PressestimmenPhilip D. Bougen This is a delightful book. It is what we have come to expect from Zeff: painstakingly researched, elegantly written and vastly informative. As someone who has been fortunate enough in my academic career to have intersected with Stephen Zeff on a number of occasions, as I read the book the comparison became apparent: the description of humanist, scholar, and accounting educator could be convincingly applied to the book's author.

Hatfield, with some 300 pages of biography and review, and nearly 200 pages of Hatfield's own published and unpublished papers. Professor Zeff started writing this book in 1964, and it evidently became a labor of love.
