From the Back Cover:

Michael Granof and Penelope Wardlow's new text offers concise, accessible, and highly flexible coverage of the core concepts, practices, and principles of government and not-for-profit accounting.

Based on Granof's highly successful GOVERNMENT AND NOT-FOR-PROFIT ACCOUNTING,2/E, this new text identifies the key issues and unique features of government and not-for-profit accounting, and explores the reasons for current accounting standards, including the new financial reporting model for governments (GASB Statement No. 34). The text also explores related financial management issues, sets forth the strengths and limitations of financial reports, and discusses how financial statements may be interpreted and used by a variety of interested parties, such as future managers, bond analysts, and members of legislatures and governing boards.
