9780199283941: The Black Sea: A History

The lands surrounding the Black Sea share a colorful past. Though in recent decades they have experienced ethnic conflict, economic collapse, and interstate rivalry, their common heritage and common interests run deep. Now, as a region at the meeting point of the Balkans, Central Asia, and the Middle East, the Black Sea is more important than ever. In this lively and entertaining book, which is based on extensive research in multiple languages, Charles King investigates the myriad connections that have made the Black Sea more of a bridge than a boundary, linking religious communities, linguistic groups, empires, and later, nations and states.

About the Author:


Charles King is the Ion Ratiu Chair of Romanian Studies and Associate Professor in the School of Foreign Service and the Department of Government at Georgetown University.

Review:


"King is eloquent in bemoaning the ecological destruction caused by post-Second World War industrialization. The general reader and the specialist will read King's book with pleasure and profit. May it encourage other scholars to turn their attention to a much neglected region."--The International History Review


"This is a book of enormous scope that excels in innovation and fresh insight.... A book covering 2700 years in 276 pages would appear to face formidable obstacles. Charles King, however puts all doubts to rest. His argument does not waver and his strokes of insight surprise us on every page. This is one we all ought to read.--Peter Weisensel, The Russian Review
