It covers the law, policy, science and philosophy at the heart of each element of the debate, discussing how it has developed, the current problems that beset it and what is necessary for the future. Together, all of the issues involved in whaling form a single crucible through which the future of conservation in international environmental law is being debated.q qStudents of law, politics, environmental economics and philosophy will find this book of great value for its cutting-edge relevance over the three disciplines.
