Nominated for the Governor-General's Award for Non-Fiction, René Lévesque and the Parti Québécois in Power has been described as the classic work on one of the most important periods in recent Quebec history. Graham Fraser paints a vivid portrait of one of the most dynamic political figures of the twentieth century, describes the origins of the Parti Québécois, and gives a graphic account of key events that still resonate in Canadian political life: Quebec's language law, the 1980 referendum, and the patriation of the constitution.
