On connaît Georges-Etienne Cartier comme l'un des Pères de la Confédération canadienne. Insistant peu sur cet aspect de la vie de cet homme politique traité abondamment dans d'autres volumes, Brian Young s'applique à faire ressortir "la participation de Cartier à la transformation de la société montréalaise et à la mise en place de nouvelles institutions sociales, économiques et juridiques". D'abondantes notes bibliographiques et une chronologie ajoutent à la valeur de cet ouvrage

The politics of codification : the Lower Canadian Civil Code of 1866 by Brian J Young( Book )
11 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 217 libraries worldwide
Brian Young interprets codification as part of a larger process that included the collapse of the Lower Canadian rebellions, the decline of seigneurialism, expansion of bourgeois democracy in central Canada, professionalization of the bar, and formation of the institutional state. Central to codification was a profound ideological shift in Lower Canadian society that gave priority to exchange and individual property rights. Young examines the evolution of codification from its nationalist origins in the 1820s and 1830s into a Civil Code that was integral to Confederation and became a flagship of bilingualism in Quebec. The formation of the commission, the work of the codifiers, and the reaction of the anglophone minority and the Roman Catholic hierarchy are considered, as is the Code's meticulous blending of a conservative social vision with the principles of freedom of property
In its corporate capacity : the Seminary of Montreal as a business institution, 1816-1876 by Brian J Young( Book )
13 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 210 libraries worldwide
Since the 1660s, the Seminary of Montreal -- a French, male religious community -- had been an integral part of the merchant, seigneurial, and clerical elite that dominated Montreal. Its significance in pre-industrial society was strengthened by its role as seigneur of Montreal Island and titular parish priest. The Seminary survived the British conquest, but came under increasing attack in the early nineteenth century from industrial producers and large capitalists landlords who resented the Seminary's seigneurial expropriations. By the 1830s, anticlerical elements in the peasantry and other popular classes had joined in the attack

3 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 210 libraries worldwide
Respectable burial : Montreal's Mount Royal Cemetery by Brian J Young( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 111 libraries worldwide
"Respectable Burial is a social history of death, burial, and Montreal's Mount Royal Cemetery. A place of great beauty, the Mount Royal Cemetery was an inspiration for Frederick Law Olmstead's adjacent Mount Royal Park and played a part in the development of the city of Montreal. Brian Young shows how the history of the Mount Royal Cemetery mirrors the evolving social makeup, changing mores, and tragic events of what was long Canada's largest city. He examines the changes in the cemetery's landscaping, architecture, and use and shows how, in its evolution from a rural burying ground founded by Montreal's Protestant elite to an urban cemetery, Mount Royal Cemetery has introduced Montreal to new customs and sensibilities from Jewish, Chinese, Greek Orthodox, Buddhist, and other communities."--Jacket

Une mort très digne : l'histoire du Cimetière Mont-Royal by Brian J Young( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 28 libraries worldwide
Une mort très digne est l'histoire sociale de la mort, de la sépulture et du cimetière Mont-Royal de Montréal. Lieu de grande beauté, le cimetière Mont-Royal a inspiré Henry Law Olmsted lors de la création du parc voisin du Mont-Royal et a joué un rôle notable dans le développement de Montréal. Brian Young démontre que l'histoire du cimetière Mont-Royal renvoie à l'évolution du tissu social, au changement des moeurs et aux événements tragiques dans ce qui a longtemps été la plus grande ville du Canada. Il examine les changements dans l'architecture, l'utilisation et l'aménagement paysager du cimetière et montre comment l'évolution du lieu de sépulture rural fondé par l'élite protestante de Montréal en un cimetière urbain a fait connaître les coutumes et sensibilités différentes des communautés juive, chinoise, grecque orthodoxe, bouddhiste et autres à Montréal
History, religion, and culture : British intellectual history, 1750-1950 by Stefan Collini( Book )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
The essays in History, Religion and Culture begin with discussions of eighteenth-century historiography, especially Gibbon's Decline and Fall; they then take up different aspects of the place of religion in nineteenth-century cultural and political life, such as attitudes toward the native religions of India, the Victorian perception of Oliver Cromwell, the role of the Quarterly Review and the religious sensibility of John Ruskin; and finally, in discussions that range up to the middle of the twentieth century, they explore relations between scientific ideas about change or development and assumptions about the nature and growth of the national community
