The book gives examples of the interaction of whales, dolphins, and porpoises with human cultures around the world and discusses such conservation issues as modern whaling, habitat degradation, pollution, and the threat of extinction. Short essays address additional topics such as whale intelligence, the mystery of mass strandings, the lessons of DNA analysis, and the tuna-dolphin controversy.
