Abstract: This study kit is designed to stimulate discussion about the struggle in Quebec for nationhood. It is oriented primarily to small groups already in the process of political study.
The learning objectives of the kit are: 1) to place current debate and struggle in a historical context, 2) to understand better the limitations of and the possibilities for change through the Parti Quebecois, 3) to evaluate historical and current struggles in the light of political theory, 4) to discover if it is in the self-interest of those outside of Quebec to support the struggle of the Quebecois for independence.
