'As a leader in the accounting history literature internationally, Professor Fleischman offers the scholarly community a timely insight into the leading edge developments and debates in the field. These three volumes provide an invaluable structure and access to writings that have profoundly shaped the contemporary accounting history discipline'
- Lee D. Parker, Professor, University of Adelaide, Australia and co-editor of the Accounting, Auditing & Accountability Journal
'The last twenty years has seen the study of accounting history energized, advanced, and transformed through the application of a variety of theoretical approaches that have broadened and deepened our understanding of accounting's past. Professor Richard K. Fleischman has been a central figure contributing to the elevation of accounting history's scholarship throughout this period and is admirably placed to compile this timely addition to accounting historiography'
- John R. Edwards, Professor, Cardiff Business School, U.K. and co-editor of Accounting, Business & Financial History
'Accounting history has, in recent years, been in a state of paradigmatic upheaval. Many new perspectives have been infused into a debate about the adequacy of archival and other traditional approaches. The cast of (new) characters includes Marxist, deconstructionist, and Foucauldian perspectives. They are well-represented and carefully aligned, in the proposed volumes. Richard Fleischman, one of the grand masters of the field, has a deft touch as editor, and the class of a distinguished professional historian. This is well in evidence in the selection of material, but, more importantly, in sequencing the argument in a manner that retains the chronology and tension of a good novel'
- Tony M. Tinker, Professor, City University of New York-Baruch College, New York, USA and co-editor of Critical Perspectives on Accounting
In the last twenty years accounting history literature has been enriched by the widened examination of historical events from different paradigmatic perspectives. These debates have typically pitted "traditional" historians against "critical" historians.
The 47 articles in this three volume set delineate the basic tenets of these rival paradigms. They include the work of prominent scholars from both camps .
This set provides an overview of the paradigmatic issues featured in accounting historiography. These debates reach across key managerial and financial accounting topics. The final volume reflects a blurring of the lines of demarcation and a tendency towards consensus and joint venturing.
Richard Fleischman, the editor, has written exensively on the additive and synerergistic value of according respectful consideration to competing world views.

Let Us Have Diversity
"This Eighth Edition of the familiar Baskerville opus is easily the most up-to-date version ever printed. Two new chapters add needed subjects to the past array: "Starting Your Own Business" and " The Digital Age." The latter, discussing downloading, digital hardware, and copyright initiatives, is a welcome relief for those of us attempting to keep up. I've always been a fan of the text since it is the only one that is truly comprehensive in scope. Baskerville covers the waterfront. No other book even attempts to do this."
