood Publishing Group, 1994 - 294 頁

An insider in Georgia's recent constitutional revision gives a penetrating analysis of the state's history and political system. A succinct history describes the highly charged political events behind the changes in ten constitutions and a prolific number of amendments from colonial times through the Civil War to the present, during which time Georgia gained regional and national prominence. The reference gives the text of the constitution, article by article, along with commentary. The guide cites current court interpretation, provides a table of cases, identifies important local constitutional amendments, and offers a bibliography and index. Lawyers, judges, historians, political scientists, policymakers, and interested citizens will find this survey invaluable for understanding Georgia today.
