Title: The Malta Language Question
Author: Hull Geoffrey (1994)
In this case study in cultural imperialism the author examines the complex and controversial phenomenon of language in the Maltese Islands, between Europe and North Africa, caught in the cross-fire between Western Liberalism and Fascism. The author studies the politicization of trilingualism (Maltese, Italian, English) in the British Crown Colony from post-1861 Malta to the present day. Relying on linguistic and ethnological facts he seeks to discover the identity of the Maltese.
