The Texas state constitution : a reference guide
This title serves as a reference guide to the Texas Constitution, a document that is eight times the length of the U.S. Constitution. The treatise is divided into two parts; the first details the constitutional history of Texas, beginning in the 1500s and ending with the current constitution. The second part forms the bulk of the treatise and includes the text of the constitution along with notes and commentary. Note that the legal research for this treatise ended in February 1995 and does not analyze any amendments made after 1995. Also included are a foreword by a chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court, an extensive table of contents, a bibliographical essay, a table of cases, and a subject index.
