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.
