Gibraltar : a modern history

"Gibraltar's strategic position at the mouth of the Mediterranean virtually guaranteed that its history would be filled with military and political conflict, and for centuries, it was, as the Rock was fought over by Rome and Carthage, Spain and the Moors, before finally coming under lasting British control in 1704. Gibraltar: A Modern History tells the story of the island and its people from that point, showing how an authentic Gibraltarian community arose as the British Empire first grew, then declined. Drawing on and enhancing recent scholarship on the Rock's history by bringing together extensive archival research and developments in the secondary literature surrounding British Gibraltar, this first twenty-first-century treatment of the Rock's history will not only augment but in many ways replace older treatments of Gibraltar's history."--Pub. desc.
