This book analyses the bearing of global monotheistic faiths towards the philosophy and practice of record keeping and accounting throughout history. The author offers a comprehensive discussion of the literal and figurative processes of taking account and ascribing accountability that link religions such as Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Chapters address theology and accounting in tandem with social behaviours to demonstrate how auditing and calculating customs permeate practising religions. This book first highlights how the four monotheisms have viewed and incorporated accounting historically, and then looks forward to the accounting debates, technologies and traditions in today’s world that derive from these religious customs. Drawing heavily on the writings of Max Weber and Werner Sombart, the author demonstrates that accounting and capitalism have religious roots far beyond the Protestant ethic.
Complicated problems in society are increasingly being understood as technological or engineering problems. This techno-utopianism colours much discussion around politics, the economy and society. The ability to think critically about this is important but rare across the social sciences.
This book enables students to understand, measure and evaluate the role of technology in accounting and how that affects the wider world. With coverage of key technologies such as mobile and wireless, cloud computing, robotics and nanotechnology, the author demonstrates how organizations leverage disruptive technologies in order to create value.
Benefitting from an admirably broad scope, this text will provide advanced students of accounting a thorough understanding of the role of technology in their field whilst students in other disciplines will see the importance of accounting in understanding contemporary society.
