Handbook of Accounting and Development

Research Handbooks in Business and Management series

Edited by Trevor Hopper, University of Sussex, UK, Mathew Tsamenyi, University of Birmingham, UK, Shahzad Uddin, University of Essex, UK and Danture Wickramasinghe, University of Glasgow, UK

The perspectives of the expert contributors reflect the strong growth of research on the topic, as accounting is increasingly recognised as an important factor in development. The book draws commentary and analyses together to inform future research, practice and policy and raises awareness of the actual and potential role of accounting in formulating and executing development policy.

‘The Handbook of Accounting and Development examines the major areas of accounting and development (financial reporting, management control, taxation, education) in both the public and private sectors. The four editors have written two of the chapters, including the “Introduction” which is more substantial and useful than an average introduction. The remaining 14 chapters are contributed by 22 distinguished authors who work in nine different countries. The quality of the writing is high throughout. The Handbook should be warmly welcomed by policy-makers and academics, especially those of us who have not paid enough attention to such matters in the past.’
– Christopher Nobes, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK

‘Trevor Hopper and his colleagues provide a central point of reference for research into accounting and development. Definitive chapters from internationally recognised authors (including Marcia Annisette, Kerry Jacobs, Chris Poullaos, Brendan O’Dwyer, Chibuike Uche and Jeffrey Unerman) cover the full range of issues from the role of capital markets in development, through accounting professionalization, to taxation and transfer pricing. Contributions from authors working for donors and non-governmental organisations provide a useful practical dimension that builds on the more academic chapters.’
– Christopher Napier, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
