"In Scientific Uncertainty and the Politics of Whaling, Michael Heazle undertakes a detailed historical review of the use of science and politics in shaping the policies of the International Whaling Commission (IWC)…. This volume provides an insightful look at the intrinsic links between science and policy, reminding the reader that science does not provide objective truths for decision-makers to translate into scientifically correct policies."
