The chapter reviews various debates as to how best to undertake research in accounting history. It distinguishes "history of accounting" - where the object of research is accounting ideas, methods, organisations, etc. - from "socio-historical accounting research" - where the object of research is how accounting has impacted on individuals, organisations and society in the past.
