An Unsafe Bet? The Dangerous Rise of Gambling and the Debate We Should Be Having reveals how gambling represents a danger to public health due to its inherent addiction potential, which is being intentionally downplayed by the gambling industry and governments.Â
  • Lays bare the extent of gambling and its effects on society
  • Exposes the dilemma for policy makers, who are charged with protecting public health but also increasingly dependent on revenues earned from gambling
  • Written by Jim Orford, an internationally respected authority on the topic
  • International examples broaden the argument and reveal the global stakes involved
