Although it is the youngest state, Hawaii has a long history of constitution-making dating back to its days as a monarchy, republic, and a territory. Lee's work is the first history of the Hawaii Constitution with text and scholarly analysis on an article-by-article basis. Political scientists, lawyers, and historians will find this history, professional analysis, text, bibliographical essay, table of cases, and index easily accessible for varied research purposes.
This one-volume work details the history of Hawaii's constitution-making from 1840 to the present. The state constitution that was drafted in 1950 and became effective in 1959, and its subsequent amendments (especially those made in 1968 and 1978) are analyzed. The bibliographical essay highlights major sources on Hawaii's constitutional history and development and on interpretations of specific constitutional provisions. The table of cases outlines the important cases to date on the constitution.

"It is one thing to read a constitutional section 'cold' and another to know about its antecedents, what it is intended to do, and how it has been treated by the courts before examining its detailed provisions. Dr. Anne Lee has directed her considerable research skills to making the Aloha State's constitution comprehensible, and as a consequence The Hawaii State Constitution should prove to be a useful reference tool both for the layman and the technician."-Norman Meller Professor Emeritus University of Hawaii
