Description

This up-to-date book is a brief history of Quebec and the idea of a Quebec nation from 1740 to the present day.

The story is told through conversations between journalist Gilles Gougeon and seven noted Quebec historians. The informal, lively tone of their discussions makes this a spirited and interesting presentation. A bestseller in Quebec, this book has successfully explained the history of Quebec nationalism and its champions to Quebec readers. At a time when many Quebec nationalists believe they are close to achieving the goal of sovereignty that they have sought for more than two centuries, English Canadians can see for themselves how Quebec historians view their own history.

Editorial Reviews

"This slim volume is a handy starter for English Canadians interested in understanding what drives nationalist Quebecers.
This book flows from transcripts of a series on the subject done for Radio Canada, CBC's French television network, back in 1992."

— Record

"This book is an effective reminder for those who already know, and an effective introduction for those keen to find out, about the attachments of convenience and genuine passion that animate discussion in Quebec today...
a fine translation."

— Canadian Journal of Communications

"Clear, fascinating, enlightening little book... excellent English translation.
For all those who worry about Quebec and its future within Canada this is the basic book to read.
Don't miss this fascinating little book.
Make sure your local library and high school library have copies available.
By reading it, you'll learn a lot of history no schoolbooks seem to cover and understand what's going on today."

— Telegraph-Journal
