It provides a unique compilation of a major stream of work within nanotechnology in society and its connections in US and W. Europe. It captures and explores many of the tensions surrounding this new enterprise of predicting technologies’ futures, while indicating some of the ways this process reproduces past challenges in technoscience and society. The collection includes pieces from an admirable range of ‘stakeholders’ in nanotechnologies’ futures: STS researchers from several countries and a number of institutions representing diverse views about nanotechnologies’ potentials for assessment, and a smaller number from science, NGOs, industry, and government. The collection brings together several key US policy documents, as well as scholarly texts, more informal reports, and personal statements—the array of formats is an interesting approach to considering the ‘future in the making’ that is the nano enterprise and its societal interactions.
