In 2010, we introduced Nanotechnology Environmental Health and Safety: Risks, Regulation, and Management to provide a collection of diverse and balanced perspectives on emerging nanotechnology environmental health and safety risks. To this end, we included chapters contributed from the insurance industry, risk assessors, toxicologists, labor union representatives, lawyers, academics, entrepreneurs, and other nanotechnology thought leaders from around the globe. Each of these perspectives offers a different glimpse and insights into the very real and complex challenges that accompany the development and commercialization of an emerging technology into today’s interconnected world. As the nanotechnology risk story continues to unfold, we are witnessing rapid changes in these perspectives and the introduction of entirely new ones, and this is where our second edition begins.
