Book Description

This book provides a comprehensive and thought-provoking collection of articles by internationally recognised experts in the study of gambling - doctors and lawyers, journalists and academics. It presents a diverse range of perspectives on the issue of gambling: from legal, political, and economic, to social, psychological, and ethical. Although many of the essays are strongly argued, the collection as a whole offers a balanced range of viewpoints and arguments, allowing readers to decide for themselves what role gambling should play in our society. The stimulating, jargon-free articles in this entertaining and informative volume will help clarify one of the most important debates of our time.
