The Rise of the Biggest Little City - An Encyclopedic History of Reno Gaming, 1931-1981 by Dwayne Kling

Description: Arranged in encyclopedic form and lavishly illustrated with historic photographs the author records the stories of hundreds of gaming establishments, including the individuals that created them and made Reno a destination.  Reno was the true pioneer of the gambling industry - it was here that big-name entertainment was first offered in a casino setting; that elegant hotel rooms and fine dining were first offered as amenities of the casino experience; that a casino corporation first traded its stock on the New York Stock Exchange; that ethnic minorities first owned and operated casinos, and first integrated them.  Published by University of Nevada Press (1999).  226 pages.
