An excellent look into a specific and pivotal period in Quebec history. The title does present a difficult mental hurdle.

While the title of this book is offensive, it certainly is a thought-provoking look at French-Canada, as well as a fascinating piece of political history.

Pierre Vallières memoirs written in jail. Not much on his case except for some court material. I also would have expected more on Ideology.
Lisa
Read this as part of my research for my dissertation on Quebec politics.
