Nominated for the Governor-General's Award for Non-Fiction, Ren#65533; L#65533;vesque and the Parti Qu#65533;b#65533;cois in Power has been described as the classic work on one of the most important periods in recent Quebec history. Graham Fraser paints a vivid portrait of one of the most dynamic political figures of the twentieth century, describes the origins of the Parti Qu#65533;b#65533;cois, 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. In a new preface, Fraser completes the story of the last months of the PQ government and the period leading up to L#65533;vesque's death in 1987, detailing how L#65533;vesque's leadership continues to mark his successors.
