Beschreibung

This book celebrates the life and work of Tony Lowe, a pioneer of
critical accounting. The authors elaborate on the fact that Tony Lowe regarded
accounting as a moral and political practice rather than some dry technical
phenomena because it has serious social consequences. The essays in the book
are written by a global community of Tony's former colleagues and students and
show the value of adopting interdisciplinary perspectives. The essays locate
accounting and business practices in wider social, economic and political
contexts to show that Tony's ideas had far reaching applications for
regulation, corporation governance, accounting, auditing, the environment,
corporate social responsibility, organisational accountability, gender, race,
globalization and the functioning of the state. The book is suitable for
undergraduate and postgraduate students, scholars and practitioners seeking to
free themselves from the shackles of conventional views about accounting and
business practices.
