About this title


A painstakingly researched book by leading British journalist Michael Davie,a reporter and columnist for the London "Observer" and author of books about LBJ and California as well as editor of the diaries of Evelyn Waugh. What Davie does so well is put everything in historical and political context from the first idea to build the Titanic to the discovery and exploration of the ship. This book published in hardcover and paperback was extremely well-reviewed when published because it was unique & extremely well researched. "Titanic does justice at last not only to the central drama of the sinking, but to the many dramas that surround it. He has penetrated more deeply than anyone before him this complicated controversial saga into the disputes and legends with which it is encrusted". Illustrated with sixteen black and white photos.
