Placing the history of accounting in context with other fields of study, the collection gives invaluable insights to subjects such as the rise of capitalism, the control of labour, gender and family relationships, racial exploitation, the functioning of the state and the pursuit of military conflict." "Including chapters on the important role played by accountancy in religious organisations, a review of how accounting is portrayed in fine art and popular culture, and analysis of sharp practice and corporate scandals, The Routledge Companion to Accounting History has a breadth of coverage that is unmatched in this growing area of study. Bringing together the leading writers in the field, this is an essential reference work for any student of accounting, business and management, and history."--Jacket." ;
