Routledge Handbook of Internet Gambling
Edited by three academics with great experience in researching Internet gambling.
Online gambling is a rapidly expanding phenomenon which has profound social, psychological, economic, political and policy implications. For a number of years the world of academic literature struggled to keep up, but that has now changed with the publication of the Routledge International Handbook of Internet Gambling.
Its 20 chapters include groundbreaking contributions from some of the world's leading authorities on the commercial, clinical, political and social aspects of online gambling. All in all, this constitutes a single reference volume that will become a key resource for policy makers, commercial providers and other professionals with an interest in Internet gambling.
This 400 page hardcover was edited by three academics with great experience in researching Internet gambling: Robert Williams, a professor who teaches a course on gambling at the University of Lethbridge, Alberta; Robert Wood, an expert on the socio-cultural aspects of gambling from Lethbridge, and Jonathan Parke, a senior lecturer from Salford Business School who specializes on the topics of poker-playing and electronic gaming machines.
