Description
‘The book is like a good box of assorted chocolates – rich, various, full of contrast and surprises, a pleasure from beginning to end! The collection will be useful to both students and academics, consistent with the editors’ aim.’
– Ann Tarca, European Accounting Review

This comprehensive volume presents a selection of country studies on European Accounting published since 1995. It concentrates on financial accounting, but also gives research on management accounting, auditing, professionalisation, history and critical accounting. It sheds light on financial reporting as it is currently practised, as well as on the regulatory framework and the accounting environment. The articles range from descriptions of the development of accounting systems in the transitional economies of Eastern Europe to analyses of theory and practice in Western European countries with a more established research tradition.

Contents
33 articles, dating from 1995 to 2002 Contributors include: A. Ballas, E.R. Barbadillo, J. Blake, C. Boucqueraz, K. Camfferman, M. Granlund, B. Raffournier, W. Seal, T. Schildbach, G. Whittington
