Praise for Nancy Soderberg's

The Superpower Myth

"A sensible, hard-headed, realistic alternative to the excesses of America's Iraq-era dealings with the world."
-James Fallows, National Correspondent, The Atlantic Monthly

"One of the greatest strengths of Soderberg's book is her insider's account of many of the seminal events of the 1990s. Soderberg [gives us] a bird's-eye view of such critical issues as intervention in the Balkans and Haiti and U.S. efforts to combat al Qaeda and hunt down Osama bin Laden."
-Charles A. Kupchan, The Washington Post Book World

"Does America Need a Foreign Policy? by Henry Kissinger, The Choice by Zbigniew Brzezinski, and The Superpower Myth by Nancy Soderberg-all of these authors have firsthand experience in government, and it shows. The Superpower Myth, which doubles as a memoir of Soderberg's years in the Clinton administration, is a history told from inside meeting rooms, full of detail about how government bureaucracies actually function-and why sometimes they don't."
-Jonathan D. Tepperman, The New York Times Book Review
