dc.description Printed document, 439 pp. The California Constitution, following Mexican law, prohibited slavery and helped to precipitate the crisis that nearly dissolved the Union. This is a Spanish translation of the English report.
dc.description.abstract This is basically a report of the Convention of California's debates on the creation of the new state constitution, marking the historical transition of California as Mexican territory to US territory (with a very short-lived California Republic in between). The majority of its residents at the time were Spanish-speakers, casualties of a moving political boundary.
