Payne Distinguished Lecturer at Stanford University's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies and its Center for International Security and Cooperation. She is also a research fellow at the Hoover Institution. Before joining Stanford, Gottemoeller was the Deputy Secretary General of NATO from 2016 to 2019, where she helped to drive forward NATO's adaptation to new security challenges in Europe and in the fight against terrorism. Prior to NATO, she served for nearly five years as the Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security at the U.S. Department of State, advising the Secretary of State on arms control, nonproliferation and political-military affairs. While Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control, Verification and Compliance in 2009 and 2010, she was the chief US negotiator of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) with the Russian Federation. Before this government service, she was a senior associate with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, with joint appointments to the Nonproliferation and Russia programs. She served as the Director of the Carnegie Moscow Center from 2006 to 2008 and is currently a nonresident fellow in Carnegie's Nuclear Policy Program.


"As advances in technology usher in a new age of weaponry, future negotiators would benefit from reading Rose Gottemoeller's memoir of the process leading to the most significant arms control agreement of recent decades." -Henry Kissinger, former U.S. Secretary of State"Rose Gottemoeller's book on the New START negotiations is the definitive book on this treaty or indeed, any of the nuclear treaties with the Soviet Union or Russia." -William J. Perry, former U.S. Secretary of Defense"This book is important, but not just because it tells you about a very significant past, but also because it helps you understand the future." - George Shultz, former U.S. Secretary of State"This memoir by one of our most skilled and respected diplomats provides both inspiration and valuable lessons for those who will follow in her shoes with this enormous responsibility." -Sam Nunn, Chairman of the Board of the Nuclear Threat Initiative"A deeply informed, highly readable, and timely analysis of one of the most important nuclear treaties in recent history .. an invaluable guide for understanding the craft of arms control negotiations, as well as the critical role and responsibility of skillful, knowledgeable, and determined negotiators." -Fiona Hill, Senior Fellow, Foreign Policy Program, The Brookings Institution"What makes this such a timely offering is the wisdom born of success that can help guide Washington's next phase of critical negotiations with Moscow.
