International accounting; a review of books available to supportUK courses: a teaching note

John Laidler and Simon Pallett

Accounting Education, 1998, vol. 7, issue 1, 75-86

Abstract: This teaching note provides guidance on the choice of textbooks to lecturers new to international accounting (IA) and offering IA modules in UK higher education. This evaluation of 10 books is made in the context of considerations about the nature of IA as an academic discipline. The paper therefore starts with an examination of what IA is and why it is taught, before moving on to an evaluation of the books. Our conclusions are that the books tend to lack clear focus and theoretical rigour, although in doing so they reflect broader problems about how IA is taught.
