Bethlehem PA was synonymous with steel. After the factory closed the city bet its future on a new industry: casino gambling. On the site of the former Bethlehem Steel plant, thousands of flashing slot machines and digital bells replaced the fires in the blast furnaces and the shift change whistles of the industrial workplace. From Steel to Slots tells the story of the ways in which local jobs, landscapes, and identities are transformed by global capitalism.
