              Philip Brown is one of the most admired and respected accounting academics alive today. He was a pioneer in capital markets research in accounting, and his 1968 article, co-authored with Ray Ball, An Empirical Evaluation of Accounting Income Numbers, arguably had a greater impact... on the course of accounting research, directly and indirectly, than any other article during the second half of the twentieth century. Since that time, his innovative research has focused on issues that bridge accounting and finance, including the relationships between net profit reports and the stock market, the long-run performance of acquiring firms, statutory sanctions and voluntary corporate disclosure, and the politics and future of national accounting standards to name a few. This volume brings together the greatest hits of Brown s career, including several articles that were published in out-of-the-way places, for easier use by students and researchers in the field. With a foreword written by Stephen A. Zeff, and an introduction that discusses the evolution of Brown s research interests and explains the context for each of the essays included in the volume, this book offers the reader a unique look inside this remarkable 50-year career.

              Jack Dempsey to Joe Louis: Boxing's Roaring Twenties and Fighting Thirties
               

              Jack Dempsey to Joe Louis: Boxing's Roaring Twenties and Fighting Thirties (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              They were two of boxing's greatest decades - featuring two of the finest heavyweight champions of all time. Dempsey and Louis fought their way from nothing to world titles at a time when the sport was winning a mass audience. Boxing grew through the boom years of the twenties the...n, when depression struck in the thirties, fans saw it as a symbol of their daily struggles. So they followed ever more fiercely and big fights in both decades reflected events outside the ring. As patterns of work and entertainment changed a spectacular new champion was crowned when the coming star Jack Dempsey destroyed the ageing Jess Willard in the Slaughter of Toledo. Dempsey was the hero who went to zero and back after the famous long count fight with Gene Tunney in 1927. In 1938 Brown Bomber Joe Louis fought for all of America and annihilated Hitler's champion Max Schmeling. They were busy days in the blood spattered theatre of boxing and the cast was huge. It included characters like Slapsie Maxie Rosenbloom who had nearly 300 fights then ran a nightclub in Hollywood, Hurricane Henry Armstrong who held three world titles at once, and Luis Firpo - the Wild Bull of the Pampas who charged Dempsey clean through the ropes. Battling Siki was a titleholder from Paris who, in between fights, strolled round with his pet lion on a leash. Then there was clowning Max Baer who had a hammer in his right fist, dancing Irishman Billy Conn and Cinderella Man James Braddock. There were many more as the boxing business was developed by promoters like Tex Rickard who created the first million dollar fight. A Jewish manager Joe Jacobs enraged Germany's Nazis when he took charge of Max Schmeling's career and managers like Doc Kearns showed they had more tricks than Don King. But boxing has always been more than just a sport. The determined and dedicated individual who takes charge and fights his way through has a place deep in American culture. This is the story of how at decisive times - boxing has provi
