The Quiet Revolution typically refers to the efforts made.

Wow! what a wild hell of a ride. One where we can experience the turbulent, exhilarating madness of Quebec's [not so] Quiet Revolution. At first I thought Carrier might be the francophone Mordecai Richler, but not far into the book he displays humour too crude & out of control for this comparison to stand up. The way it is written is beyond satire.3/5.   But there was a difference that Igartua really does not wrestle with: Quebec's Quiet Revolution unleashed the hounds of a not-so-quiet revolutionary nationalist aspiration in ways that were not paralleled in English Canada, which perhaps suggests differences in national identity that are skirted in this book. HISTORY AND RELATED ISSUES under the direction of Denis Latulippe This document is an English translation of selected chapters (preface, conclusion, and chapters 1, 2, and 14) from La sécurité sociale au Québec – Histoire et enjeux, published in   7 Besides the 81 percent of Quebec's approximately six million people for whom French is the mother tongue, 13 percent listed English and 6 percent listed another language as their mother tongue.
