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.
