Turning on its head history's wrongful association of Titanic to a legacy of farce and failure, this book underlines how safe the ship really was and investigates the era's technology and mindset Delving into the ship's legacy, this history puts forward the refreshing argument that Titanic represented a considerable achievement in maritime architecture. It determines the true causes of the disaster, telling the story of the "unsinkable" ship against a backdrop of a tumultuous and rapidly emerging technological world. It exposes the true interests of the people involved in the operation, regulation, and investigation into Titanic, and lays bare the technology so dramatically destroyed. Juxtaposing the dueling worlds of economics and safety, this study rationalizes the mindset that willfully dispatched the world's largest ship out to sea with a deficient supply of lifeboats. Using original material, it explores not only how the sinking occurred but also examines the significance and allure of Titanic as well as boldly establishing a future for the wreck itself.
