Beschreibung

This book explains the fast moving world of the new nanotechnology and who controls it, ranging from medical, energy, computing, and even military interests. It explores the potential consequences--the upsides as well as the downsides - for individuals, the environment, and relations between the powers. Nanotechnology could bridge or widen the gap between developing and industrialised countries - that is a political decision that civil society must address.
