Description

NEW TITLE:  Black Monday, A Night of Mob Violence by Victor Aquilina is a first-hand account of the burning down of The Times building on 15 October 1979 by Labour Party thugs.  It also chronicles attacks during the same night the ransacking of the home of the then Nationalist Party leader Eddie Fenech Adami. In the words of law and media professor Kevin Aquilina, Black Monday symbolizes a breakdown of the high virtues of the rule of law, democracy, and freedom of the press. Black Monday, A night of mob violence gives the background to the troubled relationship between the Times of Malta and the Labour Party, and goes into some length into the shooting at Castille on the morning of 15 October 1979. 

The author of this title, Victor Aquilina, is a former editor of the Times of Malta and Malta correspondent for the Associated Press. He is the author of Strickland House, The standard-bearers and launching of the Times of Malta, Book One: 1921–1935 (2010); Strickland House, Times of Malta at war and Labour Party’s sweeping victory, Book Two: 1935–1947 (2015), and Lord Strickland: Plots and Intrigue in Colonial Malta (2019).
