After 1867, for almost a hundred years, Canada was able to leave unresolved certain key constitutional questions. However, many of these issues have recently returned to the surface. One in particular--the role and place of Quebec--threatens to tear the country apart. Why was this issue avoided for so long, how has Canada tried to deal with it, and what is to be done now? This book explores these and other questions in light of Canada's constitutional past and political present.

What we were able to maintain was a state of "settled unsettlement". The country then entered a period of "unsettled settlement" that was driven largely by Quebec nationalism.
