DESCRIPTION “The Black Sea” is a historical novel by the Scottish writer Neal Ascherson and a winner of the Saltire Award for Literature in 1995 and the Los Angeles Times Book Award for History in 1996. It’s subject is the Black Sea, a marginal sea of the Atlantic Ocean between Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, and Western Asia. In this study of the fateful encounters between Europe and Asia on its shores, Neal Ascherson explores the disputed meaning of community, nationhood, history, and culture in a region famous for its dramatic conflicts. “The Black Sea” is at once a homage to an ocean and its shores and an amazingly readable meditation on Eurasian history from the earliest times to the present.
