The Routledge Companion to Auditing by David (University of Auckland, New Zealand) Hay


The Routledge Companion to Auditing by David (University of Auckland, New Zealand) Hay

Auditing has been a subject of some controversy, and there have been repeated attempts at reforming its practice globally. This comprehensive companion surveys the state of the discipline, including emerging and cutting-edge trends. It covers the most important and controversial issues, including auditing ethics, auditor independence, social and environmental accounting as well as the future of the field. This handbook is vital reading for legislators, regulators, professionals, commentators, students and researchers involved with auditing and accounting. The collection will also prove an ideal starting place for researchers from other fields looking to break into this vital subject.


'This book, written by leading audit researchers, communicates important research findings on a wide range of audit issues and tensions. This book will help the profession, investors, and regulators to better understand the contribution of academic research. Perhaps of more importance, it will create a dialogue to better harness the intellectual capital of the academy as an independent voice within the audit community.' - David Lont, Professor, University of Otago, New Zealand 'The Routledge Companion to Auditing provides a concise and insightful analysis of extant research in auditing. The authors are globally recognized scholars and their insights into the various aspects of the auditing market and the process of auditing will provide professional accountants and accounting researchers a lens to apply and better understand this important research.' - Jeff L. Payne, Professor, University of Kentucky, USA'

I love the newsletter with reviews of all the new books coming out. Can't wait to open it when it arrives in my inbox.

Rachel Aygin

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.

Sian Spinney

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It has enriched my leisure time by introducing me to a world of books which I would not have previously considered.

Val Rowe

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!
