Constitution Making in Indiana
Constitution Making in Indiana is the definitive treatment of how Indiana's constitutional government has evolved. Volume 1 (which is out of print) contains the texts of both the 1816 and 1851 constitutions as well as a 241-page introduction explaining the process of forming these documents. Volumes 2-4 contain the legislative processes from 1851-1960 to amend the present constitution. Charles Kettleborough compiled the Historical Introduction and the first three volumes; John A. Bremer compiled Volume 4.
This work is designed as a brief, topical discussion of the subject of constitution-making in Indiana. The first part of the volume covers the period under the Constitution of 1816; as this is a closed historical episode, and as the illustrative material is relatively rarer and more inaccessible, it has been treated with greater fullness and substantially all sources of information have been drawn upon for material. The second part of the volume covers the period under the Constitution of 1851. The primary sources of information for this period are practically inexhaustible and no attempt has been made to treat the subject fully.
