The Anglos: The Hidden face of Quebec City, Volume 2, Since 1850

The Anglos: The Hidden Face of Quebec City Volume 2 sweeps through the soot and grind of the industrial revolution, the afternoon tea-time of empire, and the shock of two world wars. It traces the footsteps of those who provoked, soothed, ignored or fled Quebec’s religious and ethnic divisions, proud nationalisms and language debates. This book, the first to tell the anglophone story, opens a window on the adventures of Jewish, Chinese and Greek immigrants who joined the anglophone community and jolted it from its Celtic and Anglo-Saxon certitudes; it follows the agony of its dying institutions and the birth of new ones, and winds up in the little but lively anglophone village of today.
