Negotiating The New START Treaty

by Rose Gottemoellervia Cambria Press
Wednesday, January 13, 2021

Rose Gottemoeller, the US chief negotiator of the New START treaty—and the first woman to lead a major nuclear arms negotiation—delivers in this book an invaluable insider’s account of the negotiations between the US and Russian delegations in Geneva in 2009 and 2010. It also examines the crucially important discussions about the treaty between President Barack Obama and President Dmitry Medvedev, and it describes the tough negotiations Gottemoeller and her team went through to gain the support of the Senate for the treaty. And importantly, at a time when the US Congress stands deeply divided, it tells the story of how, in a previous time of partisan division, Republicans and Democrats came together to ratify a treaty to safeguard the future of all Americans.

by Michael McConnellvia Princeton University Press

In today's divided public square, presidential power has never been more contested. The President Who Would Not Be King (November 10) cuts through the partisan rancor to reveal what the Constitution really tells us about the powers of the president.
