The importance and influence of accountancy have increased incredibly rapidly in the post-war period, although it remains an institution about which relatively little is known. Studies which incorporate insights from social and behavioural science are long overdue. The value of such analyses have been increasingly recognized within the accountancy profession in recent years as a compelling, provocative and fruitful complement to the conventional education and training process. "Sociological Perspectives on Modern Accountancy" is the first book to draw on developments in academic sociology and apply them in an accessible way for the accounting student. Written by a sociologist who is also a trained accountant, this book analyzes the structure and processes of accountancy in a entirely novel way. He considers the profession, its work roles and employment experiences, and the ideological nature of accountancy. This book should be of interest to undergraduates and postgraduates in sociology and accountancy.
