Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Ireland (history, U. of Kentucky) provides a detailed treatment of the state's constitution, divided into two sections. The first part provides an overview of the constitutional history of the state. The second, much larger part presents each section of the current constitution, with commentary on its history and discussion of selected court decisions, primarily of the state supreme court. The text of the constitution is drawn from , Informational Bulletin No. 59, Ninth Edition, September 1997, published by the Legislative Research Commission, Frankfort, Kentucky, with the addition of the Schedule that was part of the 1992 amendment that reformed the executive branch.
