In this centennial edition of the definitive book on the Titanic, new findings and interviews shed light on the world's most famous marine disaster for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's sinking.On that fatal night in 1912 the world's largest moving object disappeared beneath the waters of the North Atlantic in less than three hours. Why was the ship sailing through waters well known to be a "mass of floating ice"? Why were there too few lifeboats? Why were a third of the survivors crew members? Based on the sensational evidence of the U.S. Senate hearings, eyewitness accounts, and the results of the 1985 Woods Hole expedition that photographed the ship, this electrifying account vividly re-creates the vessel's last desperate hours afloat and fully addresses the questions that have continued to haunt the tragedy of the Titanic.

This is mainly the story of the US investigation into the sinking of the Titanic by US Sen. William Alden Smith. The author tells more about the impact of Titanic on society, and how Titanic reflects the faith of society and technology and it's romantic notions of progress in the gilded age. Titanic is seen as a Greek tragedy pointing out the inevitable failure of hubris. I felt like I was taken back to the heart and soul of America at the turn of the 20th century , and delighted to find a champion of truth and justice for the little people in the form of Sen. William Alden Smith.
