The co-authors talked about their first book, Indian Gaming and Tribal Sovereignty: The Casino Compromise, published in 2005 by the University Press of Kansas. They described the laws and politics of Indian gaming, explaining how gaming has become one of the most politically charged recent phenomena with a host of competing legal rights and political interests for tribal, state, and federal governments. They emphasized that tribal sovereignty is key to understanding Indian gaming law and politics and guiding policy reform to balance its economic and social costs and benefits. After their presentation they answered audience members' questions.

Together, Professors Light and Rand founded and are co-directors of the Institute for the Study of Tribal Gaming Law and Policy, a component of the Northern Plains Indian Law Center at the University of North Dakota School of Law. close
