Abstract

The chapter recognizes the significant contributions of Italian, Spanish and Portuguese researches in studying accounting as a socially constructed practice. In particular, it explores how Italian and Iberian scholars have contributed to unmasking the seemingly benign appearance of accounting practices which makes them invaluable as a tool in the exercise of power for institutions as diverse as the Church and the State and the Empires. It also provides an overview of the chapters included in the book.
