Wake of the Whale by Kenneth Brower

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


For more than ten years, William R. Curtsinger has specialized in photographing marine mammals. No one else in the world has produced a body of work on them anything like it. His photographs are the kind that make you wonder how in the world they were taken. Sidney Holt's introduction, drawn from his decades of experience with the politics and biology of the sea, gives the scientist's view of the so-called rational exploitation of living marine resources, and concludes that "the state of the art of assessing the state of the whale consists of some hard data, soft theory, a little knowledge, and a heap of speculation." Wake Of The Whale has the power, we hope, to prevent a wake for the whale, for other cetaceans, and for their distant relatives, including ourselves.
