Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for the first edition:

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

"Accounting Ethics offers a superb, accessible introduction to the traditions and responsibilities of individual accountants and their firms."
Carlin Romano, The Philadelphia Inquirer

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

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

Review

"Accounting Ethics is unique in its pragmatic approach to its subject matter, providing an effective balance between the practical elements of accounting and the thorny, sometimes more subtle ethical issues that confront its practitioners on a regular basis.  Its methodical and comprehensive examination of ethical theory and everyday accounting practice illuminates decision-making for both practitioners and others seeking to access this otherwise complicated topic."
Laura P. Hartman, DePaul University

"This book should be read by anyone interested in accounting.  It shows how accounting and ethics are connected, and you can't be a good accountant without taking ethics into 'account.'"
R. Edward Freeman, The Darden School, University of Virginia

Other reviews from the first edition:

"...this textbook is likely to be very useful. It is easy to read, informative and provides a good base for discussion."
Stuart Turley, University of Manchester

"Accounting Ethics is a book for our troubled times. The Duskas provide a basic primer on ethics for accounting that is helpful to accountants and non-accountants alike. They deftly weave the saga of Enron and Arthur Andersen through a practical and realistic presentation of accounting ethics."
Thomas W. Dunfee, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania

I rated Accounting Ethics by Duska five stars because it was a great book that I believe every accountant should read it. The book outlines what potential dilemmas accountants might face and it enables accountants to make sound and ethical decisions. This is a must read book.
