This is one of the only texts available that addresses financial and managerial accounting within the framework of all three major areas of the public sector. Clearly written and comprehensive in its scope, Finkler's text provides the fundamentals of financial management for those pursuing careers in government, not-for-profit, and health organizations who lack a financial background. The unique and accessible presentation of the rules specific to the public sector provides the framework for students to access and apply financial information more effectively. The use of examples specific to government, health, and not-for-profit organizations makes concepts easier to grasp for students.
