Gambling: Public Policies and the Social Sciences

Edited by William R. Eadington & Judy A. Cornelius

More than any other time in history, commercial gaming has moved into a status of legitimacy in the eyes of the public and the policy makers. The articles in this volume reflect this new status for gambling and the various approaches taken by jurisdictions around the world to address the many issues that arise with the existence of legal and commercial gaming. This volume includes perspectives of gaming and new jurisdictions, planning processes and bidding for casino licenses, Indian gaming, lotteries, economic and social impacts of gaming, and legal and regulatory issues.
