Reading More on the Quiet Revolution
January 26, 2013 8:23 AM Subscribe
I want to read more about the cultural history of Quebec's Quiet Revolution
, a short period in which suddenly the people of the province became more secularized and the pace of life revolved less and less around their traditional Catholic faith. What are some good papers and books about this?

I have read this paper
, but it focuses a lot on the economic changes, statistical shifts in economic well-being, and changes in government policy. This book
seems focused on the origins of the Quiet Revolution rather than what went on during the period of the Quiet Revolution itself. I am more interested in reading more about the cultural influences that precipitated secularization in Quebec during the Quiet Revolution, perhaps in the form of an oral history that interviews those who experienced that period of time.
