Publisher: McClelland & Stewart
Translated and adapted by Patricia Claxton

Volume VIII of the Canadian Centenary Series

Now available as e-books for the first time, the Canadian Centenary Series is a comprehensive nineteen-volume history of the peoples and lands which form Canada. Although the series is designed as a unified whole so that no part of the story is left untold, each volume is complete in itself.

Professor Ouellet traces the impact of some of the changes wrought in Lower Canada at the close of the eighteenth century, after thirty years of British rule, to offer an analysis of the historical roots of nationalism and the traditional struggle for social change in the province of Quebec.

First published in 1980, Fernand Ouellet’s important contribution to the Canadian Centenary Series is available here as an e-book for the first time.
