Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Marcel Trudel influenced a generation of French-Canadian historians. He always strove for intellectual freedom, sometimes scandalizing the French-Canadian religious and academic establishment. In 1960 he shocked readers when he revealed the prevalence of slavery in New France and later explored the life of Chiniquy, the Catholic priest who became a Protestant pastor. Although now widely admired in English and French Canada, Trudel's uncompromising research methods earned him much criticism as he demolished the myths of New France's heroes. Memoirs of a Less Travelled Road is deeply informative about the conflicting attitudes that led to Quebec's Quiet Revolution. Trudel portrays the closed world of his childhood, and the trials and triumphs of academic life.

Synopsis:

Memoirs of a Less Traveled Road: A Historian's Life

Synopsis:

Marcel Trudel is renowned for his pioneering work in documenting the French regime in Canada and leading the way for later historians of French Canada. Always striving for intellectual freedom, he scandalized the French-Canadian religious community in 1945 with a ground-breaking book on Voltaire. He shocked readers in 1960 when he revealed the prevalence of slavery in New France. This book is by turns amusing, touching and deeply informative about the conflicting attitudes that led to Quebec's Quiet Revolution.

About the Author

Marcel Trudel has earned the nickname “Monsieur Nouvelle-France” for his pioneering work in documenting the French Régime in Canada and leading the way for later generations of historians of French Canada. Always striving for intellectual freedom, he scandalized his milieu by writing about such apostates as Voltaire early in his career. Widely respected by colleagues in French and English Canada, he has published some 30 books.
