Description An epic social history of steamship travel from the nineteenth century to the Lusitania, the Mauretania and the Titanic. The great transatlantic steamships became emblems of an age, of a Victorian audacity of spirit-cathedrals to man's harnessing of new technology. Through the innovations and designs of key engineers and shipping magnates-Samuel Cunard, Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Edward Knights Collins-'the largest movable objects in human history' were created. To the wealthy, steamships represented glamorous travel, but to most they offered cheap passage out of Europe to the New World. At their peak, steamships delivered one million new Americans each year, transforming the world's oceans from barriers into highways. In this fascinating history, Stephen Fox chronicles the tragedies that marked the evolution of the ocean liner, including the 1852 sinking of the Arctic, with the loss of 322 lives, and the early-twentieth-century losses of the Lusitania and the Titanic.
