During the period 1955 to 1958, various aspects of the geography of the Maltese Islands were studied by individuals and group members of the Department of Geography in the Durham Colleges. The several studies were carried out independently although there was naturally much mutual consultation. The particular approach adopted by the writer of this thesis may be described as a study in social geography. Necessarily, some of the basic material (statistics, reports, etc.) was used by some or all of those concerned but the direction of the whole project involving work carried out for the Malta Government, the Colonial Office, etc., resulted in the segregation of the various investigations. In the compilation of this thesis studies in other specific fields, produced contemporaneously, are-therefore frequently referred to. The fieldwork in the l4altese Islands between January, 1957, and April, 1958, was made possible by the financial sponsoring of research in this subject qy the Colonial Economic Research Committee, to whom a report is being submitted. l'he candidate in fact held a Colonial Development and Welfare Research Fellowship from 1956 to 1958 •.
