Description

In a new chapter on contemporary Quebec, the book examines the 1995 referendum, discusses the ideological shifts and societal changes in Quebec under the Bouchard government, and considers Quebec's place in North America in the wake of NAFTA. A Short History of Quebec offers a concise yet comprehensive overview of the province from the pre-contact native period to the death of Pierre Trudeau in 2001. The authors provide an insightful perspective on the history of Quebec, focusing on the social, economic, and political development of the region and its peoples. Engagingly written, this expanded and updated third edition is an ideal starting place to learn about Quebec.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the earlier editions of A Short History of Quebec: "The best book currently available in English on the history of Quebec." Julian Gwyn, Ottawa Citizen "Up-to-date, comprehensive ... and innovative ... It will serve as a model for those writing other Canadian texts and stand the test of time." J.I. Little, Revue d'histoire de l'Amérique française "This book should be read by anyone who would like to have a general and very good introduction to Quebec history." Eric Darier, British Journal of Canadian Studies
