New WCW Publication - available now.

Whaling for Food, a publication of the World Council of Whalers, provides 
some answers to the question "Why do some people continue to eat whales 
(when most of us do not)?"  As the book notes, "for some people, whales are 
no longer a necessary food source, yet for some others, whales continue to 
be their nutritionally-best source of healthy food and to expect them to 
give up this cherished food (when there are no objective reasons for doing 
so) makes no sense whatsoever."
Essays in this book provide information on some foods enjoyed in countries 
where whale has been a customary food for many generations and continues to 
be cherished by members of those societies to this day. Whaling for Food 
also contains numerous recipes and photos that illustrate the importance of 
whales as an essential part of some peoples' distinctive food culture and 
ethnic identity.
