With its tremendous population growth, transient lifestyle, and penchant for extravagant behavior, Las Vegas, Nevada is a sociological phenomenon full of mystery and misunderstanding. Las Vegas: Media and Myth explores the ways in which the local media help to weave together the lives of the people who live in this dynamic community. Author Lawrence J. Mullen uses interviews with numerous persons who work in the local media to create a new oral history of Las Vegas and give voice to the city's inhabitants. An examination of the newspaper, television, radio, and political dimensions of Las Vegas gives new perspective to life in this fascinating place.
