The Rescue of the Third Class on the Titanic

A Revisionist History

David Gleicher

Liverpool University Press

Research in Maritime History LUP

  • This work seeks to understand why a disproportionately large number of third class passengers, particularly women and children, died during the sinking of the Titanic in relation to the first and second classes
  • It examines the gender, class, social, and cultural factors that influenced this disparity
  • A key area of focus is the difficult relationship between the ship's authorities and the men of the third class, and the extent to which this determined the fate of passengers during the rescue efforts
