The Question of Separatism: Quebec and the Struggle over Sovereignty

Front Cover
Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, Nov 2, 2016 - Political Science - 192 pages
Jane Jacobs, writing from her adoptive country, uses the problems facing an independence-seeking Quebec and Canada as a whole to examine the universal problem of sovereignty and autonomy that nations great and small have struggled with throughout history. Using Norway’s relatively peaceful divorce from Sweden as an example, Jacobs contends that Canada and Canadians—Quebecois and Anglophones alike—can learn important lessons from similar sovereignty questions of the past.
