Whales: Giants of the Seas and Oceans (Discoveries) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Well-written, loaded with information, and with a rich assortment of illustrations, each Discoveries "RM" volume is a look at one facet of art, archaeology, music, history, philosophy, popular culture, science, or nature. These innovatively designed, affordably priced, compact paperbacks bring ideas to life and amplify our understanding of civilization in a new way.

Book News Annotation:

This small (5x7<">) reference, attractively produced on coated stock, was originally published in French as Vie et Morts des Baleines (Gallimard, 2000). The text is thorough and informative and is supported by well chosen color illustrations. Cohat is an anthropologist with specialist knowledge of the fishing communities of northern Europe; Collet is a marine mammal scientist.
