In her new book, "The Superpower Myth," she has a sharp critique of Bush's first-term embrace of what she calls the "superpower myth" — the idea that American military might can do whatever it wants wherever it chooses. But America may be on the verge of a second-term shift from enforcer to persuader once again, she points out.
