Publisher's Summary

"Las Vegas: An Unconventional History" commemorates the 100th anniversary of Las Vegas with a sweeping look at the city's dramatic past. The program follows a century of Las Vegas' development, from its humble, dusty beginnings as a remote railway station to the fluorescent, 24-hour, corporate-financed destination it is today. Explore Las Vegas' various incarnations during its evolution, including its Depression-era role as the "Gateway to the Hoover Dam" and its mid-century reputation as a gangster-run hideaway known as "Sin City."

Drawing upon compelling interviews with historians, journalists, cultural commentators, as well as rich archival sound, this program evaluates Las Vegas' ongoing role as a barometer of American values.
