This volume consists of fifteen chapters by prominent authorities in the fields of cetacean law, policy, and science. The overarching purpose of the book is to assess the challenges faced by cetacean species in this century, and the role of legal, political, and scientific institutions to meet these challenges. The book also contains several chapters that address the abiding ethical questions dividing those who seek to continue to exploit cetaceans as resources and those who maintain that direct exploitation should be permanently banned on the grounds of sentience or intelligence. The emphasis in this book is prescriptive. It seeks to not only outline the critical issues related to cetaceans but also to provide guidance to policymakers in confronting these issues during this century.
