`Professors Parker and Yamey, in an extensive work, provide us with fascinating contributions to accounting scholarship ... The collection, as entertaining as it is relevant to our present time of rapid accounting change, is highly recommended ... The book invites the attention of allaccounting historians and wishes we would value each others' contributions. It is a fine invitation; we should not hesitate to accept ... Here is a history of many of the frequent small developments of accounting techniques, by authors too often unknown, which provide our profession benchmarks ofprogress, feathers on our arrow of time. The case for historical perspective is never better made than in this book.'The Accounting Historians Journal
