Accounting Research And The Public Interest

This e-book seeks to promote not just accounting in the public interest, but accounting(s) that are in the public interest(s). The included studies encourage us to reconsider some of our previously held preconceptions of how accounting impacts public interests. They also challenge us to explore how various public interests impact various aspects of accounting. Through a consideration of the intersection of accounting and the public interest in a variety of settings, these studies remind us of the multi-faceted nature of the nexus between accounting technologies, policies, practices, and society.
