Summary
From Library Journal: At first glance, this book might seem like an effort to capitalize on fairly shallow sensationalism, i.e., the tragic sinking of the Titanic, the "largest moving man-made object the world had ever seen." However, the 100-plus fascinating images and the narrative's careful focus soon dispel that fear. Green presents the intricate details of the design and construction of the ship-from hull dimensions to Grand Staircase-with four double-page diagrams of decks and boiler room plans. He also devotes attention to the administrative and financial forces behind the ship's construction, as well as to its Belfast shipyard workforce. Especially worthwhile is the knowledgeable discussion of the contemporary social and political milieu that seemed to seize upon the concept of the Titanic as a "sorely needed symbol of hope." The only flaw is the lack of a bibliography, which limits the usefulness of this otherwise excellent contribution to the subject and the period
