Search for a Nation
Canada's Crises in French - English Relations from 1759
Search For A Nation is an unique resource which explores 10 major crises in French- English Relations from 1759 to 1995. The third edition adds the constitutional crisis from 1982 to 1992, culminating with the defeat of the Meech Lake accords in the national referendum and the very tense and close 1995 Quebec Referendum.
Each narrative chapter in the book is supported by a corresponding chapter of carefully chosen and edited primary and secondary sources which illuminate the issues and often provide an immediate sense of the drama of unfolding events.
Search For A Nation is an ideal companion to any general history of Canada and essential background for understanding the ongoing debate about the future of Quebec and its relations with the rest of Canada.
