The Nebraska Constitution is one of the oldest state constitutions in the United States. But it is far from stagnant: the 1875 document has been amended 227 times. Some of those changes were dramatic (such as creating the unicameral legislature) while others have been less so (for example, rearranging the provisions dealing with education in 1970). But all these changes tell a complex story of a lengthy document representing the will of the Nebraska citizenry as it responds to the needs of the day and the controversies of the time. That story is told here. The tools for further research are also provided in an accessible format.
 
This second edition of the only modern, comprehensive reference on the Nebraska Constitution has been completely revised and features an enhanced format, greater coverage of judicial doctrine, and up-to-date information on the latest constitutional amendments and case law. This easy-to-use single-volume guide is a valuable acquisition for any library serving students, scholars, legal professionals, and citizens.

Robert D. Miewald (1938–97) was a professor of political science at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and the author of several books. Peter J. Longo is a professor of political science at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Anthony B. Schutz is an assistant professor of law at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Robert M. Spire (1925–94) served as Nebraska state attorney general in 1985. John M. Gradwohl is the Judge Harry A. Spencer Professor of Law at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
