Drawing on his rich experience in public service and teaching, Jacques Parizeau, former premier of Quebec, explains in these pages how the idea of an independent Quebec first took root and evolved. This is the first book of Parizeau's political writing to be translated into English, and it provides lively commentary on the Quiet Revolution in the 1960s, on the the author's career as finance minister under Premier Rene Levesque, and on his own administration in the mid-1990s. Parizeau also examines Quebec's current economic, political, social and cultural situation and reviews options for future development.
