Oxford commentaries on the State Constitutions of the United States. Oxford scholarship online.
In 1907, William Jennings Bryan described the proposed constitution for Oklahoma as 'the best constitution in the United States today.' An enduring characteristic of Oklahoma's constitution has been its faith in direct democracy and its root in Progressive Era politics. This volume traces the historical formation and constitutional development of the state of Oklahoma. It provides commentary and analysis on the intent, politics, social and economic pressures, and the legal decisions that shaped and enhanced the Oklahoma constitution since it was adopted in 1907. The text gives a broad understanding of state constitutional law within the context of Oklahoma's constitutional evolution.
