The Politics of Gambling in the South
Michael Nelson and JOHN LYMAN MASON employ case studies of Mississippi and Georgia to explore the recent spread of legalized gambling in the South. Their research affirms the value of the prevailing theories of state policy innovation while suggesting several refinements, particularly in diffusion theory. They also draw attention to the sometimes-neglected importance of state constitutions and electoral politicians in the policy innovation process.
