The Arizona State Constitution

Second Edition

John D. Leshy

Oxford Commentaries on the State Constitutions of the US

  • Includes an account of Arizona's constitutional evolution, allowing readers to see the progression of legislation in its historical context
  • Provides a provision-by-provision commentary of the state constitution of Arizona and includes analysis on the state's current constitution, providing an essential reference guide to understanding this important document

New to this Edition:

  • The Arizona State Constitution is current through the November 2012 election, adding a discussion of all of the 59 amendments proposed, and the text and a discussion of all 32 amendments adopted, since the first edition was published twenty years ago.
  • References and discusses all the significant court decisions interpreting and applying the Arizona Constitution, and references all significant articles and books published on the subject, since the first edition.
  • More than just an update, significant parts of the text have been thoroughly rewritten to capture the trends of constitution-making and interpretation through the one hundredth year of Arizona's statehood, as it still operates under its original constitution (as amended).
