About this book

This book explores the enormous diversity in social perspectives on the emergence of nanoscale sciences and technologies. It points to four nodes of interest where nano meets macro: in the making, in the public eye, in the big questions, and in the tough decisions. Each node draws attention to important lines of research and pertinent issues. The book is designed for interdisciplinary teaching, but the richness of issues and perspectives makes it of interest to all researchers, practitioners, and non-academics wanting an introduction to social perspectives on nanoscale sciences and technologies.

Media reviews

"The editors have compiled a beautifully diverse and timely collection on the social and cultural aspects of nano-scale science and engineering. With informed academic analysis, fresh-from-the-field NGO experience, and provocative images, fiction and poetry, their contribution is as multifaceted as nano itself."
- Prof. David Guston, Arizona State University, USA
