Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A social and economic history of whaling in America traces Captain John Smith's ill-fated expedition to the New World in 1614, through the industry's rise to its nineteenth-century golden years, to its decline in the twentieth century.


Review:

"In clumsy but engaging prose, Mr. Dolin offers a colorful, fast-moving panorama....[R]eading LEVIATHAN we get lively impressions of a world that modern Americans will never see in person.....[P]erfect summer reading."

Adam Kirsch, New York Sun, 06/27/2007

Review:

"in...LEVIATHAN, Eric Jay Dolin offers a pleasantly anecdotal history of American whaling so comprehensive that he seems to have harpooned at least one fact from every cetacean text ever printed. LEVIATHAN is a gentle book about a brutal industry."

Caleb Crain, New Yorker, 07/23/2007
