American byzantium : photographs of Las Vegas by Virgil Hancock( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Photographer Virgil Hancock documents the many faces of Las Vegas. The color photographs capture the glitzy hotel-palaces, the neon-saturated nights, the decaying buildings that are being torn down, the billboards, and the pop-culture fantasy playground atmosphere that characterizes the city. In addition to Hancock's introductory essay, writer Gregory McNamee relates in words what the photographer narrates visually, exposing a city of opulence, glamour, and fantasy, and poverty, decay, and despair
Neon metropolis : how Las Vegas started the twenty-first century by Hal Rothman( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A haven for refugees from ordinary America, chameleon-like in its ability to adapt to the needs and desires of its constituents, Las Vegas is, as historian Hal Rothman argues, the quintessential city of the future. The first full account of America's fastest-growing city, Neon Metropolis brilliantly shows how Las Vegas gambled on the post-industrial service economy well before the rest of the country knew it was coming, and won.
