This collection of commissioned papers from some of the world's most renowned scholars in accounting celebrates the academic achievements of Professor Bob Parker. Reflecting his multi-faceated contribution to the history of accountancy, the volume studies the development of accounting in an international context. The book has an introduction by the editors. Basil Yamey then analyses the interesting diversity of accounting in Europe from late mediaeval times to 1800. The nineteenth century development of the profession in the UK and Australia is examined by Tom Lee and by Edwards, Carnegie and Cauberg. Lee Parker looks at the topical area of professional conduct. Richard Morris charts the influence of England on Australia in the development of one type of corporate legal form. Bell and Peasnell and Tweedie and Whittington analyse aspects of current value accounting. Steve Zeff adds to his work on political influence on standard setting by looking at a recent US example. Gray and Roberts seek to explain patterns of foreign listing on the London Stock Exchange. Finally Segun Wallace studies the development of accounting research in the UK, with emphasis on the journal edited by Bob Parker for many years.
