This study marks the 400th anniversary of the founding of Quebec and consists of six essays by a team of contributors drawn from Quebec, the USA, France and the UK. It explores the concept of Franco-American heritage as not a modern remnant of a lost French North American empire but a thriving entity that grew in both vitality and geographical spread in the centuries after the Conquest of 1759. Two things are fundamental to the essays in the collection: Franco-America’s heritage was neither French nor American but something different and unique from both; and its geographical extent spread far beyond Quebec province, where it was born, and penetrated into large parts of so-called Anglo-America – in other words it was continental rather than provincial in nature.
