Sports Betting and Bookmaking: An American History by Arne K. Lang

This book provides a sweeping overview of legal and illegal sports and race betting in the United States, from the first thoroughbred meet at Saratoga in 1863 through the modern day. The cultural war between bookmakers and their adversaries is a recurring theme, as bookmakers were often forced into the shadows during times of social reform, only to bloom anew when the time was ripe. This informative and engaging book is the first comprehensive exploration of the evolution of bookmaking, including the legal developments and technological advancements that have taken place over the years.
