The Black Sea

Charles King (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Over the long sweep of history it is difficult to argue that the lands around the Black Sea have been more volatile, a sense of ethnic identity more deeply felt, or questions of land, custom, and religion more divisive than in any other part of Europe or Eurasia. At times the region has been a frontier between different empires and civilizations; at other times, it has been a well-integrated part of broader European—even global—economic and political relationships. The ecology of the sea itself set the stage for long periods of interaction and exchange.

Keywords:   civilization, ecology, empire, ethnic identity, Eurasia, Europe, frontier, identity, nation, region, religion
