Down with the Old Canoe: A Cultural History of the Titanic Disaster
by Steven Biel
Everyone found moral and cultural lessons in the sinking of the Titanic -- suffragists and their opponents; radicals, reformers, and capitalists; critics of technology and modern life; racists and xenophobes and champions of racial and ethnic equality; editorial writers and folk singers, preachers and poets. Like today's sensational news stories, symbolizing very different things to different people, the Titanic has become an emblematic tale -- one that continues its grip on the public imagination to this day.
