0888626045 Clean text, Very Good. Light shelf wear to covers/corners; satisfaction guaranteed. Trade paperback binding. "As the authors explain in the preface, one of their primary objectives is to put into the hands of lay readers a concise overview of the history of Quebec. This they have done. Such an approach gives the reader a genuine feel and awareness of the variety of influences that have had an impact in the development of the province. For both the student and the teacher, this work will be a valuable tool for providing a solid base of understanding of the dynamic and historic character of Quebec." (Kenneth Elliot Canadian Materials) "It would be difficult to find a book of history which tells the story as thoroughly and objectively as this one does. Available in English now, in a translation by Robert Chodos, the book lives up to its reputation. The reader gets solid information, not subjective interpretation of Quebec history. The book has well researched sections on federalism, education, political parties, trade unions, economic movements and ideologies. But its descriptions of the squalid living conditions of working people, the vicious exploitation they suffered, are particularly strong. They have certainly stocked their work with facts, descriptions, statistics, tables, even dozens of pertinent and fascinating photographs and illustrations. The authors have openend wide and important doors to the immediate past." (James Stewart Montreal Gazette) "First-rate synthesis of the best historical writing on the province's evolution from Confederation to the eve of the Great Depression. The excellent text, provided here in first-rate translation by Robert Chodos, is supplemented by dozens of well-chosen illustrations, tables, maps and figures. At the end a general bibliography and more specialized "Bibliographies by Chapter" round out this well conceived and impressively executed general survey. In some thirty-six chapters the reader is initiated into the mysteries of post-Confederation Quebec with a degree of detail that is rich and illumination without ever becoming overpowering and confusing. Linteau, Durocher, and Robert argue clearly and forcefully that Quebec's economy and society became modernized in the sense of becoming overwhelmingly industrial and urban. In Quebec: A History three of the best practitioners of the historical craft in Quebec have done a signal service by summarizing the major trends of post-Confederation Quebec." (J.R. Miller Canadian Book Review)
