In 1970 the fourth and final volume of Arne Odd Johnsen and Joh. N. Tønnessens’s Den moderne hvalfangsts historie was published. The work represented a milestone in the writing about the development of the 20th century whaling industry. This paper reviews the literature that has been published in Norway and internationally on the history of modern whaling after Johnsen and Tønnessen, and analyses the focus, trends and direction in the research and writing on whaling history in the period.
