The Oklahoma State Constitution: A Reference Guide

Sampul Depan
Greenwood Publishing Group, 2001 - 358 halaman

The Five Civilized Tribes, populism, progressive-era reform, and a continuing thread of popular mistrust of the legislature shaped and continue to influence the State of Oklahoma's constitution. Based on a combination of exhaustive, article-by-article legal and historical research, Adkison and Palmer detail the intent, the politics, the social and economic pressures, and the legal cases that have given form to the Oklahoma constitution since it was adopted in 1907.

This volume in Greenwood's State Constitution Series will be useful to legal professionals and scholars alike. Based on scholarly research, but written in a manner accessible to the lay person, this book is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about Oklahoma's constitutional history, state constitutional development in general, the impact of Native Americans on democratic development, and the enduring legacy of Progressive reforms.
