At the same time members of Congress proposed 11,500 amendments; states have filed close to 400 additional petitions for constitutional conventions to propose amendments. These four volumes edited and introduced by John R. Vile collect and update compilations of lists of proposed amendments and convention petitions that have been scattered about in a variety of governmental reports. They also reprint classic studies by Herman Ames and Michael Musmanno that analyzed amending proposals introduced during the nation's early years. The work includes texts of basic constitutional documents like the Articles of Confederation, the U.S. Constitution and its amendments, and the Confederate Constitution, as well as a comprehensive index of all amendments proposed through 2001. The fourth volume comprises a supplement to the earlier three, and brings the amendments up through 2010. CONTENTS: Volume I: Introduction, Dr. John R.
