The new edition of Called to Account takes a broader perspective on how financial frauds have shaped the public accounting profession by focusing on cases of fraud around the globe. Ever entertaining and educational, the book traces the development of the accounting standards and legislation put in place as a direct consequence of these epic scandals. Chapters on ZZZZ Best and Arthur Andersen have been brought up to date and new chapters on Parmalat and Satyam have been added. There is also a new chapter devoted to The Great Recession. Through stories like Barry Minkow’s staged constructions sites and MiniScribe’s fake inventory number generating computer program called Cook Book, students will learn that fraud is nothing new, and that financial reform is heavily influenced by politics.  With discussion questions and a useful chart showing instructors and students how each chapter illustrates the topics covered in other textbooks, Called to Accountis the ideal companion for any class in auditing, advanced accounting or forensic accounting.
