book cover

This book was originally published in 1996 as The Texas State Constitution: A Reference Guide.

The preface provides an overview of the book's substantive content.

For example, the preface states: "This guide builds on the available resources to provide an up-to-date reference on the Texas Constitution. It adopts what may be called an intermediate approach, one more than a citizens' guide for the general public and less than a comprehensive multi-volume legal treatise designed for the specialist."

The book was republished in 2011 as simply The Texas State Constitution. No substantive changes were made to the text at that time so the book has become somewhat dated. However, it remains a solid resource for anyone researching the Texas Constitution of 1876.

The following description appears on the publisher's website: "In addition to an overview of Texas' constitutional history, this volume provides an in-depth, section-by-section analysis of the entire constitution, detailing the many significant changes that have been made since its initial drafting."
