Published on the cusp of an election call in 1994, this book was written for the public by the Parti Québécois and outlines what could be expected from a PQ government.
The party sets out its position on business and economic development, social policy, culture, and gender. It defines sovereignty and sets out the steps necessary to attain it. The party tells its readers its position on the boundaries of a sovereign Quebec, on dividing the debt, on aboriginal issues, and economic association with Canada.
Quebec in a New World remains a useful primer of the policies held by the official embodiment of the sovereigntist movement.
