Book Description

This book explores the role of accountants in business and society. The final work of Louis Goldberg, Professor Emeritus at the University of Melbourne, it aims to raise awareness of the existence and importance of fundamental issues that are often ignored or by-passed in contemporary discussion of accounting. The sixteen chapters assess exactly what accountants do in carrying out their work.
This work will make essential reading for scholars or historians of accounting, and will also interest philosophers and practicing accountants.
