Review quote

"This volume marks an important contribution to the literature on state constitutional reform. Building on the editors' earlier analyses of the politics and problems of amending state constitutions, this latest effort provides a thoughtful, comprehensive agenda for future work. Every chapter is informed, well written, and filled with lively insight. The book should be required reading for scholars and policy makers alike."
