Summary
"The new edition gives close attention to social and political changes that have occurred since the original publication of The Silver State in 1991. Specifically, Hulse discusses the impact of a growing statewide population; new developments within the education system; the expanding roles of women; recent changes and developments in state politics; the exponential growth of Las Vegas; and an assessment of the changes in Nevada's growing ethnic population and increasingly divergent demographic groups. In addition, all of the recommended reading lists have been updated."--BOOK JACKET. "This book will inspire students and general readers to take another look at the rich heritage of Nevada, the Silver State."--BOOK JACKET
