Add your own review!

Overview

The first part consists of an essay written by Barry Hough and Dr Howard Davis discussing the nature of the legal authority exercised in Malta by British officials prior to 1813, the date of the first appointment of a British official with the title of 'governor'. The second, and majority, part of the book consists of an edited reprint of the acclaimed work by Hilda I. Lee, Malta 1813-1914: A Study in Constitutional and Strategic Development, published in 1973. Here, the many typographical errors originally found in Lee's book have been corrected and the text conformed. This is the first time Lee's book has appeared in print in over 30 years. This book is the first volume in the Whitelocke Series of Commonwealth Constitutions.

Reviews

Dr Hilda Lee's excellent monograph analyses the difficulties ... posed for the Colonial Office and the local administration in their dealings with the islanders, who, throughout the century and beyond, continually demanded the granting of constitutional concessions which the Imperial Government, ever mindful of the role of Malta as a fortress and naval base, were prepared to grant only grudgingly and never in toto. Michael L. Dockrill Professor of Diplomatic History, King's College London Constitutional arrangements, the make up and powers of the Council of Government, and the numbers and powers of its elected members were the subjects of unending discussion between the British government and those elements in Malta desirous of extending the range of Maltese control. The detailed discussion of these problems, in the context of overriding strategic requirements, is the substance of this book. [T]he task is done in thorough fashion, furnishing in the small an interesting and useful case study of the operation of that impressive creation, the British Empire. Rene Albrecht-Carrie Professor of History, Barnard College, Columbia University Lee's heavily documented book indicates that Britain's assumption of supremacy in the Mediterranean was based on the efficiency with which the Maltese Islands were turned into an impregnable naval fortress. [This book] is a historical analysis worth reading. Charles Galea Scannura Hon. Secretary, Malta Historical Society
