Greenlanders, Whales, and Whaling: Sustainability and Self-Determination in the Arctic
by Richard A. Caulfield
Publisher: University Press of New England 1997
Number of pages: 219
Whaling has been central to the life of Greenland's Inuit peoples for at least 4000 years, but political, economic, technological, and regulatory changes have altered this ancient practice. The author reveals these impacts first by analyzing Home Rule and its success in Greenland, and then by looking at whaling's place in the contemporary Greenlandic economy and its evolving co-management regime.
