While Las Vegas has been the fastest-growing place in America since World War II, nothing before compared with the explosive growth of the 1990s. With 6,000 people rushing into the valley each month, Las Vegas responded to the influx with enthusiasm and a can-do attitude, all the while coping with enormous economic, social and political challenges. This carefully documented history covers megaresorts, city myths and the visionaries who kept Vegas one step ahead of itself in the 90s. Indexed 341 Pgs. Revised and expanded 2012 edition.
