This chapter discusses the broad-brush history of human value-based governance with respect to whales and whaling. The human history of relationships with whales is long. This chapter focuses on the principles of human values and behavior that have formed recent laws and policies and reflected the human attitudes toward, and relationships with, whales. It focuses on those attitudes and relationships that have been expressed through law and policy in the United States and the principal international organization involved in this area to which the United States has been a party: the International Whaling Commission.

Keywords:   human value-based governance, International Whaling Commission, whaling, United States, human behavior
