From the Publisher"As an introduction to this new science topic, the book covers the basic science, followed by vivid examples of the utility and relevance of nanotechnology. As with any new discovery, the legal, ethical, and social implications are examined. The riveting writing style captures the reader's interest. The book is a gem, not only for its content, but for the way it enhances the text with human interest interviews and organized resource appendices….This extraordinarily well-structured text clearly explains to both students and the public the concepts of nanotechnology. Readers will be captivated by its vividly lucid approach. It is useful as a source of applications to enrich content, as research for secondary students, or to motivate students contemplating future scientific and engineering careers."
