A biography of one of the most charismatic politicians that Quebec - and Canada - has ever known. Graham Fraser paints a vivid portrait of one of the most dynamic political figures of the 20th century, Rene Levesque, describes the origins of the Parti Quebecois and gives a graphic account of key events that still resonate in Canadian political life: Quebec's language law, the 1980 referendum and the patriation of the constitution. This second edition contains a new preface in which Fraser completes the story of the last months of the Parti Quebecois government and the period leading up to Levesque's death in 1987, detailing how Levesque's leadership continues to mark his successors.
