The institutions that help or hinder the management of conflict in Canada; how both fear and confidence and a sense of rejection stimulate Quebec nationalism and could lead to separation; the sources of English-Canadian opposition to Quebec nationalism: these and related basic issues are nicely analyzed in clear essays that go well beneath the surface in a book that is especially useful to non-Canadians. The authors are very reasonable and would be satisfied with compromises but do not commit themselves as to whether the citizenry would feel the same.
