About the Book

This book is a case study of the effects of legalized casino gaming (both Riverboat and Native American) on several communities in the Midwest.  It is based primarily on interviews conducted with local government officials, local business officials, and civic leaders.  Overall, this study determines that gaming has been an economic boon for some communities but an economic bust for others.
