Abstract: This dissertation deals with the relationship between the State and land developers with reference to the development of the Hilton Redevelopment Project in Malta. The study will show how the State and the land developers formed part of a power bloc through which both stood to gain from the exploitation of land. The State benefited through the generation of economic growth, while the land developers legitimated their material gain through the State Apparatus. The research methodology used in this dissertation is a historical one, based on documentary research and fieldwork. The dissertation uses a neo-Marxist class-centric theoretical approach, with reference to the development of capitalism in Malta in general and the Hilton Redevelopment Project in particular.
