This book brings a unique historical, academic and practical perspective. Collectively the authors have written the primary books on the history of the Florida Constitution, been directly involved in litigating many of the cases in this book, and been involved in drafting multiple constitutional provisions.

This book is the only comprehensive casebook on Florida Constitutional Law. It contains more commentary than a typical casebook, reflecting the authors' extensive experience in drafting parts of the constitution (author Mills was the Chair of the Style & Drafting Committee of the 1997-98 Florida Constitution Revision Commission and has drafted several successful citizens' initiatives); litigating constitutional issues; teaching Florida Constitutional Law; and publishing articles and books about aspects of the constitution, including its history. Thus the book seeks to convey not just the pertinent cases construing the constitution but also to place them in historical and practical context.

The book has two primary audiences: law students and practitioners who deal with any aspect of the Florida Constitution.
