8. Crimea : a history [2016]

Book
224 pages : maps ; 23 cm
In 2016 Crimea shapes the headlines much as it did some 160 years ago, when the Crimean War pitted Britain, France and Turkey against Russia. Yet few books have been published on the history of the peninsula. For many readers, Crimea seems as remote today as it was when colonised by the ancient Greeks. Neil Kent's book recounts the history of the Crimea over three millennia. A crossroads between Europe and Asia, ships sailed to and from Crimean ports, forming a bridge that carried merchandise and transmitted ideas and innovations. Greeks, Scythians, Tartars, Russians, Armenians and Genoese are among those who settled the peninsula since antiquity, a demographic patchwork that reflects its geography. The religious beliefs of its inhabitants are almost as numerous: the Hebraicised beliefs of the Karaim Tartars, Islam, Judaisim, Russian and Greek Orthodoxy, as well as Roman Catholicism. This mosaic is also reflected in places of worship and the palaces which still adorn Crimea: imperial Romanov Massandra, the 'noble nest' of Prince Voronzov at Alupca or the Palace of Bakhchisaray built for the Tartar Khan.For some two centuries balmy Yalta and its environs were a veritable Black Sea Riviera, where Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin met at the end of the Second World War.

"La Crimée, péninsule au sud de l'Ukraine, a eu une longue et riche histoire. Taures et Scythes, Sarmates et Alains, Grecs et Italiens, Turcs, Mongols, Slaves y ont laissé leur marque. De grands États comme le royaume du Bosphore ou le khanat tatar de Crimée s'y sont développés. Position stratégique sur la mer Noire, elle a été le théâtre d'évènements militaires importants, de l'Antiquité à la Seconde Guerre mondiale. A l'occasion du 70e anniversaire de la déportation des Tatars de Crimée par le pouvoir soviétique (1944) et du 60e anniversaire de la cession de la Crimée à l'Ukraine (1954), ce livre retrace l'évolution du pays, de ses populations successives et de leurs cultures. Il explique pourquoi la Crimée, qui forme aujourd'hui une république autonome au sein de l'Ukraine indépendante, est redevenue l'enjeu d'oppositions ethniques et diplomatiques."--P. [4] of cover.
