This timely new collection presents the most significant English language contributions to the literature on Islamic accounting. Including more than thirty articles by some of the most important authors in the area, the book covers six major themes: the conceptual framework, accounting ethics and social responsibility, corporate reporting, accounting practice and zakat, auditing and the Islamic history of accounting.

Following the rapid growth of the Islamic financial system this book will be recommended reading for academics, students, researchers and practitioners interested in developing their understanding of this increasingly important area, and an essential purchase for libraries.
