Review:
Praise for the first edition:

"This book is a long awaited and significant contribution tobusiness ethics. At last, a book that addresses the full range ofaccounting, tax, and audit issues, integrating the perspective ofthe accounting profession with that of a trained ethicist. This isa must-read for everyone in the accounting profession and inbusiness ethics. Bravo Duskas!"
--Patricia H. Werhane, Darden Graduate School, University of Virginia

"Accounting Ethics offers a superb, accessibleintroduction to the traditions and responsibilities of individualaccountants and their firms."
--Carlin Romano, The Philadelphia Inquirer

..". the author's clear, practical, and jargon-free presentationmakes this book a valuable resource or nonaccountants and requiredreading for every accountant and student of accounting."
--Choice, November 2003

"As a guide to the basic issues and ideas concerning ethics forstudents with little prior exposure to the debates in accountingand the theories in ethics, this text is likely to be very useful.It is easy to read, informative and provides a good base fordiscussion."
--European Accounting Review

From the Back Cover:
This new edition of Accounting Ethics has beencomprehensively updated to deal with the rapid changes in standardsand regulations which have occurred within the accountingprofession since 2002. The authors systematically explore the newrange of ethical issues which have emerged in recent years, including the significant impact on approaches to ethical problemswhich resulted from the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the financial crisis of2008, and the move to replace GAAP with the International FinancialReporting Standards (IFRS).

The book begins by investigating the nature and purpose ofaccounting and follows with a brief study of the nature and use ofethical principles in determining accountants'responsibilities; it examines the ethical imperatives that bindprofessionals and the specific principles and rules that variousaccounting codes dictate. Next, the book explores the major typesof practices in which accountants engage - auditing, managerial accounting, and tax accounting - and theresponsibilities associated with those practices. The new topicsare addressed in a section which highlights the debates over theuse of fair-value accounting and principles- versus rules-basedstandards.

With the additional expertise of Julie Ragatz as co-author, Accounting Ethics, 2nd Edition remains asignificant and highly informative text for anyone studying orworking in the area of Business Ethics.
