isbn: 9780091941321 is what this (my blog) is based on. The book is a reprint and has an tie in aspect that it does not need. It was another hard to get book which you don’t want to know the details of.
The book details the early beginning of Atlantic city and examines its success from puritan idealists nearby. Like other local seaside resorts it suffered from a decline when tastes and mobility access change.
What is interesting is that while democracy might be perceived to exist in a two party political system it can be subverted to serve a place. It gets interesting when the bible thumper play there morality card, it changed my perception of Woodrow Wilson to a bit of a fool.
Fact is that supply and demand is king and that is what Atlantic city proves being an prime example. As to the religious well morality might be good for them but is not for everybody especially when there workers are not from the same belief.
The book is an insight, not all are bad despite the deals you could argue that the politicians looked after it citizens in an seasonal economy and developed resources. As the author states in the 2000′s visitors make and break an place referring to another gambling town.
Does it spoil the series (my blog) ? No the fact from fiction adds depth, after all with many of the people dead who is to say that we know the complete truth and as Randal Herst (an rupert murdoch type) helped prove that press freedom is a another misplaced ideal perhaps it is best that facts can support a fiction.
