BROWSE - TITLES
In the first four chapters, Hulse evaluates the state’s limited resources, migratory patterns, unstable population, and uneven regional growth from 1940 to 1980. In the last three chapters, he raises thoughtful questions about the state’s key source of revenue, gambling.
The author suggests that the basic criteria to be used in measuring the true value of the institution of gambling are found within its contributions to social legislation, education, artistic endeavor, and cultural progress—in short, to investigate the industry’s stimulation of the whole fabric of community life. But Hulse does more than diagnose the situation—he demands action. In brief, he wants Nevada to prosper, but with culture and morality as major objectives.
