"Manuel Teodoro offers a whole new way of thinking about the motivations of policy entrepreneurs, tying the urge to innovate with career ambition. This book breaks new ground, and does so with an effective blending of new theorizing and new empirical work. This is sound scholarship that is original and exciting."

"Teodoro uses sensible theorizing, compelling case studies, and unique data to show that two masters, current employers and potential future employers, influence how and whether administrators innovate. Going well beyond conventional principal-agent approaches, Bureaucratic Ambition is among the most important books on bureaucracy in recent years and is one of the best written."
