Cultures of Casino Gaming (Answering Universal Desires)


Product Description

This volume is a compendium of many of William Thompson’s writings on casino gaming over the past thirty years. It offers selections featuring major players and categories of players starting with his own experience as a nine year old child at a carnival on the playground of Eberbach Elementary School in Ann Arbor, Michigan, followed by essays on critical issues such as the politics of casino legalization, the economics of gaming, and dealing with troubled gamblers.

The book concludes with fifty-four essays on casino jurisdictions and specific casino properties, with most of the information coming from Thompson’s personal visits to casinos on five continents.

The book represents the basic research undertaken during the latter half of the writer’s career in academic life, which began with graduate degrees from Michigan State University and the University of Missouri, and continued with teaching assignments at Southeast Missouri State, Western Michigan University, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and a visiting professorship at Macau Polytechnic Institute.
