Critical Perspectives on Accounting Spring 1999 Conference

Critical Perspectives on Accounting aims to provide a forum for the growing
number of accounting researchers and practitioners who realize that
conventional theory and practice is ill-suited to the challenges of the
modern environment, and that accounting practices and corporate behavior
are inextricably connected with many allocative, distributive, social, and
ecological problems of our era. From such concerns, a new literature is
emerging that seeks to reformulate corporate, social, and political
activity, and the theoretical and practical means by which we apprehend and
affect that activity.
