This first volume in the series provides a thorough overview of recent developments in the area of international accounting, and serves as an essential introduction to the series.

The collection looks at introductory issues, including a selection of papers on the classification of accounting systems. It also examines the measurement and the effects of international accounting diversity.

This collection will be an essential resource to students and researchers alike.
‘The Library, of which this volume forms part, is in my opinion an essential resource for researchers and university libraries. It provides postgraduate students, doctoral students, accounting researchers and academics with representative papers regarding the development of international accounting research during the last 10 years. . . In my view this is the first in a series of books, which will prove to be a fundamental work of reference for international accounting and essential reading for all interested parties.’
