text on international financial reporting. It is primarily designed for undergraduate
and postgraduate courses in comparative and international aspects of
accounting. We believe that a proper understanding requires broad overviews (as in
Part I), but that these must be supported by detailed information on real countries
and companies (as in Parts II to IV) and across-the-board comparisons of major
topics (as in Parts V and VI).
This book was first published in 1981.

THIS BOOK ELABORATES a law and economics–based theoretical under-
standing of the structure of the international legal system. The need for
such a work is clear. Political science has only recently reengaged with in-
ternational law. Economics has not sought to explain international law
broadly, although it has made forays into international trade law, while law
and economics has only addressed limited aspects of international law. In-
ternational legal theory itself has until recently been mired in a stale and
equipoised debate between natural law and positive law.
Risk is an important
aspect of any business
operation. Without taking
business risks, growth and
profi t would be almost
impossible. It permeates all
of the fundamental business
challenges companies face,
from recruiting the best
people to managing the
business’ fi nance. However,
the best companies are not
those that avoid risk, but
rather those that understand
and control the risks they are

ambitious and controversial book which will be of interest to all interna-
tional relations scholars and students and practitioners of international

rightly claim the name computer.Variety is exhibited not only in cost, but also in size,
performance, and application.

Technology is pervasive—invading all areas of our personal and business
lives. In our personal lives, we have some control over how much
technology we will tolerate, but not so in our professional lives. Every aspect
of modern organizations involves technology, to the extent that auditors can
no longer audit around the computer as they did from 1960 until recently.
Technology is an important element of a majority of the controls that are,
or should be, in place.
