Beschreibung

Malta's independence was achieved despite a confusion of internal conflicts. The author examines the importance of the cults of saints and the bitter rivalry between them. Both in its description of village festive and political life and in the analysis of conflicts and factions, this book is a contribution to political anthropology.
