Product Description


"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
