Subtitled "Gaming Research Across the Disciplines". The UNLV Center for Gaming Research's Occasional Paper Series features papers on a variety of topics in gaming history, economics, and operations from scholars and members of the industry. This collection pulls together 17 papers originally published in the series, making them available in one book for the first time. Ranging from the mythologies surrounding notorious gangster Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel to a look at the lessons that the financial crisis (should have) taught Las Vegas casinos to a cross-national examination of how governments spend the money they accrue from gambling proceeds and taxes, this collection draws on several disciplines, including history, sociology, philosophy, public policy, and business. Taken together, these papers provide a snapshot into the diversity of work currently being conducted in a variety of fields with the common focus of gambling, in its many manifestations. 352 Pgs. 2013
