This book examines the legal and economic policy environment of legalized casino gambling in the United States. After opening chapters charting the historical roots and recent growth of commercial and tribal casino gambling, the authors offer a critical analysis of economic benefits claimed by casino advocates and discuss the social costs associated with problem gambling. They then get to the heart of their text, analyzing the regulatory contexts of casino gambling in Nevada and other states, the federal government's role in casino regulation, and regulation of gambling on the Internet and in tribal operations. They conclude with an examination of the liability issues affecting the future of the gaming industry. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
