Tout en brossant une minutieuse étude des mentalités, Marc Durand retrace l'histoire du Québec depuis sa découverte par Jacques Cartier, en 1534, jusqu'à nos jours. Fiers de leur esprit aventurier et entreprenant, mais battus par les Anglais en 1759, les Québécois, mis à l'écart de l'économie par les vainqueurs, vont se replier sur les travaux agricoles. L'Église et les intellectuels s'appliqueront alors sans relâche à préserver une langue française « pure » ainsi que leurs traditions ancestrales. Mais à partir des années 1950, et surtout avec los angeles Révolution tranquille des années 60, les Québécois rejettent les valeurs rurales dont ils se sentent prisonniers et, qu'ils soient acquis ou non à l'idée de souveraineté, prennent en major leur destinée économique et politique.
