The Sociology of Gambling in China

By TJ Cheng

Professor TJ Cheng's knowledge of Macau, which is the world's gambling capital larger than Las Vegas in absolute money terms, has afforded him to the opportunity to study both the personal and social impact of gambling. This bold and far-sighted work attempts to understand gambling behaviour in a systematic multi-perspective manner. It will appeal to students of China, sociology and gambling as well as policy makers and professionals involved with the gambling industry.
