The nanotechnology issue of Chain Reaction, Friends of the Earth’s quarterly magazine, provides a great introduction to this powerful new technology. Chain Reaction tackles all the hard issues that industry and government are attempting to ignore in the emerging nano debate. Who controls nanotechnology? Whose interests is nanotechnology being developed in? Who benefits? Who bears the risks? Who gets to decide what our future world looks like?

Chain Reaction provides thought-provoking articles on all the big issues nanotechnology raises – for democracy, the military, the environment, food and agriculture, health, global trade, medicine and more.
