A Night to Remember by Walter Lord (Bantam, $13). So much has been written about the Titanic, but the best account is this first one. This early-20th-century story is so powerful and such a necessary reminder about the hubris of believing that advanced technology, in any era, is a substitute for just plain common sense. Interesting tidbit: The New York Times was considered a second-rate newspaper until its coverage of this tragedy at sea.

Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar by Simon Sebag Montefiore (Knopf, $19). A riveting account of the most audacious mass murderer of all time. Stalin was an absolute evil genius and almost beyond human comprehension. Simon Montefiore’s book reads like a fast-paced fiction thriller; unfortunately, it’s all true.
