Accounting in Networks is the first book that in a comprehensive way covers the emerging issue of accounting and control in horizontal relations across legally independent organizations. During the last 20 years, organisations have shown an increased interest in collaborations that cross company boundaries. New organisational forms, such as alliances, partnerships, joint ventures, outsourcing and networks have received increased attention. This development has pushed management accounting researchers into examining the lateral effects of accounting. This book examines these lateral effects on accounting, and creates a comprehensive summary of what has been achieved so far and what interesting developments will occur in the coming ten years. The book covers a variety of inter-organizational settings – dyads, networks, joint ventures, public sector – and the roles of accounting therein. It also deals with specific inter-organizational accounting techniques – customer accounting, target costing and open book accounting – which companies use to manage in a world of inter-organizational relationships and networks. The book also covers different theoretical perspectives – transactional cost economics, the industrial-network approach, actor-network theory, institutional theory – on accounting in networks. Each chapter focus on a specific angle of accounting in networks, assess theoretical and empirical evidence, summarize the current position/debate and discuss promising avenues for future research.
Utz Schäffer describes all scales, including the psychometric qualities as well as samples which have been used in great detail. Thus, the reader of this book can avoid reinventing the wheel as it will in many cases reduce the need to conceptualize, test, and validate a measure from scratch.
'The Handbook of Accounting and Development examines the major areas of accounting and development (financial reporting, management control, taxation, education) in both the public and private sectors. The four editors have written two of the chapters, including the "Introduction" which is more substantial and useful than an average introduction. The remaining 14 chapters are contributed by 22 distinguished authors who work in nine different countries. The quality of the writing is high throughout. The Handbook should be warmly welcomed by policy-makers and academics, especially those of us who have not paid enough attention to such matters in the past.' – Christopher Nobes, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK 'Trevor Hopper and his colleagues provide a central point of reference for research into accounting and development. Definitive chapters from internationally recognised authors (including Marcia Annisette, Kerry Jacobs, Chris Poullaos, Brendan O'Dwyer, Chibuike Uche and Jeffrey Unerman) cover the full range of issues from the role of capital markets in development, through accounting professionalization, to taxation and transfer pricing. Contributions from authors working for donors and non-governmental organisations provide a useful practical dimension that builds on the more academic chapters.' – Christopher Napier, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK This innovative and informative Handbook brings together leading international researchers on accounting and development to review empirical evidence, issues, policies and practices both past and present. The perspectives of the expert contributors reflect the strong growth of research on the topic, as accounting is increasingly recognised as an important factor in development. The book draws commentary and analyses together to inform future research, practice and policy and raises awareness of the actual and potential role of accounting in formulating and executing development policy. With theoretical and empirically focused chapters, this Handbook will appeal to academics and postgraduate students in accounting and development studies, practitioners, policymakers and development partners.
