A few years ago, Geoff Schumacher published a contemporary history of Las Vegas - "Sun, Sin and Suburbia." The key theme of the book was the two or three decades of booming growth. Now, that boom has to be looked at in a very different light after four years of prolonged recession. Schumacher has revised the book and he will be in town this weekend to launch the new edition. He joins us to talk about how the recession has changed his thinking.
