Summary:
This is the first volume to engage scholarly perspectives on environmental regulation in light of the challenges posed by emerging nanotechnologies. Contributors focus on the overarching lessons of decades of regulatory response, while posing a fundamental core question: How can government regulatory systems satisfy the desire for scientific innovation while also taking into account the direct and indirect effects of 21st emerging technologies, particularly in the face of scientific uncertainties? With perspectives from economics, history, philosophy, and public policy, this new resource illuminates the various challenges inherent in the development of nanotechnology and works towards a reorganization of government regulatory approaches.
