France in the Maltese Collective Memory Perceptions, Perspectives, Identities after Bonaparte in British Malta
Retrieving memories from the French interlude of 1798-1800 the author presents current academic theories of collective memory and researched documents – some for the first time – in Malta and abroad to argue the case for Malta’s identity as perceived by different generations from various perspectives. Dr. Xuereb challenges the veracity of what Maltese history has been saying for the past 200 years about this crucial event and the British period that followed, provoking a debate by investigating and analyzing new perspectives and arguments.
