Description
A century after the most famous shipwreck in history, mysteries, controversies, and arguments still surround the tragedy. "The Rough Guide to the Titanic" tells the full, compelling story of the supposedly unsinkable liner. At its heart lies the epic human drama of the "Titanic"'s final hours, between striking the iceberg and disappearing beneath the freezing Atlantic waters.

The book reveals the rich cast of characters: the heroes, villains, and victims aboard the "Titanic," and the underwater adventurers who rediscovered it in 1985. It looks at to the stories of those people who, with their faith in progress and technology, built the "Titanic," as well as to the disaster's aftermath. It covers all the conspiracy theories that have raged since the ship's sinking, and examines how the various books, music, and movies have kept its memory alive.

Those hungry for the real story of this spectacular tragedy following the release of James Cameron's all-time blockbuster "Titanic" in 3-D will find this a complete and satisfying portrait of the "Titanic" and its incredible hold on the popular imagination.
