Additional Book Details

In the last few decades, Indian gaming has become big business throughout the United States. More than 450 tribal casinos in 29 states generate some $27 billion in gambling revenue each year. The Indian gaming industry continues to grow, attracting widespread attention in the courts, policymaking arenas, and the media. With a complex and controversial federal regulatory scheme and myriad state and tribal regulations, Indian gaming is an increasingly important area of legal and regulatory practice.

Indian Gaming Law and Policy provides a comprehensive yet accessible explanation of Indian gaming. Tracing the genesis of tribal gaming and the federal Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA), enacted on the heels of the Supreme Courts landmark decision in California v. Cabazon Band of Mission Indians, the book describes IGRAs key provisions, major legal and political developments, and the multitude of actorsfederal, state, and tribalwho regulate the industry. As Indian gaming continues to remake the national landscape, this book explores the most importantand fascinatinglegal, political, and policy debates that will determine tribal gamings future. The book includes a unique research guide for students and practitioners interested in learning more about Indian gaming.

Indian Gaming Law and Policy is a highly readable, wide-ranging account appropriate for courses in law, public policy and public administration, business and marketing, or contemporary issues.

The second edition incorporates numerous updates, including the U.S. Supreme Courts decision in Carcieri v. Salazar, the spread of online gaming, the Great Recession, the Obama administrations stance on tribal recognition, land acquisition, and off-reservation casinos, and dynamic tribal-state politics.
