On the intellectual roots of critical accounting: A personal appreciation of Tony Lowe (1928–2014)
David J. Cooper
CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES ON ACCOUNTING, 2014, vol. 25, issue 4, 287-292
Tony Lowe's publications are important contributions to the intellectual beginnings of critical accounting and a fitting memorial to his recent death. This, perhaps idiosyncratic, appreciation of these publications starts by discussing Tony's conceptualization of management control as a system, his experience in conducting empirical research in management control, his commitment to the practice of being an engaged and progressive academic, and finally his work with others on regulation.
