The Titanic Story: Hard Choices Dangerous Decisionsby Stephen Cox
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
The story—now grown into morality tale—everyone knows about the great ship being sunk by arrogance, greed, incompetence, and reckless speed is wrong, says Cox (literature, U. of California-San Diego), or at least debatable. He looks at the decisions and choices made from the building of the ship and its navigation, to the last-minute decision by the captain. He includes quite a bit of eyewitness testimony.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
The tragedy of the Titanic continues to fascinate readers and filmgoers. Author Stephen Cox maintains that the true stories of those onboard are even more compelling than the fictionalized tale told in James Cameron's box-office smash. Cox retells the real story in human terms, by focusing on a few individuals. Through these survivors' firsthand accounts, he uncovers the fatal decisions that underlay the events.
