Old Province of Quebec

Alfred Leroy Burt

Old Province of Quebec

The life span of the old province of Quebec, stretching from the British conquest to the division into Upper and Lower Canada in 1791, includes events and decisions in public policy which have had a determining influence not only on the history of the Dominion but of the continent. Problems of race and religion, the impact of the American Revolution, the Loyalist migration, and the intricacies of Indian diplomacy crowd the scene. On all of these Professor Burt has provided illuminating, and frequently new, interpretations....

...There is not question as to the value of Professor Burt’s book. It reveals at every turn an exhaustive and discriminating use of the great mass of documentary material which is available, and it will without doubt take its place as the basic work upon the subject. -George W. Brown, University of Toronto
