Philip Resnick explores what makes B.C. stand apart as a region of Canada. He looks at the views of politicians, opinion-makers, and ordinary British Columbians on the challenges posed by Quebec nationalism, on their sense of estrangement from central Canada, and on what they see as the future of Canadian unity. He concludes with an examination of the likely B.C. response in the event of a "yes" vote in any future Quebec referendum on sovereignty. Clearly written and provocative, The Politics of Resentment provides a new way of thinking about British Columbia's place within the Canadian federation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Resnick finds that there is a correlation between ill will toward Quebec and opposition to treaty-making, and resentment is an important feature of the mindset that imagines Quebeckers and aboriginal peoples enjoying "special" privileges. -- Terry Glavin * the Georgia Straight *
For some quick answers (to what British Columbians really want, people) should pick up Philip Resnick's new book, The Politics of Resentment: British Columbia Regionalism and Canadian Unity. -- Robert Matas * The Globe and Mail *
The Politics of Resentment analyzes B.C.'s contributions to unity debates, poetry, fiction, academic writings and hotline rantings to get at the question: What makes B.C. stand apart as a region of Canada? -- Tom Barrett * Vancouver Sun *
