Illinois State Constitution Oxford University Press Inc
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Since Illinois became a state in 1818, it has been a microcosm of the country at every stage of its development, from its status as a "free" state in antebellum America to a state rich in agriculture and industry whose goods and services now travel the world. Illinois' four state constitutions have reflected its changing values. Illinois is currently one of the few states that have adopted a new constitution since World War II. This 1970 constitution has become a model for countries in Central and Eastern Europe seeking examples of modern American constitutions. The Illinois State Constitution traces the history of the state's constitution from its statehood in 1818 to the adoption of the state's fourth constitution in 1970. Ann M. Lousin, who has been involved in Illinois constitutional development and government for over four decades, provides provision-by-provision commentary and analysis of the state's current constitution, covering the Preamble, the Bill of Rights, and the various articles and amendments, including a survey of case law under each provision. Previously published by Greenwood, this title has been brought back in to circulation by Oxford University Press with new verve. Re-printed with standardization of content organization in order to facilitate research across the series. This title, as with all titles in the series, is set to join the dynamic revision cycle of The Oxford Commentaries on the State Constitutions of the United States. The Oxford Commentaries on the State Constitutions of the United States is an important new 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.
Along Racial Lines Peter Lang Publishing Inc
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Along Racial Lines fully explores the legislative and legal history, scope, impact, and implications of voting rights law in the United States. David Michael Hudson examines the history of minority elective franchise since the Constitution, explaining legislative changes while focusing on the actions and impacts of the courts. The work concentrates on court interpretations of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and its amendments. To give readers a greater understanding of the effects of the act, the author plunges deeply into the history, society, and lives of three communities, representing each of three major American minority groups. The story of Dallas, Texas, tells of the struggle of blacks for representation in city government. The story of Dade County, Florida, depicts the power of voter participation as Hispanic immigrants assumed political control. Finally, the history of the Navajo Reservation in Arizona portrays enhancements to the political influence of the largest Native American tribe in North America.
First City University of Pennsylvania Press

First City Philadelphia and the Forging of Historical Memory Gary B. Nash "A wonderful volume, filled with stories of historical discovery, describing the preservation of Philadelphia's past for the benefit of all...First City is a first-rate piece of historical interpretation that will be a great contribution to America's cultural history."--Journal of the Early Republic "A synthetic history of what is arguably the nation's most historically conscious city...It represents well the tensions and opportunities that await writers seeking to push the craft of history to a new level of self-awareness and creativity."--American Historical Review "A remarkable book."--Public Historian With its rich foundation stories, Philadelphia may be the most important city in America's collective memory. By the middle of the eighteenth century William Penn's "greene countrie town" was, after London, the largest city in the British Empire. The two most important documents in the history of the United States, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, were drafted and signed in Philadelphia. The city served off and on as the official capital of the young country until 1800, and was also the site of the first American university, hospital, medical college, bank, paper mill, zoo, sugar refinery, public school, and government mint. In First City, acclaimed historian Gary B. Nash examines the complex process of memory making in this most historic of American cities. Though history is necessarily written from the evidence we have of the past, as Nash shows, rarely is that evidence preserved without intent, nor is it equally representative. Full of surprising anecdotes, First City reveals how Philadelphians--from members of elite cultural institutions, such as historical societies and museums, to relatively anonymous groups, such as women, racial and religious minorities, and laboring people--have participated in the very partisan activity of transmitting historical memory from one generation to the next. Gary B. Nash is Professor of History at the University of California, Los Angeles, and author of many books, including The Unknown American Revolution: The Unruly Birth of Democracy and the Struggle to Create America and History on Trial: Culture Wars and the Teaching of the Past.
