Description

Between the Great Depression and the 1980s, Quebec society underwent revolutionary change. This book is the most comprehensive and critical examination of this period yet to appear.

A companion volume to the authors' Quebec: A History 1867-1929, this book likewise takes an ecclectic approach to the subject, analyzing changes in the economic, social, political and cultural realms. It gives a concise account of Quebec's political life as it evolved under the leadership of Duplessis, Lesage, Lévesque and Bourassa. It traces the broad patterns of economic development, the impact of the Quiet Revolution, the development of a distinct popular culture, and the emegence of powerful labour movements.

Extensively illustrated with photographs, maps and other historical visuals, Quebec Since 1930 is the best and most comprehensive single-volume treatment of the period to date.

Editorial Reviews

"This book touches on every conceivable aspect of the development of Quebec during the past 50 years, and ... it will prove useful to anyone interested in Canadian history."

— Revue d'histoire de l'Amérique française

"An authoritative history, by authors who are past masters of their subject."

— Nos livres

"The material is so abundant yet well selected that it is a real pleasure to read... it is difficult to think of elements left out... they provide students with good information about Quebec."

— Canadian Journal of Political Science

"They (authors) laboriously investigate the impact of education, economics, intergovernmental relations and labor: scholarly yet readable."

— Ottawa Citizen

"Very easy to use, remarkable for its scholarly qualities, Quebec Since 1930 reads like a novel... It will appeal as much to the general reader as to specialists in this subject."

— Cahiers de géographie du Québec

"Its appearance in English is greatly welcomed... especially useful to teachers of Canadian history at all levels, and should be accessible to most high school students.
For anyone who wants to know more about the history of Quebec, and how that history has shaped present-day Quebec, this book, like its predecessor volume, will be indispensable.
Its most obvious virtue is that it pulls together much of the vast amount of historical research that has been done in Quebec in the last generation or so... they(authors) succeed magnificently and their treatment of their material is sufficiently systematic that one barely notices the absence of a conventional chronological framework.
The book reads simply and clearly.
Translators are to be congratulated for rendering it into such clear English... it ought to be in history teachers' personal libraries and most definitely should be in school libraries.
It fills a very real gap, especially for anyone who does not read French and who is unable to keep up with the vast amount of specialized research that continues to be done by Quebec historians... all Canadians, and certainly all history teachers, will benefit from their work."

— Canadian Social Studies

"This fine new interpretation of recent Quebec history is at last available in English translation... a balanced, comprehensive and much-neened synthesis of current provincial historiography up to the mid 1980s.
Highly readable study... an essential acquisition for both public and academic libraries... the text is complemented by numerous illustrations (including several good maps), evoking the ambience of the period."

— Canadian Library Journal
