Overview

In her brief life the Titanic, at the time of her launch the world’s largest man-made moving object, inspired huge excitement and speculation. Today, 100 years since she sank with the loss of more than 1,500 lives, public interest continues undimmed. This substantial book, long regarded as the definitive book on the subject, has been fully updated in a centenary edition that chronicles the latest chapters in this compelling story.

This new edition includes new information about the crew's forced detention for the U.S. Senate investigation, an entirely new chapter detailing recent Titanic expeditions (both authorized and unauthorized), exploration, legal challenges, the ship's artifacts and their exhibitions, significant new Titanic museums, new appendices, the most complete and accurate Titanic passenger list ever published and more than 100 new photographs.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

An update of the classic reference book first published in 1986, this new edition includes color photographs of the wreck and some pieces salvaged from it, an explanation of the complex legal wrangling over salvage rights, a chapter entitled "Titanic, Today and Tomorrow" with a time line of Titanic-related events since the second edition was published in 1997, and new appendixes. Eaton and Haas also write of their own voyage to the wreck site, an experience of which most Titanic authors cannot boast. The first edition's subtitle was A Chronicle in Words and Pictures and, indeed, the pictures have always been a major strength of the work, showing more images of people and places related to the ship than any other book. VERDICT: A must-have for anyone interested in Titanic; worth updating to this new edition. - Library Journal, March 5, 2012

We're just coming into 2012 and already we have a Titanic book on our desk, but it's only to be expected as we reach the centenary of the 1912 sinking of the most famous passenger liner in history.

But this is no ‘me too' offer: this is the third edition of an already definitive work, newly published with more than 100 new photographs, significant additional text and the most accurate passenger list yet published.If there is one Titanic volume to have, this is it. It's a chunky read and the story and photos are wonderful. We particularly enjoyed the chapter relating to the British investigation that followed the tragedy â?? and it is all here in glorious detail.There will be many programmes this year on Titanic but for the great-grandmother of the days of passenger liners â?? this is the volume to cherish. Old Glory- December 15, 2011

From collectibles to gravestones, concert programmes to views of other ships on the North Atlantic that night, this is the one publication that really does go closest to claiming to have it all. And now one imitates Eaton and Haas and ceases to write to length â?? the cognoscenti know the worth of T&T already, and it is weighed in the troy ounce. A triumph indeed in this expanded third edition. If ever shipwrecked, yet allowed by ministering angels of grace to save a single volume for the remaining years marooned upon a desert island, the discerning Titaniac could hardly do better than to ask for this one. Encyclopedia Titanica- December 8, 2011

As we approach the centenary of this dreadful tragedy, a third edition of "Titanic: Triumph and Tragedy" by the above authors has been published. Their work has long been regarded as one of the most detailed and authoritative books on the loss of White Star's Titanic. This is a beautifully produced book, lavishly illustrated, and fully updated to include dives to the wreck, dramatic courtroom conflicts and highly evocative new photographs. This would be an excellent addition to any maritime library. Highly recommended. Sea Breezes
