This treatise served as a practical guidebook for statesseeking to institute constitutional conventions, and itremains relevant today. Based on a study on 192 Americanconstitutional conventions, Jameson analyzes the natureand sources of constitutions and shows how they areproduced. Some arise from a "spontaneous convention." Othersare the result of a "legislative convention," "revolutionaryconvention" or "constitutional convention." "Jameson's workremains a legal landmark, notably not simply as the firsttreatise in this area but also for its continuing insightsinto issues of constitutional change at both the state andnational levels.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
