The Nevada State Constitution: A Reference Guide

Sprednja platnica
Greenwood Publishing Group, 1993 - 182 strani


This in-depth reference analysis of the Nevada State Constitution is the first of its kind in that state's history. Michael W. Bowers provides a history of the struggles of Nevada to achieve territorial and state status and the effects of these battles on the state's constitution, intended for scholars, lawyers, and laypersons. Bowers analyzes the constitution section by section, highlighting political, historical, legal, and cultural factors that shaped the state's basic law. Reapportionment, the separation of powers, direct democracy, and civil rights and liberties are among the matters that he describes clearly in his discussion of Nevada's constitution and its amendments.
