Joseph R. Grodin, Calvin R. Massey, and Richard B. Cunningham ; foreword by Malcolm M. Lucas
<p>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. <p>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.
