John Erickson made his mark as a historian, scholar, soldier and military analyst during a period of major upheaval in international relations after the Second World War — especially in Europe — and during the clash between Soviet Communism and the Western group of nations which became known as the Cold War. He was actively involved in efforts to establish an informed academic dialogue between East and West on arms control issues. The earliest initiative came to Edinburgh through a process which became known as the Edinburgh Conversations.
