Synopsis

The Making of the Nations and Cultures of the New World An Essay in Comparative History by Gerard Bouchard

A comparative, post-colonial exploration of how the collectivities of the New World became nations

Reviews

A masterful work on the evolution of new collectivities and their preoccupations with identity, in which the originality of the thinking and the elegance of the style are matched by extensive research and the topicality of the theme. This plea for comparative history takes a new look at Quebec society and the path it has taken in the world. Governor General's Literary Awards Jury
