Booknews
A non-sensationalistic, scholarly account of the historical development of Las Vegas. While the gaming and resort aspect are fully considered, what distinguishes this treatment of Las Vegas is an emphasis on the city as part of the continually expanding sunbelt. Some of the topics covered are suburbanization, civil rights, energy, industry, retail and residential development, and the infrastructure of roads, sewers and water lines. Annotation c.
