Title: Book review: Unveiling the Whale: Discourses on Whales and Whaling

Author: Schelhas, John;

Date: 2012

Source: Society & Natural Resources 0:1-3

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Whaling represents one of the most internationally controversial and highly polarized environmental issues of recent times. Arne Kalland, in Unveiling the Whale: Discourses on Whales and Whaling, examines the whaling issue from the perspective of a pro-whaling country with an emphasis on analysis of discourse in international arenas, primarily the International Whaling Commission (IWC). The excellent and fine-grained analysis focuses on the ways that different groups think and communicate about whales and the processes that have led to extreme polarization in international whale conservation.
