By Robin Roslender
Within accountancy in the last few years there have been moves to take on board a wide range of issues relevant to the profession. These include in particular questions of social and behavioural science in relation to management, and to a lesser extent financial accounting. Robin Roslender's text is the first to draw on developments within the academic discipline and apply their findings in an accessible way for the accounting student. He uses the sociological perspective to analyse the structure and processes of accountancy in an entirely novel way. His book will provide material that is now recognised as being acutely necessary by all parties to accounting education.
