It doesn't appear to be a technical book, according to the press release.

The Nanoethics Group today announced that it has released a collection
of important papers addressing a range of near-term issues related to
nanotechnology's ethical and social implications.
The book is divided into five units: foundational issues; risk and
regulation; industry and policy; the human condition; and selected
global issues. The essays tackle such contentious issues as
environmental impact, health dangers, medical benefits, intellectual
property, professional code of ethics, privacy, international
governance, and more.
