Chapter topics cover the role of accounting in global markets, development and classification, comparative accounting I and II, reporting and disclosure, foreign currency translation, accounting for changing prices, international accounting harmonization, international financial statement analysis, managerial planning and control, financial risk management, and international taxation and transfer pricing. For accounting or finance professionals.

This book is written with the express purpose of sensitizing students to the international dimensions of accounting and financial reporting. The world in which they will pursue their professional careers is a world dominated by global business and investment decisions. As most of these decisions are premised on financial data, a knowledge of international accounting is crucial for achieving proper understanding in international business and financial communications. Although ideal for upper division undergraduate students and masters students, we are pleased that contents of this award-winning effort have also benefited practicing accountants, financial executives, investment managers, accounting educators, and professional administrators around the world.
