The links below are to Chapter Summaries for the 3rd edition of the ABKY Management Accounting textbook. There have been subsequent editions of the text with somewhat different titles and authors. For example: Atkinson, Kaplan, Matsumura, and Young. 2011. Management Accounting: Information for Decision-Making and Strategy Execution, 6th edition. Prentice Hall. I chose this textbook to summarize because these authors provide a very different perspective than that found in traditional management accounting textbooks.
