Your research question is:

What are the social benefits and liabilities for tribes developing casinos on Indian reservations?

Which of these sources would likely be more current for your topic.

  • a book published in 1998 about gaming on American Indian lands
  • Pechanga.net, Indian gaming news on the Internet

A book published in 1998 will not be as current as most Web sites, although it may provide good background information. Internet resources like Pechanga.net are generally more current than books; a Web site should indicate the date it was last updated.
