About the Author

During his twenty-two years as a professor in the Department of Geography at Universite Laval, Serge Courville authored or co-authored some seventeen books, including an ambitious comparative study of colonization and immigration in Canada. Richard Howard has been translating books from the French, chiefly in the social sciences, for over three decades.


"More than a book, this is a dictionary, an encyclopedia. It's a volume that can be read not just from beginning to end but also diagonally, from back to end, and from top to bottom... Clearly written, chock-full of figures, tables, and maps, and including an extensive bibliography, it is ideal for class use and will be of interest to all those who study and teach history. - Patrice A. Dutil, Associate Professor, Department of Politics and Public Administration, Ryerson University"
