The Times: "Splendid as the Titanic was during its brief life as a transatlantic liner, it was in death that it really came into its own. As the editors of The Titanic in Myth and Memory observe: 'The Titanic has become a monumental icon of the 20th Century, and perhaps more generally of the aspirations and anxieties of modernity.' " FILM Magazine: "meticulously researched" "engrossing reading" "The film fan has been waiting a long time for this book, but tread carefully, as it can have quite an insidious impact on a working day!"
