Description

"Avoiding extreme perspectives - unwarranted hype and absolute rejection - What Can Nanotechnology Learn from Biotechnology? explores the diverse territory of proponents and opponents of challenging but potentially risky technologies. Considering the lessons to be learned from the controversy over genetically modified foods, and how those lessons can be applied to developing nanotechnologies, particularly agricultural and other food-related applications, it explores the challenges and issues of the environmental, social, and ethical impact of nanotechnology in addition to the technical and economical impacts."--BOOK JACKET.
