    Abstract

    The paper seeks to extend the debate on the accounting as the social and institutional practice and to put it the context of development and governance issues to highlight the specific interrelationships in the field. It takes the interdisciplinary approach to the issues discussed (combining the discourse from history, economics, sociology, development studies and accounting itself). The paper shows that accounting is the social calculative practice which is interrelated with the governance mechanisms at the micro and macro levels of the economy and services as the technology of such governance. From this it draws original insight into the development of accounting practices in less developed countries in the context of evolution of socio-economic orders.
