James Kennedy will present his latest book: Liberal Nationalisms, Empire, State, and Civil Society in Scotland and Québec

 James Kennedy, a sociologist and Professor at the University of Edinburgh, will be at the Québec Government Office in London on September 26, 2013 to present his latest work entitled Liberal Nationalisms, Empire, State, and Civil Society in Scotland and Québec. The book came out in April 2013 and was published by McGill-Queen’s University Press.

The comparative study focuses on the Young Scots’ Society and the Ligue nationaliste canadienne, two nationalist groups founded in the early 20th century that put forward nationalist ideas imbued with liberalism in Scotland and Québec.

 

In his book, James Kennedy shows how decisions made by the British Empire and the Canadian government led to the development of nationalism in Québec and Scotland. He stresses in passing the major role played by rivalries over power, consociation, the federation system and the clergy.
