The relationship between liberalism and nationalism is of growing importance in many areas of the world. These essays simultaneously deepen our understanding of the specific case of Quebec and help to map a theoretical territory that, while vitally important in the modern world, is largely unexplored. Is Quebec Nationalism Just? will be of interest to those concerned with the relationship between Quebec and Canada as well as scholars in the fields of political theory, Canadian politics, constitutionalism, and public policy.
