(From the publisher):
Rock Black 0-10 explores the issues of national identity and youthful alienation in the Gibraltar of the late eighties and early nineties. A cross between a traditional bildungsroman and a straightforward piece of social reportage, it focuses on such thorny and troublesome topics as the late eighies tobacco smuggling scene, the drunken antics of the resident British battalion, the rabidly fanatical hatred which Spaniards felt for Gibraltarians (and vice-versa) back then, and the various hedonistic delights to be encountered in the nearby Costa del Sol.
