The following excerpts are from a forthcoming Monthly Review Press book, White Niggers of America, The Precocious Autobiography of a Quebec "Terrorist." The author is one of the founders of the new Front de Liberation du Quebec (FLQ). The book—a combination of autobiography, history of Quebec, personal credo, and revolutionary program—was written in jail and has heretofore been available on this continent only in scarce and repeatedly banned French editions. Widely regarded as the most important document of the Quebec resistance movement, Vallieres' book has been published in France, with, editions forthcoming in German, Spanish, Japanese, and other languages. The Monthly Review Press edition, translated by Joan Pinkham, is expected at the end of January. —The Editors.
