The Paradox of Liberal Nationalism

Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on the paradox in the Quebec-Canada relationship. Quebec nationalists have become increasingly preoccupied with maintaining their provincial jurisdiction despite the fact that they share the same basic values as other Canadians. The vast majority of Canadians have no desire to ‘get’ or insult Quebecers. This paradox is explored by the essays in Carens’ book, which are described in detail.

Keywords: Quebec; Canada; liberal nationalism; paradox; provincial jurisdiction
