The papers making up Fragments cover a variety of aspects of Malta’s late 19th and early 20th century. The subjects chosen can, in some sense, be considered marginal to the ‘grand’ political history of the Maltese Islands during that period, hence Fragments. They focus on diverse social, political and cultural aspects of Malta’s history that have been broadly ignored. In so doing, they assist in providing a deeper understanding of Malta’s colonial predicament and of the processes of change underlying different strata of Maltese society during the period.
