Summary note
"This book explores the recent developments in global and Japanese whaling from the viewpoint of the members of the Japanese whaling community, a perspective which is largely neglected and misinterpreted. Japanese whaling has been one of the most contentious issues in global environmental governance in recent years and Japan is often harshly criticized for its whaling programs. By distinguishing between the different whaling-related actors and their experiences, this book widens our understanding of why whaling programs continue to exist. Rich in ethnographic data, the book includes in-depth interviews with representatives of the Japanese whaling community, from government officials to fishermen, shedding light on what whaling represents, both historically and today. As an ethnographic study of a divisive and controversial subject, this book will appeal to a wide range of students and scholars including, but not limited to, those interested in Japanese studies, anthropology, political science and ocean resource management"-- Provided by publisher.
