La Compania General De Tabacos De Filipinas 1881 - 1981 by Emili Giralt Raventos
The book is much more than a book about the history of tobacco in the Philippines. The majority of the book are devoted to a history of the Philippines.
"The evolution of the company went very tied to the historical events of the Philippines –colony Spanish, when she established there–, but that from the Treaty of Paris of 1898 he went to being part of the economical area of the United States. Since then the cigarette case had the consideration of foreign company in the island. However, the company knew how to avoid the obstacles that kept on mediating and today still continues active, everything and that with a disposition very different to that of his first years of history." - Arxiu Nacional de Catalunya.
