We analysed the changes from an interdisciplinary and critical perspective, drawing on our theoretical framework yet recognising it cannot stand alone without the empirical understandings. Our empirical insights were, therefore, critical and vital in developing our conceptual understanding of these changes. We see a situation where, over the years, a more ‘transactional’ approach to control has been developed and intensified (more of this in the substantive part of the book). However, after 25 years, some of the empirics are inevitably dated and we did not wish to write a history of public sector change.

The concern with Interdisciplinary and Critical Perspectives on Accounting (ICPA hereafter) has a relatively short history. Roslender and Dillard (2003) provide an account of this history and have made a distinction between the ‘Critical Accounting Project’ and the ‘Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Accounting (IPA) Project’. They see the former as a subset of the IPA Project. We have not sought to make this distinction. 3 Roslender and Dillard make the argument that ‘at its simplest, the IPA project’ (we would argue the ICPA project) ‘entails viewing accounting through the lens of another discipline’ (Roslender & Dillard, 2003, p.

There are two aspects to that context. The first is what we might see as the intellectual context. What is important here is the extent to which accounting as a discipline emerged from the strictures and limitations of economic thought and emerged as a broader social science. This enabled accounting researchers to ask different questions and make different and important contributions to organisations and society. We believe that the intellectual environment in the late 1970s and early 1980s was significant in enabling the interdisciplinary and critical research approach we have adopted to emerge.
