Publisher Description

The much anticipated fourth edition of Craig Deegans Financial Accounting Theory delivers authoritative and completely up to date material with the discussion of both existing theories and newer theories that have surfaced as financial reporting has become more international. This edition includes a new selection of modern “Accounting Headlines” which provide current examples of organisations and individuals putting accounting theory into practice in both local and global settings. Financial Accounting Theory covers additional topics such as critical perspectives, public sector accounting and fair value. Workflows and processes are presented using enhanced visual charts to help demonstrate how accounting works in practice. Deegan presents the concepts in a clear and straightforward style, while challenging students to think critically about the range of accounting theories. Financial Accounting Theory provides a sound basis for readers contemplating further research and develops habits of analytical reasoning and critical thinking.
