STOETT, Peter J. The International Politics of Whaling. Vancouver: UBC Press, (1997). Pp 228. 8vo, illustrated boards. "...a fascinating study of the politics, environmental dilemmas, and ethical questions surrounding this highly controversial practice. 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 warning, and marine pollution. While recognizing the importance of habitat preservation, he challenges thepolitical value of the suspension, arguing that the symbolic importance of both the whale and the moratorium may be overshadowing the need for much m ore in-depth policy work in this area." -from the cover.
