Mark has also been posted to the Middle East and Moscow for The Globe and Mail. He has covered the arrival of Canada's troops in Afghanistan, the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, Russia's war in Chechnya, the Orange Revolution in Ukraine and the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah conflict.
A four-time National Newspaper Award winner, Mark is also the author of The New Cold War: Revolutions, Rigged Elections and Pipeline Politics - which was published in 2007 by Random House - and The China Diaries, an e-book of his train travels through the Middle Kingdom along with photographer John Lehmann.
He has interviewed many world leaders, including former Israeli president Shimon Peres, Jordan's King Abdullah II and Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi.
