From the cover: “The affairs of a professional body, however important and august, seldom provide the stuff for a lively and dramatic history; the merit of this record of the English Institute of Chartered Accountants is that it is compellingly readable. Far from being dry as dust, it presents a vigorous documentary picture of how, with the rapid industrial and financial expansion of the last too years, this profession has emerged from what previously was no more than a worthy ‘occupation’; of how it slowly codified its aims and principles and won for its members the respect and trust of the community.
