Description

First published in 1994, this book offers a brief history of Quebec and the idea of a Quebec nation from 1740 to the time of publication.
The story is told through conversations between journalist Gilles Gougeon and seven noted Quebec historians. At a time when many Quebec nationalists continue to believe that 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.
A bestseller in Quebec, A History of Quebec Nationalism has successfully explained the history of Quebec nationalism and its champions to Quebec readers.

Editorial Reviews

"I know nothing better to improve anyone's understanding of the present crisis than this slim 118 page soft cover book.
The best of it is that it is not stilted academic writing but authoritative readable speech, made for television and admirable for its clarity and succinctness."

— Telegraph-Journal

"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
