The Emergence of "The New Accounting History"

Paper co-authored with Nicolae-Ionut Bertalan

“The New Accounting History” (NAH) is usually associated with a special issue of Accounting, Organizations and Society published in 1991, although publications within this research tradition had been appearing for at least 10 years before this. The present paper examines the emergence of NAH in the decade or so before this special issue, and studies the way in which Peter Miller, Trevor Hopper and Richard Laughlin, in their introduction to this special issue, defined NAH, the diverse literatures to which they appealed, and the extent to which the other papers in the special issue reflected the emerging notion of NAH.
