“This is a fascinating collection of articles which discuss issues too often ignored or avoided. The themes range from politics to religion and from racism, history and peace. The book brings together a wide range of original writers – all platitude free. Their mutual expertise makes for a wonderfully rich literary mix.” – Bruce Kent, Vice President CND
Jottings… and Reflections, is a dialogic exercise wherein a number of scholars and experts in different fields reflect critically on themes on which the author of the articles had himself jotted some thoughts. The writings attempt to provoke critical thought outside the normal ruts in relation to democracy, politics, religion, immigration, peace, Malta’s neutrality, history writing, popular art and the presuppositions and assumptions that riddle our thoughts and discourse. The intent of this work is not to be overly scholarly in nature, rather, through everyday jottings, to get people stimulated and discussing various issues of the day.
