Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Accounting Ethics is a book for our troubled times. The Duskas provide a basic primer on ethics for accounting that is helpful to accountants and non-accountants alike. They deftly weave the saga of Enron and Arthur Andersen through a practical and realistic presentation of accounting ethics."
--Thomas W. Dunfee, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

"This book is a long awaited and significant contribution to business ethics. At last, a book that addresses the full range of accounting, tax, and audit issues, integrating the perspective of the accounting profession with that of a trained ethicist. This is a must-read for everyone in the accounting profession and in business ethics. Bravo Duskas!"
--Patricia H. Werhane, Darden Graduate School, University of Virginia

"Accounting Ethics offers a superb, accessible introduction to the traditions and responsibilities of individual accountants and their firms."
--Carlin Romano, The Philadelphia Inquirer

"... the author's clear, practical, and jargon-free presentation makes this book a valuable resource or nonaccountants and required reading for every accountant and student of accounting."
--Choice, November 2003

"...this textbook is likely to be very useful. It is easy to read, informative and provides a good base for discussion."
--Stuart Turley, University of Manchester

"As a guide to the basic issues and ideas concerning ethics for students with little prior exposure to the debates in accounting and the theories in ethics, this text is likely to be very useful. It is easy to read, informative and provides a good base for discussion."
--European Accounting Review
