The Third Edition of this successful text includes extensive changes, based on feedback from students and lecturers. There is a discussion of auditing and the law beyond the issue of third-party liability; and more coverage of recent developments in audit methodologies and techniques. New chapters include a survey of developments in audit automation, a discussion of the nature and development of the audit market, both in the United Kingdom and the European Union, and an assessment of the impact on auditing of the Cadbury Report on corporate governance, with particular attention to the role of audit committees. Each chapter includes questions for discussion.

After completing an MA by Thesis at the University of Manchester I trained as a Chartered Accountant with Arthur Andersen in Birmingham. After qualification in 1975 I took up an appointment as Lecturer in Accounting in the Department of Accounting and Finance, University of Manchester.
In 1979-80 I was Visiting Associate Professor of Accounting, Tulane Business School, New Orleans

In 1984 I moved to the University of Essex as Senior Lecturer in Accounting in the Department of Economics and was subsequently promoted to Reader in 1987.

In 1988 I was the founding Head of the Department of Accounting and Financial Management, University of Essex, and was appointed the first Professor in the Department in 1989. Subsequently, I served as Dean of the School Social Sciences (1995-97), Dean of the Graduate School (1997-99), Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Academic Standards (1999-2002), and Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Academic Development (2002-06).

In 2001 I was an Erskine Fellow at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand and since 2006 I have been a Visiting Professor of Management at CASS Business School.

In August 2008 I was appointed the Director of the newly established Essex Business School, a merger of the School of Accounting, Finance and Management in Colchester, and the School of Entrepreneurship & Business in Southend.
