Description

Compiled by reporters for the legendary Last Post, this book presents a vital, on-the-spot account of the emergence of militant nationalist and labour movements in Quebec in the late 60s and early 70s.

It is a documentary record of the most crucial events of 1968 to 1972 in Quebec--the first stirrings of rebellion in the industrial towns, the heroism of the Mouvement de Libération du Taxi and the 'Lapalme guys', the drama of the October Crisis of 1970. It goes on to describe the birth of the labour unions' Common Front in the La Presse strike and, in an important final chapter, analyzes the Front's spectacular show of strength of 1972.

Invaluable as a sourcebook, Quebec: A Chronicle sorts through a multitude of political myths and rumours that thwart understanding of Quebec's development to this day.
