The flaming torch

As accountants, we should have an understanding of the history of our profession and of the challenges which face us today so that we can prepare ourselves better for the twenty-first century. This book has three chapters, each by a different author. Franz Volmer describes Pacioli's life and work. Then Stephen Walker takes us through highlights from the history of the accountancy profession. In the final chapter, Fenton Robb reviews aspects of the interaction between information technology and the accountancy profession.
