Summary Unregulated commercial whaling has had a major impact on the world's whale populations. In spite of a complete commercial whaling ban imposed by the International Whaling Commission in 1986, whales are still being killed on a daily basis. This book examines Australia's prominent role in trying to secure a compromise from the whaling nations, especially Japan, with whom diplomatic relations have become strained
