Always Low Prices?

Wal-Mart's effects on U.S. and world economy, as well as on the shopping habits of U.S. and world citizens, have not gone unnoticed--certainly not by the authors and editors of these new books now in the Loudoun library:

Wal-Mart: The Face of 21st Century Capitalism
Ed. by Nelson Lichtenstein
HF5429.215.U6 W35 2006

The Wal-Mart Effect: How the World's Most Powerful Company Really Works--And How It's Transforming the American Economy

by Charles Fishman
HF5429.215.U6 F56 2006

The Taking Sides series of books is especially popular with students writing argumentative research papers. The Economic Issues volume of this series contains a chapter on Wal-Mart: "Is Wal-Mart Good for the Economy?"

Taking Sides: Clashing Views on Economic Issues
Ed. by Frank J. Bonello
HC106.7 .T35 2006

New books can be found on display on the first floor of the library or shelved in the stacks on the second floor of the library, arranged by call number. Check with a member of the library staff if you have trouble finding a book.

To find more books on this topic available in the library--and there are more!--try a search for Wal-Mart in the library catalog.
