The Once and Future Constitutional Law: On the Law of American State Constitutions
The Law of American State Constitutions is, first and foremost, a treatise. I mean this as praise. Given the growing complexity of almost any given area of law in the modern day, it is no mean feat to capture an entire field in one volume, and to set out its many dimensions in a manner that is both approachable and scholarly. Williams has organized his discussion of the dimensions of state constitutional law into five parts, ranging from the history and nature of state constitutions before the framing of the federal constitution to the current efforts of state courts to address the process and substance of state constitutional amendment and revision.
