Research in Management Accounting: Malaysian Environment
Editor: Ruhanita Maelah
Date Of Publication: Jan 2011
This book focuses on research in management accounting that uses Malaysia’s business environment as the scope of study. The motivation to embark on this publication was due to the recognition that although management accounting has received increasing interest from various organizations including government, businesses and educators, published documents that report findings from research in management accounting undertaken in Malaysia are still limited. The objective of this book is to address the gap by providing readers with five research oriented articles on management accounting issues, namely Performance Measurement Design in Service Organizations; Management Accounting and Control Systems in the Service Sector; Activity Based Costing; Intellectual Capital and Management Accounting Practices; and Customer Focused Manufacturing Strategy and Performance Measurement Systems.
The articles are written by a pool of active researchers in the area of management accounting, and are expected to have high academic value. Each is complete with a literature review, methodology, data analysis and references. Even though this is the case, the articles have also been carefully chosen and edited for the general reader. This book is suitable as a reference for researchers, academics, managers, accountants, and policy makers.

From Uncertain Lives: Culture, Race and Neoliberalism in Australia
''Stratton offers important critiques of the function of racism in everyday relations in Australia. In so doing, he canvasses an impressive array of sites and theories, inviting the reader into significant debates and urging them to appreciate the magnitude of these urgent ethical issues and their fundamental relationship to the workings of capital. More than a snapshot of a specific political landscape, however, Uncertain Lives provides a way into key theoretical debates circulating in the first decade of the 2000s, weaving complex theory into grounded debates. These critical interventions highlight the continuity current policy and law has with historical forms of racism and exclusion in Australia. As such, the insights developed in this book bring to the forefront the urgent need for our politicians to reflect upon the ethics of our policy positions. While the book is brought together by the overriding concerns of race, culture and neoliberalism, each chapter also makes sense on its own, making it an ideal choice for inclusion on University courses concerned with the nexus of politics and race, immigration and exclusion, neoliberalism and punishment, or popular culture and racism.''

“For thirty years, Jon Stratton has been the sharpest, most acute observer of cultural phenomena around. This latest collection of his investigations into the racial contours of Australian neoliberalism is further testimony to the extraordinary contribution he has made to cultural studies around the globe.”

“In a context of global crises – political, economic and social – Stratton’s book stages a series of compelling interventions that clarify the origins of these crises and their impact on the lives of both citizens and socially designated ‘others.’ At once analytical and impassioned, this is a landmark book offering a rigorous and inspired account of the destructive ways in which neoliberalism has critically transformed Australian society and culture.”
