An update to the 2002 edition, Maddex's (Constitutions of the World) revision still competes with formidable, albeit older subject references, including Constitutional Amendments, 1789 to the Present(Gale, 1999) and the six-volume Encyclopedia of the American Constitution(Macmillan, 2000). Fully updated, the 250-plus entries incorporate recent legal developments up to 2007 and the evolution of scholarly perspectives on key figures and issues, and this makes the book the most current and cost-effective constitutional guide now available. Numerous illustrations, primary-source sidebars, a dynamic layout, and strategically placed pull quotes result in an appealing presentation of didactic content. Recommended for public, secondary, and postsecondary collections.
