In The Arizona State Constitution, John D. Leshy provides a comprehensive history of Arizona's constitutional development. Adopted at the height of the progressive movement, the Constitution contains many progressive innovations. Leshy describes these along with the dramatic changes the state has undergone in subsequent decades. He also includes a section-by-section commentary which crisply discusses the evolution and interpretation of each section, including significant court decisions. Thoroughly updated to reflect amendments and court cases through the fall of 2012, the second edition of The Arizona State Constitution is an essential reference guide for readers who seek a rich account of Arizona's constitutional evolution. The Oxford Commentaries on the State Constitutions of the United States is an important series that reflects a renewed international interest in constitutional history and provides expert insight into each of the 50 state constitutions. Each volume in this innovative series contains a historical overview of the state's constitutional development, a section-by-section analysis of its current constitution, and a comprehensive guide to further research. Under the expert editorship of Professor G. Alan Tarr, Director of the Center on State Constitutional Studies at Rutgers University, this series provides essential reference tools for understanding state constitutional law. Books in the series can be purchased individually or as part of a complete set, giving readers unmatched access to these important political documents.

Little by little, the freedoms envisioned by our Founding Fathers and those who struggled for independence are being stripped away. The best guarantee that America's constitutional liberties will continue to be protected is to ensure that all citizens, and especially our children, clearly understand both what those freedoms are and who it is that gave them to us in the first place. This book explains: · The biblical basis upon which America was founded · The influence of Sir William Blackstone and English common law on America’s legal system · The miracle that happened at the Constitutional Convention · The U.S. Constitution, including all the amendments, as well as several popular amendments that failed to be ratified · The methods that have been used to vastly expand the federal government’s power since the Constitution’s drafting. It also examines why John Adams, the second President of the United States, would write what he did in 1798, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." The book is a response to the challenge from one of our nation’s great modern presidents, President Ronald Reagan, issued on October 27, 1964: "You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."
