Harpoon: Into the Heart of Whaling, has just been published in the
United States and Canada by Da Capo Press.
Using key species of whales as allegories, Harpoon is a chronicle
designed to make sense of the whaling issue to both scientist and lay
reader. Rights, Blues, Sperm, Minkes and Humpbacks are examined in
detail, and there are detours into Fins, Orcas and Grays.
Harpoon has a great deal of new inside information on the struggle
for whales, and focusses particularly on the current dispute over
Japanese scientific whaling.
A review of the book appears in The Economist magazine this month.
