    Abstract

    Initially endowed by the Commonwealth Institute of Accountants, and then by the various successive antecedent bodies of today's CPA Australia, the CPA Australia-University of Melbourne Annual Research Lecture series in accounting provided Geoff Burrows with the raw material for constructing his book, aptly titled 'Wisdom from the podium'. Burrows, currently Principal Fellow and formerly a member of the Professoriate of the Department of Accounting and Business Information Systems at The University of Melbourne, identifies that this research lecture is 'almost certainly the world's most-enduring annual accounting lecture series' (p.1). His objectives in authoring the book, both of which he realises, were to 'communicate the excellence of [the] source materials, and faithfully present the key ideas contained in each lecture' (p.XVIII).
