In just over two decades, Indian gaming has become big business throughout the United States. Over 300 tribal casinos in 30 states generate billions of dollars in gambling revenue. 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 a growing area of legal practice.At the intersection of federal Indian law and gambling law, and against the background of tribal sovereignty, Indian gaming is a complicated and fascinating topic for students, practitioners, and policymakers alike, raising important legal, political, and public policy questions. What is the legal basis for Indian gaming? Why have many tribes chosen to open casinos? How is Indian gaming regulated? What developing political and policy issues will determine the future of Indian gaming?Appropriate for students as well as practitioners, this book provides a comprehensive explanation of Indian gaming law and policy, including synopses of key developing issues and a helpful appendix on researching Indian gaming.Steven Andrew Light is the author of 'Indian Gaming Law And Policy', published 2006 under ISBN 9781594600463 and ISBN 1594600465.
