Special Issue of our Review of Policy Research journal on #Nanotechnology and #PoliticalScience from Wiley Online Library: "For political scientists interested in science, technology, and the environment, I hope these papers have made an appropriately enticing invitation to look to nanotechnology, and other emerging technologies, as opportunities for thinking about such topics as policy change, changing models of governance, the dynamics of mass and elite opinion, the role of gender and other underrepresented perspectives, the creation of deliberative institutions and processes, and the role of the private sector and the operationalization of concepts like responsibility." http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/ropr.12038/abstract
