BOOK - Crofters and Habitants- Settler Society, Economy, and Culture in a Quebec Township, 1848-1881.
By J.I. Little

Hardcover... 79.95 (C$)

Crofters and Habitants... In Crofters and Habitants, J.I. Little examines the ways in which two highly distinct social groups- Gaelic-speaking crofters from the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Herbrides and French-speaking habitants from south of Quebec City- adapted to a common physical environment in the rugged Appalachian plateau of south-eastern Quebec.

    "This is comparative history at its best. Little accomplishes more than a detailed social history of two ethnic groups in a remote Quebec township. He is able to situate the study in the context of modern scholarship and the theoretical frameworks dealing with social change not only in Quebec but in North America, Britain, and, to a degree, Europe... His conclusions are reasoned and thoughtful. This book will be used as a bench-mark for future studies of similar themes."

    Robin B. Burns, Department of History, Bishop's University.
