Book Review for James A.O.C. Brown's, Crossing the strait

Morocco, Gibraltar, and Great Britain in the 18th and 19th Centuries


James A.O.C. Brown’s study of economic and diplomatic relations between British Gibraltar and Alawite Morocco offers more than simply a political history. Rather, Brown aptly employs a socio-historical methodology, allowing him to explore the dynamic mechanisms and developments of these relations.
