Handbooks of Management Accounting Research
- Christopher S. Chapman, Professor, Imperial College London, UK
- Anthony G. Hopwood, Professor, University of Oxford, UK
- Michael D. Shields, Professor, Michigan State University, East Lansing, USA
The two volumes of the Handbooks of Management Accounting Research identify the enormous scale and scope of management accounting research. Volume one sets the context for both Handbooks, outlining the historical development of management accounting as a discipline and as a practice, and drawing together a series of contributions that analyse the scholarly literature in terms of distinct intellectual and theoretical social science perspectives. Volume two draws together research that has focussed on particular management accounting practice, and synthesises contributions to the literature that have been focussed within particular organisational contexts.
Taken as a whole, the Handbooks of Management Accounting Research aim to provide a uniquely comprehensive and multi-dimensional resource for those interested in scholarly management accounting research.
