An irreverent, hard-hitting examination of the world's largest - and most reviled - corporation, which reveals that while Wal-Mart's

jobs, it may also be breeding a culture of discontent. It employs
one of every 115 American workers. If it were a nation-state, it
would be one of the world's top twenty economies. With yearly sales
of nearly $260 billion and an average wage of $8 an hour, Wal-Mart
represents an unprecedented, and perhaps unstoppable, force in
capitalism. And there have been few corporations that have evoked
the same levels of reverence and ire.
