Resort City in the Sunbelt - Las Vegas 1930-2000 by Egene Moehring.
Author Eugene Moehring's lively account, brilliantly updated in this new edition, sheds light not only on the history of the city but also provides insight to its future.
In this new edition of Resort City in the Sunbelt, Moehring discusses how tourism and the spectacular expansion of the Strip continue to spur growth and dominate the casino market. He also addresses the downside of that growth: increased crime, traffic headaches, overcrowded schools, and underfunded social services.
