|Vive Quebec brings together leading writers and thinkers
in a lively and challenging debate about Quebec nationalism. Lucien Bouchard,
Jean Charest, Charles Taylor, Gregory Baum and Daniel Jacques are among the
distinguished contributors who take part in this stimulating and wide-ranging
discussion. The issues covered deal with include Quebecs relationship to
the rest of Canada, its place within North America and the world, and its
dealings with anglophones, Aboriginals, and other groups within the province.
Anyone who is curious about what Quebecers are thinking and talking about today
will be interested in this book. Widely praised in its French edition, Vive
Quebec offers Canadians outside the province a fascinating opportunity to
eavesdrop on Quebecs political debate.
"With its theme of "thinking about the Quebec nation",
this book is firmly oriented towards the future rather than towards history."
"This is a new beginning. I believe that what we see in
this book has gone beyond the embryonic stage. A new impetus has been given to
reflection on the Quebec nation..." Lucien
