Owen Bennett Jones introduces personal insights, experiences and analysis from BBC correspondents and writers from around the world.

Sarah Birke compares the very different nuclear narratives presented in two museums - in Hiroshima and Los Alamos - and asks what they mean for debates over disarmament today.
