Academics, scholars, students, professionals and practitioners, as well as regulators and standard setters can all of them benefit from reading the resources and contents of the book." (Vicente Condor, Accounting in Europe, Vol. 13 (3), November, 2016)

"This book is ambitious in its explicit goal of providing a comprehensive view of the state of the art of European public sector accounting ... . The book is especially useful for scholars in the field of public accounting, as well as for practitioners engaged in internal activities; it can also serve as a compendium for Master-level students in Public Management and Accounting." (Tommaso Agasisti, The International Journal of Accounting, Vol. 51, January, 2016)

"The book aims to present the national accounting practices and norms of fourteen European Union members in addition to Switzerland. ... a valuable addition to the existing literature of institutions sources, academic publications and professional firms' position papers. ... a timely and relevant contribution contributing greatly to the rich array of information needed to make decisions concerning the possible EPSAS. ... By providing comparative knowledge on public sector accounting, the book provides relevant input to policy formulation and analysis."
