New documents at www.socialisthistory.com

The Quebec left is not well-known in English Canada, so we’re very 
pleased to make available – for the first time in English -- two essays 
on the history of the left in Quebec since 1970. Many thanks to Richard 
Fidler for these translations.

** Francois Moreau examines the Maoist current in Quebec, which played 
a big role in the 1970s. 

** Bernard Rioux reviews the evolution of the Quebec Trotskyist 
movement from the Groupe Marxiste Révolutionnaire to Gauche socialiste.
