Summary/Abstract: The article of Ognyan Minchev consists in an objective and well-documented analysis of the interests, strategies and security issues from the Black Sea area. Caught in a major process of transformation, the Black Sea area is still a heterogeneous space, dominated by divergent interests and historical rivalries. The realities within this area are only apparently similar, which creates the need for a specific approach in each particular case. Beyond the almost exhaustive presentation of the Black Sea area security environment, Ognyan Minchev creates several future scenarios starting from the present trends. The conclusion is that the issue of the Black Sea area does not represent a priority on the Euro-Atlantic agenda and that the West will soon need a clearer vision if it wants to regain initiative in this part of the world.
