Abstract: One of the most important sociological phenomena which have affected the population of Malta as a whole and that of Gozo in particular is no doubt the phenomenon of migration. This has been with us since the last century, but has been particular marked in the 1950s and 60s when thousands o.f persons left Malta, sometimes in a single month. In this book by Professor M.N.Cauchi, we find several chapters which delineate the many issues that have affected migrants, and the impact of migration on the country of origin as well as the host country. We find extensive chapters on language maintenance, education, multiculturalism, settlement issues, as well as a chapter on the second generation in Australia. Perhaps the most significant of all from Malta's point of view is the chapter on the migrant contribution to this country.
