Whitehead, Hal. Gregory Whitehead provided essential input on the first draft. Post Mills, V. Chelsea Green Publishing, 1991.

Whitehead’s and Rendell’s chapter on whale song is key to their provocative, brilliant book. We now know that these songs are evidence of what they term the first non-human cultural revolution. Humpbacks on the east coast of Australia, for instance, learn their song from those on the west coast. Filled with spermaceti oil (early hunters believed to be the animal’s semen, hence its name), it functions as the natural world’s most complex sound generator.

The author recounts his experiences leading a research expedition to study whales in the Indian Ocean, and summarizes his observations of blue and sperm whales
