Abstract:

Focuses on Lévesque and on Quebec events, treating each in a national context, offering a wealth of surprising revelations in a book as entertaining as it is authentic. Comprehesive research and extensive interviews with Lévesque, his friends and colleagues, yield a large amount of new material on Lévesque's early life, his character, personality, career, aims and achievements. In telling Lévesque's story, the author presents revealing sketches of such prominent figures as Pierre Trudeau, Jean Marchand, Jean Lesage, Robert Bourassa and others. In addition, the book provides a summary of Quebec nationalism throughout history and traces the development of Quebec separatism in the 1960s.
