April 15, 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, arguably the 20th century’s most famous peacetime sea disaster. Titanic at 100 commemorates the anniversary by bringing together news stories, opinions, tributes, survivor accounts, and more, giving a glimpse into the aftermath of the loss of the “unsinkable” ship. Included are original articles from The New York Times, widely regarded as the first newspaper to correctly report the severity of the disaster, spanning the period from Titanic’s launch to the days immediately following the catastrophe; comments and criticism about Titanic from noted literary figures of the day, including George Bernard Shaw, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and H. G. Wells; poetic tributes released in the weeks following the sinking; and two full accounts of that harrowing night penned by survivors Lawrence Beesley and Col. Archibald Gracie. Also included are three fictional works many feel predicted the Titanic’s untimely end: two stories written by Titanic passenger W. T. Stead, who went down with the ship, and Morgan Robertson’s complete Futility, Or The Wreck of the Titan, published in 1898. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

The Titanic For Dummies paints the whole picture of the most famous maritime disaster. It examines the building of the ship, life onboard during its maiden voyage, tragic decisions made that fateful night, the discovery of the wreck, and the many controversies that have emerged in the century since the sinking. Information includes: Theories behind the reason for the sinking (does the blame lie with the watertight doors, bad rivets, or crew negligence?), and when and where the ship split in two. A detailed look at how the lack of lifeboats — and the chaos that resulted in lifeboats launching before they reached capacity — resulted in lives lost. A Titanic “Who’s Who” identifying notable passengers, including those who were famous before the tragedy and those who gained fame because of it. Current thinking about reports of shots being fired onboard, the details of Captain Smith’s death, Murdoch’s possible suicide, and the band’s last song. Findings from the Titanic hearings on both sides of the Atlantic. A recounting of Robert Ballard’s discovery of the wreck in 1985 and the ongoing debate over whether to salvage the wreck or let the ship remain as a memorial to those who perished. A glimpse of the most fascinating artifacts salvaged from the wreckage. The Titanic in pop culture: from Broadway to one of the most highest grossing movies in history (being re-released in 3D in 2012 to commemorate the 100th anniversary).
