    Content Notes: 
    Translation of: Brève histoire de Montréal.
    From the Iroquoian community of Hochelaga to the bustling economic metropolis that Montreal has become, Linteau describes the social, economic, political, and cultural forces and trends that have driven the city's development, shedding light on the city's French, British, and American influences. Outlining Montreal's diverse ethnic and cultural origins and its strategic geographical position, he shows how a small missionary colony founded in 1642 developed into a leading economic city and cultural center, the thriving cosmopolitan hub of French-speaking North America.
    Includes bibliographical references (p. [199]-201) and index.
