What is it about?

The status of historical research in the contemporary accounting and management research literature is reflected upon, some of its fundamental methodological dimensions are briefly revisited, and the multiple potential roles which it has the capacity to fulfill are considered. A number of methodological and research subjects are selected which shows signs of maintaining their momentum or deserve experimentation or increased application. These include the historical narrative, macro literary style narrative histories, business history lessons for accounting and management history, critical theory informed research, emerging social history, and opportunities for research employing oral and visual history. Reflections are presented on the dividends for the individual historian and the historical research community that may accrue from opportunities taken up in the new millennium.
