A Q&A With Andrew S. Erickson

Andrew Erickson is a Professor of Strategy at the U.S. Naval War College’s China Maritime Studies Institute and an expert on China’s military. His recent work has focused on China’s “maritime gray zone operations” and how the U.S. should approach the next few years, which he terms “the decade of greatest danger.” In this week’s interview with Eyck Freymann, he talks about why the Biden administration needs to accept some friction and when he thinks calmer seas will arrive.
