Summary

The primary aim of this book is to introduce anthropological concepts and analysis and to demonstrate their value for understanding American culture by applying them to Walmart. This is not a "definitive" book on Walmart, nor does it single the company out for anthropological praise or criticism. Rather, Walmart is analyzed as a set of dilemmas and contradictions that index American culture more generally, and against which alternatives can be both imaged and developed.
