About the Book
Finance 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.

1. Financial Accounting
2. Financial Statement Analysis
3. Financial Ratios
4. Management Accounting &     Control
5. Budgeting & Budgetary &          Control
6. Human Resource Accounting
7. Inventory Planning & Control
8. Financial Bankruptcy &     Failures
9. Economic Value Addition
To 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".

The book would facilitate professors, researchers, post graduate & doctoral students, practicing mangers, finance executives working in the financial services sectors, banks, financial institutions, corporations and students of finance for ready referencing to further their academic and research activities to get access to works being done internationally at one place on the above topics.
