Obituary: Eric C. Anderson

It is with profound sadness that Dunn Books announces the sudden and unexpected death of Eric C. Anderson, Ph.D. on October 5, 2018.

A retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant colonel, Eric was a member of the U.S. Intelligence Community serving tours in Hawaii, Iraq, Japan, Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Washington D.C., whose work focused on Northeast Asia—specifically China and North Korea.

He was an assistant professor of political science at the USAF Academy; served as a guest speaker for a wide range of classes at Harvard University; and was an active participant in the preeminent professional development program for public sector executives at the Kennedy School of Government.

Among his many military duties, he authored articles for the President’s Daily Brief, the National Intelligence Council, the International Security Advisory Board and the Department of Defense.

In addition, Eric authored multiple books, most recently Osiris and Anubis based on his military experiences. In September he completed a successful New York City and Washington, D.C. book tour supporting his latest novel, Byte, a book that offers a first look at using cryptocurrency to upend politics in Moscow.

Eric’s literary contributions, from his fiction writing to his understanding of the complex intelligence and military challenges facing Western democracies, are incalculable. He was an exemplary and remarkable human being who will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
