French Canada in Transition is a landmark study of the impact of rapid industrialization on small French Canadian communities. First published in 1943 by the University of Chicago Press, it remains one of the most widely cited works of Canadian Sociology. Hughes's careful study of a typicalQuebec city revealed trends and developing fault lines that would only make themselves apparent to less perceptive observers two decades later with the flowering of the so-call "Quiet Revolution."Special features of this Wynford edition included the new introduction by Tepperman, the foreword to the 1963 Chicago paperback by Nathan Keyfitz of the Dominion Bureau of Statistics (predessor to Statistics Canada), and Hughes's own preface to the 1963 reprint, as well as a brief biography ofHughes and selections from important reviews of the book.French Canada in Transition is a Wynford Book-one of a series of titles representing significant milestones in Canadian literature, thought, and scholarship. New introductions place each book in a modern context and show its continuing relevance.
