The Idaho State Constitution: A Reference Guide by Donald W. Crowley, Florence A Heffron

This reference guide is the first to provide a short history of Idaho's constitution, the full text of the current constitution, and a clear and concise analysis of the document article-by-article. Donald Crowley and Florence Heffron describe the colorful development of the constitution over the last 101 years and how it has reflected concerns about Mormons, Chinese, and Indian inhabitants and powerful economic, social, and political forces. Since 1889, the 109 amendments have democratized the political systems and given people rights to participate more actively in the state's governance. A bibliographical essay, table of cases, and general index contribute to the usefulness of this valuable inter-disciplinary guide for lawyers, historians, political scientists, and interested citizens.
