Review quote

'A book that the qualitative accounting research community has longed for. Enlightening and interesting ... it is a very informative reference work on qualitative research methods in accounting.' - Gunnar Rimmel, International Journal of Accounting


'Although accounting practice and research has evolved considerably, a serious and comprehensive collection on qualitative theories and methods is undoubtedly overdue. This volume definitively fills the void, as a thoughtful compendium of major issues confronting the discipline and its knowledge base. Academics have long lamented the need for a volume for teaching and learning the range of topics offered in this compilation: interpretive research, critical inquiry, ethnography, case study, fieldwork, and many others. Seasoned researchers and emerging scholars alike will be grateful for many years to come, as the editors and authors -- internationally recognized innovators -- have crafted indispensable works. An assemblage of insightful and pioneering work, the book provides a copious dividend, making our long wait worthy.' - Professor Cheryl R. Lehman, Hofstra University, USA


'The first comprehensive account of all you need to know about being in the world of qualitative accounting research. The power of this book lies in its scope, covering everything from abstract "worldviews" (or paradigms) to lived experience in the form of "how to do it" tips from the coalface. All presented in the lively, engaging and very readable writing style we would expect from these four editors. A "must-read" qualitative methods book for researchers and students alike.' - Professor Sue Llewellyn, Alliance Manchester Business School, UK





'World-leading experts, important topics, wise advice and authentic reflections. This book has all the ingredients for an essential guide on qualitative accounting research. I will be keeping this one close to my desk and I'll be encouraging my students to do the same.' - Professor Deryl Northcott, Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand


'This wide-ranging book is an essential reference point for PhDs and young scholars seeking to navigate the range of qualitative research methods applicable to the study of accounting. The combination of excellent guidance on a variety of methods with personal reflections from researchers is especially engaging. It is also a timely text that deserves to be influential as qualitative research in accounting secures increasing prominence internationally.' - Professor Brendan O'Dwyer, Alliance Manchester Business School, UK and University of Amsterdam Business School, The Netherlands
