Quebec Questions: Quebec Studies for the Twenty-First Century is a contributed, multidisciplinary text that examines Quebec history from social, cultural, and political perspectives. Editors Jarrett Rudy, Stephan Gervais, and Christopher Kirkey bring together experts from a variety of fields to create a contributed text on the history of Quebec that is the first of its kind in the English language. Much more than a mere survey text, Quebec Questions engages students with questions such as is Quebec distinct?, what makes Quebec distinct?, what is its relationship with the rest of Canada?, and what is its place on the world stage? In addition to the editors' introductions, which provide a framework and context for each of the text's parts, an expansive pedagogical program in every chapter, including a timeline, a biographical sketch of a key figure, a profile of a significant event, critical-thinking questions, a select bibliography, and relevant websites for further exploration. The broad and inclusive format of Quebec Questions will ensure its appropriateness for the growing number of courses examining Quebec through a variety of lenses.

"It is chronological as well as thematic. It is event-based as well as issues-based. It is interdisciplinary and inclusive... This book addresses the student and interested general reader, and does much to present a well-balanced view of Quebec to an English-speaking public.. [Quebec Questions
offers] a wide-ranging selection of essays, biographies, and timelines - all excellent material for a well-rounded understanding of issues related to Quebec's past and present."
--Molly Ungar, University of the Fraser Valley
"This [text] skillfully integrates articles from several academic fields to reflect the inter-disciplinary nature of Quebec Studies. The chronological ordering of historical pieces on New France, the Conquest, post-Rebellion Quebec, and Canadian federalism and Quebec nationalism is apt. The
reader is attentive to a broad range of topics comprising French Canada, Quebec culture (literature, music, theatre), Aboriginal history, religion, language, politics, gender, ethnicity, regional, and international issues."
--Kathleen Lord, Mount Allison University
