    We need some context to give you a proper answer. In general, "antecedent" means something that comes before something else that logically stems from the antecedent.

    Re: Antecedents means in this case?

    Sure. Here is the first sentence for the first chapter.
    "This paper investigates four potential reasons for budgeting in organizations (operational planning, performance evaluation, communication of goals, and strategy formation), their antecedents (e.g. organizational strategy and structure), and several budgeting characteristics (e.g., target difficulty and budget emphasis) that potential influence these reasons-to-performance."

    Thanks!

    For me it says that one must understand the organizational strategy and structure along with target difficulty and budget emphasis to understand the actual budget of an organization.
