This lavishly illustrated book tells the story of the development of the OECD from
the founding of its predecessor organisation, the OEEC after World War II, to the
transformation into the OECD in 1960, and its evolution since that time. Covering
the stewardship of 6 Secretaries-General over a period of 50 years, the book describes
what OECD does and how it does it. An interesting chapter on a Day in the Life of
a Chateau, tracks a typical day for a variety of OECD staffers, illustrating the breadth
and variety of what people do at the OECD.
