Toxic Masculinity, Casino Capitalism, and America's Favorite Card Game : The Poker Mindset, Paperback / softback Book

Toxic Masculinity, Casino Capitalism, and America's Favorite Card Game : The Poker Mindset Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Poker is a centuries-old American game. Why has it become so popular in the twenty-first century?

What does current interest in the game tell us about ourselves and some of our most pressing social issues?

In this timely and thought-provoking book, Andrew Manno offers important insights into the intersection of gaming, gender, and capitalism that illuminate how the shift to a casino capitalist economy-combined with a culture of toxic masculinity-impacts workers and how it has led to the rise of populism in the United States that manifested in the 2016 election of Donald Trump.
