The authors note in the preface that “The law and policy of Indian gaming are perhaps the most complicated and politically fraught of any area of tribal- state-federal relations today.” The authors seek to provide an interdisciplinary explanation of the legal, regulatory, political and policy issues that Indian gaming encompasses. The major federal laws and regulations are discussed and appendices include information on gaming in each state.
