A journey into Malta's checkered history through the seven basic elements that most influenced its roots and made Malta what it is: sea, rock, water, food, faith, war, and celebration. The author and photographer narrate, through words and pictures, each of these elements, transforming every chapter into an explosion of verve and colour depicting the Maltese way of life, its culture, traditions, and gastronomy.
This book is a fresh approach to the island's history from the dawn of civilisation through to the threshold of the new millennium and its membership in the European Union.
There is very slight shelf wear to the covers of the book. On the full-title is a mark where a label has been removed. Otherwise, it is in excellent condition throughout.
