520    Walmart and "Made in China" are practically synonymous; 
       Walmart imports some 70 percent of its merchandise from 
       China. Walmart is now also rapidly becoming a major retail
       presence there, with close to two hundred Walmarts in more
       than a hundred Chinese cities. What happens when the 
       world's biggest retailer and the world's biggest country 
       do business with each other? In this book, a group of 
       thirteen experts from several disciplines examine the 
       symbiotic but strained relationship between these giants. 
       The book shows how Walmart began cutting costs by 
       bypassing its American suppliers and sourcing directly 
       from Asia and how Walmart's sheer size has trumped all 
       other multinationals in squeezing procurement prices and, 
       as a by-product, driving down Chinese workers' wages.China
       is also an inviting frontier for Walmart's global 
       superstore expansion. As China's middle class grows, the 
       chain's Western image and affordable goods have become 
       popular. Walmart's Arkansas headquarters exports to the 
       Chinese stores a unique corporate culture and management 
       ideology, which oddly enough are reminiscent of Mao-era 
       Chinese techniques for promoting loyalty. Three chapters 
       separately detail the lives of a Walmart store manager, a 
       lower-level store supervisor, and a cashier. Another 
       chapter focuses on employees' wages, "voluntary" overtime,
       and the stores' strict labor discipline. In 2006, the 
       official Chinese trade union targeted Walmart, which is 
       antilabor in its home country, and succeeded in setting up
       union branches in all the stores. Walmart in China reveals
       the surprising outcome.Contributors: Diana Beaumont,
