When the scientific study of the Black Sea Region began in
the late 18th and early 19th centuries, initially
commissioned by adjacent powers such as the Habsburg and the
Russian empires, this terra incognita was not yet
considered part of Europe. The eighteen chapters of this
volume show a broad range of thematic foci and theoretical
approaches – the result of the enormous richness of the
European macrocosm and the BSR. The microcosms of the many
different case studies under scrutiny, however, demonstrate
the historical dimension of exchange between the allegedly
opposite poles of `East‘ and `West‘ and underscore the
importance of mutual influences in the development of Europe
and the BSR.
