The beginning:
Contemporary Canada: Quebec Society before and after the Quiet Revolution
This is a 2000-word essay that looks at Quebec society before and after the Quiet Revolution and assesses the impact of the aforementioned Quiet Revolution. The paper will begin by highlighting the main features of Quebecois life under Maurice Duplessis; from there, the essay will turn to look at how the 1960s suddenly brought about a stunning overthrow of old linchpins of the society – religiosity, universal marriage, high birth rates, and traditionalism or a sense that the ideas and practices of the past were possessed of a timeless quality. Not stopping there, the essay will look at how the Quiet Revolution effectively broke the back of the Roman Catholic Church...
