Book Description

This book, first published in 1986, contains a series of articles from The Accountants’ Magazine from the early years of the twentieth century. They provide insights into the development of accountancy as a profession, and the development of the professional bodies that oversaw it. Careful selection of the articles for this volume mean that there are often contrasting pairs of articles on the same subject, providing a neat summation of any debate on the topic.
