Diaspora: Maltese Overseas Settlement

9789993277712
Hardback

Description

In this volume Henry Frendo explores the migratory experience with special reference to the Maltese diaspora. On a per capita basis, from a small island in the central Mediterranean, this has been quite astounding, especially from the 18th century onwards. Although thousands of Maltese islanders left for North Africa and the UK, the focus here is on the Mediterranean region and Australia, where the author himself was a migrant. One of his recurring concerns is the retention or loss of identity in the different countries of settlement.
