Molecular Nanotechnology and the World System
Molecular nanotechnology (MNT) is an emerging technology that has the potential to redefine the sources of power in the world and to change the structure of the international system, thus influencing the business of states, from how they live and trade to how they conduct war. It is therefore prudent for us to examine this new technology, and study its potential to reshape the world around us.
