[This publication includes] an examination of selected individual rights guarantees found in state bills or declarations of rights. (This is not to suggest that other constitutional provisions do not play an important role in protecting rights.) Where feasible, the American origin or history of a guarantee is noted. To the extent practical, the guarantees are classified under specific headings. Nevertheless, some .of the provisions thus organized defy basic classification. The reader is therefore urged to consult the alphabetical footnotes accompanying various guarantees.
