Description: This book provides an historical account of the sunbelt city phenomenon. It reviews the boom and bust pattern of development, the tourism, the increasing importance of themed mega-resorts and fantasy vacations, gambling as a source of municipal revenue, demographic and social changes, a rapidly growing metropolitan environment, social problems, and family life in the shadow of a gambling mecca.

Las Vegas, Nevada is perhaps the most fascinating city, in the world to study for the practicing urbanist or sociologist. In the past 20 years, while most small- to medium-sized American cities went into decline, the population of Las Vegas doubled in size to over one million residents. It receives thirty million visitors annually and tourism brought $20.7 billion dollars to the city, in 1995.

This fascinating book provides an insightful look at the uniqueness of the Las Vegas experience and what can be learned from this city, in the desert.
