Gibraltar and Its People by Philip Dennis
In this account of the rock of Gibraltar's history, economic and social life, the author attempts to set the scene for a clear and balanced view of Gibraltar today and in the future. The book examines Gibraltar's position as a British colony, and Spanish claims to sovereignty. Comparisons with other colonies, such as Hong Kong and the Falklands under the British wing and Ceuta and Melilla of Spain, help to set Gibraltar's circumstances in perspective. Its place within the European Community is also considered. There are also chapters on Gibraltar's natural heritage, culture, commerce and industry.
