Review

?The authors state the purpose of this book "is to develop a conceptual framework of internal auditing in terms of concrete measurable systems." Insisting that all auditing is internal auditing, they describe the audit function as a subsystem of human systems and make extensive use of "living systems theory" as expounded by James G. Miller (Living Systems). There is some rivalry between independent public accountants (CPAs) and internal auditors who are employees of companies and other organizations. The rivalry mainly involves issues of relative status as a "profession" and the role of independence. Swanson and Marsh do not hide the fact that they side with internal auditors. In 11 chapters they apply a systems view to many aspects of audits, including defining internal auditing, professional standards, types of information, measurement error, and ethics. Many potentially valuable insights are developed in this analysis. The authors do not claim to provide a comprehensive auditing theory; rather they explore one way of looking at auditing, its role in the economy, and the desirability of different forms of regulation. Useful in programs that include graduate work in accounting.?-Choice
