The International Politics of Whaling

The International Politics of Whaling Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whales: large, mysterious, intelligent, and endangered. Over the years, large-scale commercial whaling has gradually devoured several species, resulting in a global moratorium issued by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) in 1986. Current debate centers on the validity of this ban given strong opposition from whaling communities in Norway and Japan, Iceland's withdrawal from the IWC, and reputed recovery of some whale populations.<P>The International Politics of Whaling is a fascinating study of the politics, environmental dilemmas, and ethical questions surrounding this highly controversial issue. Peter Stoett seeks to clarify the multidimensional nature of whaling as well as its relation to other crucial environmental concerns such as ozone depletion, global warming, and marine pollution. Stoett combines a sensitivity to ecological questions with a hard assessment of the political realities of the international community in order to assess this important issue.

Book News Annotation:

Topics include the ecopolitics and ethics of whaling; the relationship between the whale and the whaler; and the IWC, foreign policies, and NGSs. Appendices include a chronology of whaling; the text of the 1946 International Convention for the Regulation of Whaling; and current aboriginal whaling quotas.
