This publication is devoted to the natural feature - the Black Sea and its littoral states. At the same time the Azov Sea is also considered here. This region is the focus of many geopolitical, economic, social and environmental issues that involve not only the countries coming out to the Black and Azov Seas, but other world countries, too.

This publication contains over 1500 articles and terms providing descriptions of geographical and oceanographic features, cities, ports, transport routes, marine biological resources, international treaties, national and international programs, research institutions, historical and archaeological monuments, activities of prominent scientists, researchers, travelers, military commanders, etc. who had relation to the Black Sea.

It includes a multi-century chronology of the events that became the outstanding milestones in the history of development of the Black Sea - Azov Sea region.

"I do recommend this work very strongly - it presents a vast amount of factual information on a region and on every aspect of topics within that region, which is not available elsewhere without a huge amount of time-consuming research. It is a remarkably comprehensive, accurate and convenient source, useful to both specialist and general readers across a wide range of subjects, and thereby, relevant to a very wide range of library collections." (Stuart James, Reference Reviews, Vol. 30 (6), 2016)

"This volume contains over 1,500 alphabetically organized entries written by a team of Russian academics, which range in length from a paragraph to several pages and cover a wide selection of people, places, historical events, concepts, and geographic terms concerning the Black Sea region. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students and above; professionals/practitioners." (D. Durant, Choice, Vol. 52 (8), April, 2015)
