Editorial Reviews

Review

Tucson-Pima Public Library 'Southwest Book of the Year' for 2001"More than just a citizen handbook or a college text—although it is both—McClory's thoughtful book highlights the features that make Arizona government unique, while clearly presenting the pros and cons of controversial aspects of our lawmaking and governing process. Marketed as 'an authoritative guide to Arizona government—written in plain language,' this fascinating book lives up to its billing. Every Arizonan should read it, and keep it handy for future reference." —Journal of Arizona History

Format: Paperback
"Understanding the Arizona Constitution" was an invaluable tool for me as I took an Arizona Constitutional Law class in my 2nd year of law school. The reading for the class consisted of case after case organized by the professor and divided up into different topics relevant to the Arizona Constitution specifically. This book provided a very concise, yet informative background on Arizona's Constitution. It covered the same topics we covered in class and stated principles simply while providing understandable and appropriate anecdotes.

For example, in explaining Arizona's progressive referendum and initiative process, the author discussed the process by which Arizona State University became a university in the mid-1950's. The book also anecdotally explained the recall drive and impeachment of former governor Evan Mecham and the Constitutional implications associated with that process. Summarily, the author explains Arizona's government and its subtle differences between it and the federal government. The author has done a fantastic job in elucidating the intricacies of the Arizona Constitution and, almost more importantly, why those differences exist.

I would highly reccomend this book to anyone who is looking for any reference material preceding an academic study (law school, etc.) of the Arizona Constitution.

Format: Paperback
This book contains a very interesting history of Arizona, and an explanation of the rights of Arizona citizens under the constitution. It clearly explains the often confusing processes of initiative, referendum, and recall and also details the layout and powers of each governmental branch. The whole book is in an easy to understand, conversational tone. If you want more information on something she talks about, she provides endnotes with explanations and sources. Every citizen of Arizona should have a copy of the book to read and consult. The book is concise, interesting, and just long enough to tell you almost everything you want to know about Arizona's government.

Format: Paperback
This book is written extremely clear and in an easy to read format. I work in an Arizona Government office and the staff of ten share the book when aiding constituents. This book has answers to questions you can't even find on google! Tony McClory, the author, also has updated material located on her website to keep the book up to date with information. This book is a wonderful side book to help you understand and navigate the Arizona Constitution and the Author should be applauded for her outstanding efforts.
