Gambling and the Public Interest

Synopsis

"No longer confined to Nevada and Atlantic City, gambling is emerging with astonishing pervasiveness, from the new Native American casinos to state-run lotteries to the Internet. Collins argues that a moral case for banning gambling is untenable in a society committed to liberal democratic values. Instead he sees a role for furthering public policy goals and mitigating the ill effects of gambling on communities - and on the gamblers themselves."
