Greenland's Inuit have for generations depended upon the hunting and sharing of whales to fulfill their needs. Yet their ability to continue their tradition in an ecologically responsible and sustainable manner is threatened by those opposed to the killing of whales. Contributions deal with various aspects of the whale hunt and the economic, social, cultural, historical, nutritional, and spiritual importance and significance of whales and whaling to Greenlandic Inuit. Chapters by: Moses Olsen; R. Petersen, E. Lemke, And F. O. Kapel; P. Hems, O. Hertz, and F. O. Kapel; Robert Petersen; Fin B. Larsen; Janne Jervin, Jens Dahl, Peder Helms, and Robert Petersen; Svend E. Larsen and Klaus G. Hansen; Erling Josefsen; Richard A. Caulfield;
