9780752451763: Titanic: The Myths and Legacy of a Disaster

An exploration of why the legacy of the Titanic persists, in procedures, building regulation, navigational practice, statues, poems, novels, movies, and even a musical April 15, 2012, marks 100 years since the Titanic hit an iceberg and foundered in the North Atlantic with the loss of 1,513 lives. She was certainly not the fastest passenger ship of the time and had the disaster not occurred, she would have lost the title of the largest liner within just two years—yet Titanic captures the imagination like no other. This book seeks to explore the myths and the truth about Titanic as well as the legacy that has made the ship so well known. It discusses such questions as Why was she built? Who really owned her? Why was nobody ever proved negligent? How has today's transportation been made safer by Titanic? and Have we really learned the right lessons?

On 15 April 2012, 100 years will have passed since the Royal Mail Steamer Titanic hit an iceberg and foundered in the North Atlantic with the loss of 1,513 lives. Had the disaster not occurred, what is now the best-known ship in the world would have lost the title of the largest liner within just two years.

Why was nobody ever proved negligent? How has today s transportation been made safer by Titanic? Have we really learned the right lessons? Perhaps not!
