From the cover: “This study of gambling patterns in Britain today was undertaken at a time when the recent more liberal legislation on gambling was apparently leading more people to hazard more money. The claim that excessive profitability prompted infiltration by the organised underworld is a further assumption among many challenged as being largely unfounded. The author goes on to examine the sociological roots and social satisfaction inherent in the activity of gambling.”
