Dear Colleagues,

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.

With thanks,
