The most dramatic marine disaster of modern times, the RMS Titanic tragedy captured the attention of the entire world. The intensity of interest in the catastrophe has increased, particularly after discovery of the wreck off the coast of Newfoundland in the mid-1980s. The resulting literature is vast, including both scholarly and popular sources. Providing a critical and historiographical overview of that literature, this book offers a useful guide to researchers interested in the Titanic.
