about

An authority on French Canadian and English Canadian relations, Ramsay Cook was born in Alameda, Saskatchewan. After receiving his undergraduate degree from the University of Manitoba in 1954, he went on to Queen's University for his M.A. He continued his studies at the University of Toronto, from which he earned a Ph.D. in 1960. During the 1960s, he wrote a series of essays that brought an encyclopedic knowledge of both French Canadian and English Canadian history to bear on the crisis provoked by Quebec's Quiet Revolution. The essays show how a command of the historical past can enlighten our grasp of the present. Cook, who shares Pierre Trudeau's vision of a bilingual, bicultural Canada within existing constitutional arrangements, is one of Canada's most distinguished historians. He taught at the University of Toronto and was a visiting professor of Canadian studies at Harvard University. From 1978 to 1983, he served as Chairman of the Institute for Historical Microreproduction. A former editor of the Canadian Historical Review, he also served as editor of both the Canadian Centenary Series and the Dictionary of Canadian Biography.

Born in Quebec, Jean Hamelin obtained graduate training during the 1950s in Paris, where French scholars such as Fernand Braudel and Pierre Goubert had begun to redefine the historians' tasks. They composed "total" histories that analyzed long-term changes in social and economic structures, encompassed the lives of ordinary people, and recreated mentalities. In his doctoral thesis, Hamelin asked why New France lacked a powerful business class. Rather than employing a clerico-nationalist perspective, he applied the quantitative techniques of his Annales mentors and concluded that the entire economy of New France had been seriously flawed. Hamelin's work failed to persuade some critics. Nonetheless, his emphasis on the primacy of socioeconomic questions and his use of quantitative data have been taken up by many historians in Quebec who challenge the nationalistic interpretations of Lionel Groulx and his disciples.
