Summary
"This is a field dominated by journal articles and popular periodicals. This book is a major step toward correcting that problem. [It exhibits] interdisciplinarity, focus on sustainability, and balanced perspectives. This volume uses the interdisciplinary lens of sustainability to assess the promises and pitfalls presented by the emergence of nanotechnology Despite the enormous potential of nanotechnology for good and for harm, there has been woefully little critical analytical attention paid to its social and environmental implications. This volume is an important corrective to that inattention. This book starts a dialogue that is absolutely vital if we are to have hope for democratic participation in determining the role, purpose, and direction of technological innovation." - Kenneth A. Gould, City University of New York-Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center, USA]]>.
