Overview

This volume will familiarize the reader with the Wisconsin state constitution, the document's history, its ratification, and the major amendments in their historical perspective. An analytical commentary on the current constitution, section by section, makes up the heart of the book. A table of cases, bibliography, and index complete this unique reference survey, which is designed for students and teachers, scholars and experts, and lawyers in the fields of legal studies, state and local government, and American history.

This work focuses on the current status of Wisconsin constitutional law. Along with the close analysis of the constitution, the author looks at the litigation that has followed, with particular emphasis on how the courts' interpretations have affected its meaning. The final chapter includes topics that are not confined to a particular section of the constitution: the public purpose doctrine, the priority of constitutional provisions, apparent grants of legislative power, and the interpretation of the constitution.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Celebrates Wisconsin's sesquicentennial (actually in 1998) by tracing its constitution's 150-year history. The result is a convenient source of basic documents, cases, and historical material for both lawyers and non-lawyers, which illustrates that Wisconsin's constitution was a product not of giants, but of ordinary men consulting serviceable precedents in the inchoate state of Wisconsin's rapidly growing pioneer society. And yet, Wisconsin is one of only 19 states still using their original constitutions. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
