"Brimming over with wit and insight…Fresh and fascinating." —Dan Rather Everyone from suffragists to their opponents; radicals, reformers, and capitalists; critics of technology and modern life; racists and xenophobes and champions of racial and ethnic equality; editorial writers and folk singers, preachers and poets found moral and cultural lessons in the sinking of the Titanic. In a new edition that both commemorates the one hundredth anniversary of the disaster and elaborates, in a revised afterword, on the ship's continued impact on the public imagination (evidenced by the Titanic mania evoked by James Cameron's 1997 film), Steven Biel explores the Titanic in all its complexity and contradictions.

It boasted libraries, palm trees, swimming pools, a 50-phone switchboard and was nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower… No, she's not a skyscraper, she's the Titanic! Marking the centenary of the sinking of the White Star Liner RMS Titanic in 1912, 'Titanic, A Very Peculiar History' delves into the human stories of both crew and passengers and the incredible feats of engineering and design involved in the ship's construction.

Featuring letters from the liner's passengers and crew and a taste of the superstitions and creepy coincidences that surround the ship's sinking, it's a great all-round look at the incredible facts and stories at the heart of the Titanic's conception, construction and maiden voyage.

As the original title page proudly proclaims, A Graphic and Thrilling Account of the Sinking of the Greatest Floating Palace Ever Built, Carrying Down to Watery Graves More Than 1,500 Souls; Giving Exciting Escapes from Death and Acts of Heroism Not Equaled in Ancient or Modern times, Told by the Survivors. Indeed, of all the “instant books” published after the sinking of the Titanic, this one best captures the spirit of the times, and of the public reaction to the disaster. Alongside the harrowing accounts of survivors and their testimony before the Senate investigation, there are chapters of newspaper editorials and sermons preached by prominent clergy. Thus we find that even a hundred years ago, opinion columns were despairing of the modern need for speed, and were calling for stern regulation of the new-fangled “Marconigrams” (radio), while churchmen lauded the spirit of “women and children first,” and preached on “How Shall We View God in the Light of Such a Disaster.” The influence of newspapers on public opinion is also shown in the illustrations, which include many editorial cartoons reacting to the disaster. An essential book for studying the historiography of the Titanic.
