About this book

This illustrated bibliography details almost 400 papers dealing with aspects of whale hunting techniques since man first began to hunt these magnificent marine mammals, ranging from the poisoning techniques used by natives of the Aleutian archipelago up until the mid-19th century, through the techniques used by the 'Yankee' whalers, to experiments with electricity and modern explosive grenades.
