"Marine Mammals and Northern Cultures by Arne Kalland and Frank Sejersen explores recent shifts in national and international environmental policy that has become strongly informed by environmental groups which have reclassified whales and seals from a source of sustainable resources to a form of global patrimony that should not be hunted under any conditions…. The book's strongest argument is the challenge to the reclassification of 'management goals' from a question of defining sustainable numbers to one of moral rectitude…. The book overall is clearly written, carefully researched, full of new information and stimulating. I enjoyed reading it."
