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.
