Summary
"The Delaware State Constitution is the first state constitution drafted by a convention composed of popularly elected representatives, and it is rich with history and tradition. The Delaware Bill of Rights has remained almost exactly the same since 1792, and it has enacted specific provisions whereby its three branches of government operate differently from the federal system. [This book provides a] constitutional and historical account of the state's basic governing charter. In it, [the author] begins with an overview of Delaware's constitutional history. He then provides an in-depth, section-by-section analysis of the entire constitution, detailing important changes that have been made over the years...This second edition includes all amendments to the Delaware Constitution since 2002 and all significant court decisions interpreting any provision in the Delaware Constitution that have been issued since 2002."--
