Hiroshima and Nagasaki – 72 Years Later

It's been 72 years since the Bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and, a few days later, on Nagasaki, Japan. Since that week in August when the world was changed forever, the global nuclear arsenal has risen and dropped. Countries have joined and left the nuclear weapons club, with North Korea becoming the most recent member. Current nuclear modernization programs are driving a new arms race, but there's a glimmer of hope with the adoption of the UN nuclear weapons ban. There's so much left to do. Here's a collection of reading for what you need to remember, and what you will need to know as we move forward.
