In his Foreward, the author summarised his reasons for publishing this book as follows:
“Firstly, Maltese as a whole are well known to be rather diffident in projecting themselves within society. This is an attempt to publicise their work and give credit where it is due. Publication of this information in book form and in the English language would, one hopes, make possible also non-Maltese readership.
Secondly, the achievements of many persons mentioned in this book are mostly unknown except perhaps to those from the same profession. One is indeed surprised to see the extent of involvement of Maltese-background peersons in society in Australia.
Thirdly, it is hoped that other members of the younger generation would be inspired by the achievement of persons of Maltese origin and would come to have a more positive appreciation of those with a Maltese backgroound having pride in our culture is also a weakness which has cast a shadow on Maltese settlement in Australia.”
