Description

Canadian politics changed dramatically on November 15, 1976 with the stunning election victory of René Lévesque and the Parti Québécois.

This book tells the story behind that election campaign, offering the background that explains how Lévesque won--and why. It considers why Robert Bourassa called the election even though secret Liberal polls were unfavourable, and examines the role played by Pierre Trudeau and the federal party in arranging a virtual takeover of the provincial party during the campaign.

First published in 1977, How Levesque Won is a vivid and immediate report on a siesmic shift in Canadian politics, the aftershocks of which continue to be felt today.
