Party politics in a fortress colony : the Maltese experience Collection home page Statistics


"Although the work focuses on the emergence of party rivalry and national sentiment in the islands of Malta and Gozo, the historical and sociological dimensions complement the political one, as Frendo examines the interaction of society and politics during the colonial period. Thus The Maltese Experience is of interest not only as one of political conflict within the former British Empire -and the development of a two-party system, but is also important as a study of Mediterranean life in general, and t he formation of national character in Malta in particular. It provides the best general account of the origins of Maltese party politics and national identity in the English language." Prof. Frank Coppa, New York. Canadian Review of Studies in Nationalism.
