License to Steal: Nevada's Gaming Control System in the Megaresort Age License to Steal: Nevada's Gaming Control System in the Megaresort Age

Gaming in Nevada is more stringently controlled than anywhere else in the United States, and in License to Steal, investigative reporter and editor Jeff Burbank provides a lively and highly readable case history account of some of the most significant and most fascinating cases adjudicated by the Nevada Gaming Control Board and Commission during a pivotal time for the growing gaming industry.

The Roar and the Silence: A History of Virginia City and the Comstock Lode The Roar and the Silence  
by Ronald M. James  
A History of Virginia City and the Comstock Lode - The Roar and the Silence chronicles the area's history from its earliest days through the early twentieth century, when the lode finally gave out and the Comstock sank into silent decay, and up to the present, when Virginia City and its environs found new life, first as a community of bohemians and artists, and more recently as a tourist attraction offering a taste of the frontier experience to visitors from around the world. James's text brings the Comstock to life again in all its complexity and boom-and-bust excitement. This book offers a wealth of new information and insight into the history of one of the Old West's most storied areas. Buy this book now
