The purpose of this paper is to examine some of the major characteristics both historical and modern of the nationalist movement in Quebec. The writer points out that while it is true that Quebec nationalism could be traced all the way back to the late eighteenth century it is more accurate to say that Quebec nationalism is a product of the 1960s and subsequent decades when the appropriate political came to power in Quebec.
From the Paper:"If ever there was a modern case of the conflict and confusion that can be brought on by nationalist movements, then Quebec is that example. Nationalism in Quebec has been at near fever pitch since the 1960s, though the urgency associated with the political movement has died down somewhat in recent years. Nevertheless, Quebec nationalism is part of a long political and cultural tradition that traces its roots back to the English takeover of French Canada in 1759. Since that time, the francophone population in Quebec has quietly (and not so quietly) nursed its resentment of the control the English have over them."
