p>/p> p>   &nbs A visitor to OnlineCasinoGround informed us about Dr. David Schwartz’s recently published book ‘At The Sands.’ We discovered that we had been writing about this famous casino on a regular basis without realizing it. We’ll find out why after reading the book. The Sands’ history is intertwined with numerous significant developments in the casino industry and the United States.

David Schwartz, M.D.

For those who are unfamiliar with the author, let me first introduce him. Dr. David Schwartz is a vice-provost and scientific office manager at the University of Las Vegas. He is best known, however, as the author of the book ‘Roll the Bones.’ That’s a big book on gambling history. He begins at the dawn of our time and concludes with the opening of the Wynn casino in 2005, the year of the book presentation.

Dr. David Schwartz is a graduate historian who is dedicated to the truth. He conducts extensive research for his books. He then weaves the facts into a fascinating story, without boring you with his own life story, as many American writers do.

The Sands is a beautiful time capsule that reflects the extensive research that went into it. Schwartz transforms it into a pleasantly readable story through the use of visual language, dialogue, and excellent characterization of the protagonists. /p> h2> Sands of Time h2> /h2> p> From 1952 to 1996, The Sands was a hotel and casino in Las Vegas. The Sands played an important role in the history of Las Vegas, and possibly the United States, during that time period. Schwartz’s book demonstrates the significance of this casino in shaping the ancient gambling world into the modern form we know today. /p> /p> p> The Sands’ story has changed over the 44 years, with its own adaptations, the business operations of other casinos, and the hospitality industry in surrounding hotels and casinos. After all, many innovations begin in this illustrious company. /p> /p> p> Many people we know in the Netherlands pass by during those ten years. Not because they’re associated with The Sands. In that case, they are influenced or influenced by the hotel and casino. Schwartz puts them in context to clarify their historical significance.

Characters and other people in The Sands

Which characters are we referring to? Initially, mafia figures such as Bugsy Siegel, Meyer Lansky, and Frank Costello were involved. It’s the era of FBI wiretaps, informants, and investigations. Later, as an entertainer, Frank Sinatra visits The Sands. The Rat Pack is formed, with Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. performing. The latter’s presence promotes racial equality not only in Las Vegas, but throughout the United States. /p> /p> p> Other names that come up on OnlineCasinoGround include wealthy industrialist Howard Hughes as one of the owners, William ‘Billy’ Wilkerson, and others. By the way, Sheldon Adelson, about whom we wrote last month, is the subject of a lengthy chapter in the book. He was the man who brought the bulldozers in 1996 to make way for his Venetian dream, effectively putting The Sands to rest. /p> h3> Managers with sway h3> /h3> p> The book examines a wide range of owners and managers. Schwartz goes into great detail about their role and impact on the history of The Sands, Las Vegas, and beyond. Carl Cohen, for example, is one of the casino managers. Schwartz uses an anecdote to demonstrate his influence, as he does with several people.

He claims that a well-known actor from the time appeared in The Sands as a comedian. Carl Cohen eventually asks this man to renew his act. The man does not believe it is necessary. An argument ensues, and the man eventually says, ‘I’m not telling you how to play craps.’ You don’t tell me how to act. ‘Isn’t that what you hired me for?’ ‘I’m a star, I can perform anywhere,’ he says shortly after. /p> /p> p> The comedian is then fired by Cohen. After that, it does not enter any club in the United States. That demonstrates Cohen’s clout, doesn’t it? Finally, somewhere in a small town, the comedian discovers a club where he can perform. The club burns down under suspicious circumstances just before he is scheduled to perform that evening. h2>Influence?/p> A thorough and well-documented book/h2>

All aspects of The Sands’ success and decline are discussed gradually. For example, the public relations machine behind the success, with Schwartz also mentioning the original Ocean’s Eleven film from 1960, starring the Rat Pack and Shirley Maclaine. /p> /p> p> Almost always, for better comprehension, the parts are presented against the backdrop of the entire gambling industry. Beginning with performances by well-known artists during a period of declining revenues, changes in the hospitality industry to create more total entertainment, and Adelson’s all-in-one concept eventually leading resorts. /p> /p> p> There are certain parts of the book that you are particularly interested in. In other words, do you want to continue reading? The book contains 250 notes with source citations.
