"The definitive book on the subject." Jeffrey Simpson, Globe and Mail. "In this thoughtful, essentially non-partisan volume, Young presents an overview of the various legal, constitutional, economic, political and cultural facets of Quebec separatism. While ignoring trivial and uninformed opinions, he provides a fair and balanced summary and analysis of the key arguments that have been advanced in this debate by both separatists and federalists." Rory Leishman, London Free Press. "A comprehensive, dispassionate survey of the issues at stake, and the positions and tactics both sides are likely to adopt once the negotiations begin." Eric McGeer, Quill and Quire.
