Warlords, spies, fundamentalists and billionaires, technocrats, aid workers and soldier-presidents — these are the characters whose missions and ambitions formed the decades which have followed the Cold War. From Kabul to Khartoum, from Guantanamo Bay to Cairo, a fractured world has since emerged — in which globalisation has been challenged, Western hegemony thwarted, and as many uncertainties as opportunities created. Mark Huband has followed these events from the frontline of history, in ground-breaking books and award-winning journalism.

Ever since he transformed popular music in the mid-1960s, Bob Dylan has remained a million steps ahead of all those he has left in his wake. More than half a century later, the influence of his music, lyrics and take on life, are incalculable. As a 12-year old in an Essex new town, Mark was gripped by Dylan's mastery of language and melody. Now, Mark's collection of 31 sonnets - Milestones: A Journey with Bob Dylan - tells a story of travelling through life with Dylan's music ringing in his ears.
