An Illustrated History of Quebec

Tradition and Modernity

Peter Gossage and Jack Little

Illustrated History of Canada

  • Beautifully illustrated. Over 100 photos, paintings, political cartoons, and maps - including full-colour reproductions and rare archival images - present a visual narrative of Quebec's history.
  • Detailed captions. Fully explained captions point out important aspects of historical figures, architecture, painting, and geography throughout the province.
  • Clear, concise writing. This accessible book highlights key moments and personalities in Quebec's history in language for the everyday reader.
  • Even-handed approach. The authors present the facts impartially, giving an even-handed account for their readers.
  • Unique perspective. Quebec society can be studied through many angles (French vs. English, catholic vs. protestant, sovereignty vs. federalism) - here the authors examine the province through the tension between tradition and modernity.
