Host to more than 30 million visitors a year, Las Vegas reigns as the premier gaming Mecca. This historical account of the evolution of the city discusses its legends - Elvis, Liberace, the Rat Pack and the Mob. The authors also introduce the reader to the often-overlooked cultural side of Las Vegas and the entrepreneurs of the "satellites", Laughlin, Primm and Mesquite.
