Chat with a human bookseller about this or any other title
The Nebraska Constitution is one of the oldest state constitutions in America. Much of the original document has remained the same since it was first drafted in 1875, yet there have been many innovative developments to the constitution throughout its history. The Nebraska State Constitution is the first modern comprehensive reference to the state's constitution. In it, authors Robert D. Miewald and Peter J. Longo provide a detailed account of Nebraska's political history, and describe in detail debates over major political issues. Previously published by Greenwood, this title has been brought back in to circulation by Oxford University Press with new verve. Re-printed with standardization of content organization in order to facilitate research across the series, this title, as with all titles in the series, is set to join the dynamic revision cycle of The Oxford Commentaries on the State Constitutions of the United States. The Oxford Commentaries on the State Constitutions of the United States is an important series that reflects a renewed international interest in constitutional history and provides expert insight into each of the 50 state constitutions. Each volume in this innovative series contains a historical overview of the state's constitutional development, a section-by-section analysis of its current constitution, and a comprehensive guide to further research. Under the expert editorship of Professor G. Alan Tarr, Director of the Center on State Constitutional Studies at Rutgers University, this series provides essential reference tools for understanding state constitutional law. Books in the series can be purchased individually or as part of a complete set, giving readers unmatched access to these important political documents.
