Since the late 1980s, legalized gambling has spread from Las Vegas and Atlantic City to Native American reservations to the Internet. This anthology traces the growth of gambling in the United States and explores many of the controversial issues that surround its ubiquity and popularity.
"This thoughtful, lucidly written work presents an evenhanded discussion of five major issues. The best organized introduction for the student needing report or debate material. The abundantly footnoted text quotes many primary sources and draws upon scientific examples to illuminate the questions. Informative...black-and-white photographs accompany the text. The appended list of organizations and the generally current list of books for further reading are both annotated."
