Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
By American standards Rhode Island has a long history of constitutional governance. Beginning in 1636, Rhode Island colonial or independent constitutions have been shaped by revolution, nation-building, tumult, Republican control in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Democratic control in the middle to late years of the twentieth century, and further changes wrought by everything from neoliberalism to gay rights. The result has been living document reflecting, at various times, strict religious liberty but also suppression of the right to vote. Conley (history and constitutional law emeritus, Providence College) and Flanders, a former associate justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court now in private practice, describe the fascinating history of Rhode Island's constitutional choices and an article-by-article analysis of the document as it now reads.
