Editorial Reviews

Review

Although Selling Hope is a serious work of economic research, the authors bring a lively curiosity and an engaging style of writing to their work...I found Selling Hope to be enlightening, even entertaining at times, and full of good reason for outrage over the lottery. (Jonathan Kirsch Los Angeles Times)

This book had me grinding my teeth, muttering under my breath, underlining like crazy, and littering the margins with exclamation points...Lottery agencies are looking for ever more attractive forms of gambling--like tapping into professional sports. It's not too late to head off such questionable activity...Selling Hope should be required reading for anybody in a position to decide such issues. (Brad Knickerbocker Christian Science Monitor)

Immensely valuable...Scholars and public policy officials and analysts should quickly obtain this book. Even religious leaders should read it. Undoubtedly this landmark work will define the debate in the 1990s over establishing and maintaining lotteries in the United States. (David E. R. Gay Social Science Quarterly)

Whatever the criteria, this is a superb book...it has earned the right to be the basis from which public policy debates on the controversial issues can and should take place. (A. R. Sanderson Choice)
