Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: "Based on a study of the 6,700 editorials published in Le Devoir during the Henri Bourassa years (1910 32), this volume seeks to outline the ideological positions defended by Bourassa as French-Canadian nationalism was emerging for the first time in full force. During these two decades, Le Devoir was instrumental in defining the place of French speakers in Canada and in spelling out their aspirations as a separate people within the federation. The book is an anthology of sixty of the most significant editorials, translated into English, each situated in its historical context by the editor, historian Pierre Anctil. Examined together, the editorials offer a global picture of the evolution of French Canada at a crucial time in its history. They also paint a clear image of the tensions that emerged between Francophone and Anglophone Canada shortly after the signing of Confederation and at the turn of the twentieth century."-- Provided by publisher.
