The first detailedanalysis of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's (OECD) influence on global public sector reform. Based on extensive interviews and internal documents, this book explores the evolution of the OECD's approach to governance issues over the last 50 years and what its future agenda should be.

'Frontiers of Governance is a singular contribution to our understanding of the inner workings and outer influence of the OECD, particularly in terms of the organization's role in public management reform, public policy development, and governance issues around the world.'

- Jocelyne Bourgon, President of Public Governance International, former Clerk of the Privy Council, Canada, former Permanent Representative to the OECD, Delegation of Canada

'This is a timely work in an impressive series. Pal shows why the study of the OECD is indispensable for an understanding of networked governance. Going beyond traditional club-oriented institutional analyses, this well-crafted book probes issues at the core of current debates about policy adaption from budgeting, to anti-corruption and E-government. Although aware of the constraints imposed on the OECD's agenda, tools, and influence, Pal re-locates the OECD as a vital driver towards needed governance innovation.'

- Andrew F. Cooper, Professor, Balsillie School of International Affairs and Department of Political Science, University of Waterloo, Canada, and Distinguished Fellow, The Centre for International Governance Innovation

'Frontiers of Governance provides a definitive examination of the OECD that is both compendious and in-depth. It documents and analyses the OECD's unrivalled role in chronicling, dissecting, and proclaiming the trends and directions of public management across three decades. There is an illuminating account of movements in thinking and practice of public management, which is grounded in the OECD country surveys and cases from its member network. The book systematically examines and evaluates the roles and impact of the OECD in expanding international understanding of public management modernisation and providing benchmarks by which countries and academics can calibrate their positions.

- John Halligan, Research Professor of Government and Public Administration, Faculty of Business and Government, University of Canberra, Australia
