Description - Leviathan by Eric Jay Dolin

"The best history of American whaling to come along in a generation."
-Nathaniel Philbrick
This "engrossing account ... at once grand and quirky, entertaining and informative" (Publishers Weekly) delivers the fascinating 300-year history of American whaling, integrating literary, social, and economic history into an epic account of this once-vital industry.
"Mr. Dolin handles this long, complex tale with great skill, both as a historian and as a writer."
-John Steele Gordon, Wall Street Journal
"[A] richly detailed history of industrial American whaling.... Dolin succeeds admirably."
-Bruce Barcott, New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice
