In a new chapter on contemporary Quebec, the book examines the 1995 referendum, discusses the ideological shifts and societal changes in Quebec under the Bouchard government, and considers Quebec's place in North America in the wake of NAFTA. A Short History of Quebec offers a concise yet comprehensive overview of the province from the pre-contact native period to the death of Pierre Trudeau in 2001. The authors provide an insightful perspective on the history of Quebec, focusing on the social, economic, and political development of the region and its peoples. Engagingly written, this expanded and updated third edition is an ideal starting place to learn about Quebec.
