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.
