"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)
