Summary Cost & Management Accounting describes and illustrates the principal accounting techniques involved in the production of cost information and their application to a broad range of managerial decision-making, planning and control activities, coupled with an explanation and critical analysis of the underlying concepts and contemporary issues. Embracing both the practical and theoretical strands of management accounting systems, the text also highlights the tensions which often exist between conventional theory and modern practice. Cost & Management Accounting is written for undergraduate and postgraduate students on introductory to intermediate courses in management accounting, but will be particularly suitable for those who might subsequently undertake an advanced course; as such, it is also relevant to students preparing for cost and management accounting professional examinations
