Rothman, chaps. 11-12
Simon, chap. 6
I would like you to combine the Rothman and Simon readings into a single 200-word blog comment instead of two separate 100-word comments. The topic: In Rothman’s chapters, he refers to the “malleability” of Las Vegas. How did this malleability enable Las Vegas to solidify its mass appeal in the 1960s-70s, and what might account for Atlantic City’s greater difficulty in remaking itself, at least prior to the 1976 legalization of Atlantic City gambling?
