Making Monte Carlo: A History of Speculation and Spectacle : Monte Carlo has long been known as a dazzling playground for the rich and famous. Less well known are the shrewd and often ruthless strategies that went into creating such a potent symbol of luxury and cosmopolitan glamour. As historian Mark Braude reveals in his entertaining and informative book, the world's first modern casino-resort started as an unlikely prospect - with the legalization of gambling in tiny Monaco in 1855 - and eventually emerged as the most glamorous gambling destination of the Victorian era. With a star-studded cast - featuring Pablo Picasso, Coco Chanel, and the Fitzgeralds - Braude tells the roller-coaster history of how a small, rural town grew into the prosperous resort epicenter of the late nineteenth century and rose again to greatness out of the ashes of WWI.
