This book, first published in 1988, is a valuable digest of the contributions to periodical literature in accountancy by four major contributors of the twentieth century. The four authors represent a total of over two hundred years of experience and leadership in the accounting profession. In many respects this book can be described as a history of accounting thought since 1900, and the particular manner in which each author has contributed to the development of the profession is detailed in the biography preceding each section.
