The Montana State Constitution: A Reference Guide

Front Cover
Greenwood Publishing Group, 2001 - 245 pages


Montana's idealistic state constitution was created during the politically turbulent early 1970s. Progressive and innovative, but also pragmatic, this constitutional newcomer combines a strong concern for individual rights, personal liberty, and individual dignity while seeking to keep government open and responsive to the will of the people of Montana. It also stresses rights to a clean and healthful environment. This is the first reference work to provide an in-depth analysis of the text, meaning, and legal interpretations of Montana's constitution.

This book will be of interest to legal scholars and practicing attorneys, as well as students of constitutional development and interpretation, state government, and the history of the western US. It is also an excellent research tool for those interested in Montana's constitutional history and case law, and includes a comprehensive bibliographic essay dealing with available primary and secondary research sources.
