Document begins: NEW PUBLICATIONS FROM IIED: Issue 35 ­ June 2006 Welcome to IIED's monthly e-bulletin announcing the latest publications from the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), an independent, non- profit research institute working in the field of sustainable development. http://www.iied.org SPECIAL ANNOUNCMENT Hard Rain: Our headlong collision with nature Marke Edwards, Lloyd Timberlake (lyric by Bob Dylan) June 2006, Pb, July, 1969. Mark Edwards, lost on the edge of the Sahara, is rescued by a Tuareg nomad, who takes him to his people, makes a fire and produces a cassette player. Bob Dylan sings "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall". As Dylan piles image upon image, the idea comes to Edwards of illustrating each line of the song. In the years that follow, he travels to cover 150 countries to photograph our headlong collision with nature. Hard Rain is the result, an unforgettable photo essay illustrating Dylan's prophetic lyric, combining with a brilliantly-argued reproach by Lloyd Timberlake of our lack of action in the face of global collapse.
