Willie Mackenzie, oceans campaigner for Greenpeace, produces a call to arms to alert the world to the new dangers facing our whales. Written to coincide with this year's International Whaling Committee meeting in Chile, this book covers the history of whaling, the recent renewal in whaling activity, the threats to the different species, and an outline about what the citizen can do to lobby his or her government to finally bring in a world ban on whaling.
