dc.description.abstractThe Maltese patriotic consensus, besides postulating that, ideally, the people should control internal affairs, especially public expenditure, embodied, so far, a more or less standard view of patria: Malta was Catholic by religion, Italian by cultural heritage, Maltese through local attachments, habits and expectations. The 'British occupation, however, led gradually to the creation of different kinds of jobs, opportunities and associations, so that the life styles and outlooks of many people began to change: in the third generation since 1800 these people were beginning to make their influence felt. Political beliefs, reflecting the fortress-colony's changing social structure, began to challenge some of the basic assumptions of the traditional outlook until, after a prolonged and bitter struggle, the colonial dynamic altered the patriotic consensus, in some respects almost beyond recognition.en_GB
