This month the Malta University Press is launching three new, pioneering works. These are Speakers' Rulings in the Parliament of Malta: The Legislative Assembly 1921-1924, an edited compilation in two volumes of Speakers’ rulings during Malta’s first legislature in 1921-1924, by Professor Raymond Mangion, who teaches history of legislation; The Maltese Legal System, Volume 1, A General Introduction, a first ever critical and analytical overview of the Maltese corpus juris, written by Professor David J. Attard, the University Chancellor and Director of the International Maritime Law Institute, to be followed by a subsequent complementary volume; and Ġan Anton Vassallo, Il-Poeżiji, by leading poet and litterateur, Professor Oliver Friggieri at the University of Malta.

Speakers' Rulings in the Parliament of Malta   The Maltese Legal System    Ġan Anton Vassallo, Il-Poeżiji

In introducing these volumes the chairman of the University of Malta's editorial board, Professor Henry Frendo, said that the Speakers' Rulings in the Parliament of Malta would be an indispensable work of reference for members of the legislature, students of parliamentary history, politicians and future presidents of the House; whereas The Maltese Legal System would serve as a 'vade mecum' for all law students and be of special interest to members of the legal profession as well as to anyone concerned with the rule of law. The book on the poetry of Ġan Anton Vassallo a romantic-patriotic forerunner of Dun Karm Psaila best known for his poem 'Tifħira lil Malta', is the first comprehensive anthology of his poetry in Maltese ever to be published.

In thanking all authors and editors for their painstaking original contributions to knowledge and to society, Professor Frendo said that the Malta University Press was proud to be celebrating half-a-century of academic publishing, with some of its very first publications - on Maltese folklore by Guzè Cassar Pullicino, and on human rights documentation by Professor J.J. Cremona - dating back to 1964.
MUP, which rigorously peer reviews all texts submitted for publication in accordance with its procedures, has no connection to any other publisher. The next volume on Maltese mediaeval documentation, compiled, edited and annotated by Professor Stanley Fiorini, Documentary Sources of Maltese History, Part II: Documents in the State Archives, Palermo, no.4 : Cancelleria Regia: 1485-1500, is in the press.
