Evans's objective here is to go a step beyond the many recently published whale and dolphin books that have "delighted the eye and fired the imagination." Exploring the subject in greater scientific depth, and including results of current research, he has succeeded in producing an interesting, readable book easily accessible to all whale-and-dolphin fans. Recent research is summarized, with instructive tables illustrating the relationships between findings on such subjects as herd size and sounds produced. There is also a selection of well-chosen color photographs. Original literature is cited in the text and a lengthy bibliography, which includes 1986 references, is provided. Recommended for larger public and academic libraries. Susan Klimley, Columbia Univ. Libs., New York
