has emerged as one of the most vital component for growth
and development. Its emergence as a discipline in the
last quarter of the 20th century brings forth it’s
vitality. Finance, one of the most-scarce resources, has
been the constraining factor in the growth and development
of an economy, firm, corporate and even an individual.
Our working abroad, traveling internationally, attending
and addressing international gatherings of American Finance
Assoc., and Financial Management Association, and meeting
with some of the leading finance professionals in Europe,
Japan, US, Latin America & Far East have increasingly
led us to develop a strong conviction towards the emergence
of Finance as a discipline.
A decision maker is often concerned with understanding
financial statements their presentation, financial analysis,
and ensuring that the necessary legal requirements have
been suitably met. He is little concerned with the details
in which accounting records are maintained, as that is
more a matter of routine and procedure once an accounting
system is adopted. However he needs to have sufficient
knowledge of those aspects which are intricate, require
value judgement and which may have serious implications
for the financial position and profitability of a firm
depending upon the use of alternative decisions.
There are a large number of text books as well as research
studies, available in Finance. But to the best of our
knowledge there is no compendium presenting at one place
the literature available on Finance, recognizing the fact
that there exist wide time gap in the research being done,
published in journals and included in books.
fill this gap we have attempted to present in this volume
the latest state-of-the-art in Finance, the volume includes
extensive bibliographies on different aspects of Finance.
These would be disseminated as compendium of series in
“Literature in Finance".
