Robert F. Williams launches our new series Reference Guides to the State Constitutions of the United States with this guide to the New Jersey State Constitution. The New Jersey Constitution is strictly a basic constitutional document, not a code of laws. It remains unblemished and envied. State constitutions have been referred to as `mine(s) of instruction for the natural history of democratic communities.' This in-depth study of New Jersey's constitutional development provides an important insight into the broader issues of New Jersey's political, economic, and social growth. In Part I Williams traces the constitutional development from statehood in 1776 followed by a thorough analysis of the current constitution in Part II.

With forewords by G. Alan Tarr and former New Jersey Governor and Chief Justice Richard J. Hughes, Williams' The New Jersey State Constitution: A Reference Guide covers the historical development of the constitutions of 1776, 1844, the Constitutional Commission of 1873, and the current constitution written in 1947. The volume then provides a section-by-section analysis of the present day constitution.
