Beyond the Quiet RevolutionBook - 1990
Quebec is currently a Canadian province and home to the second-largest French-speaking metropolis in the world and the largest French-speaking society in North America. It has, however, by virtue of its history and political development, distinguished itself as more than merely a sub-national unit. Over the past thirty years, it has assumed a significant role in international politics through its position in the Francophonie and its cultural role in the consolidation of French-speaking society in the midst of an English-speaking continent. Moreover, Quebec is unique within North America as a highly autonomous state seeking increasing integration into the New World Order while preserving its cultural specificity.
