The Casino and Society in Britain
139,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book constitutes a social history of casino style gaming in the United Kingdom and how it has been shaped by regulation or a lack of regulation since the 1914. In particular, it focuses on the development and regulation of gaming clubs or casinos between 1960 and 2007. The study fills a gap in historical inquiry while drawing on some primary source material that has not been used previously, notably the records of the Gaming Board, Home Office and the Metropolitan Police supplemented by oral testimony.

Gambling, Work and Leisure (Routledge Revivals)

Since the legalisation of off-course cash betting in 1960, and the rise of varying forms of gambling, the British have come to be known as a nation of gamblers. Until this study was published in 1976, barely any evidence existed against which to assess the claim that gambling had become a major social problem. The authors present data drawn from area surveys carried out in Swansea, Sheffield, Wanstead and Woodford, and explore how well previous sociological theories of gambling agree with their findings, particular in connection with certain aspects of work and leisure. Examining different forms of gambling, including betting, bingo and gaming machines, the chapters consider how gambling choices vary between different social groups, and how much time and money is spent on them. With the internet making it easier than ever before to place bets, this title is especially relevant, and provides a systematic basis for an explanation of gambling in relation to social structure.
