Editorial Reviews

Review

The vocabulary is exotic and the sentences deliberately structured to contain many layers of meaning. These intriguing essays will enhance any reader's understanding of feminist technoscience studies and will be welcomed in academic libraries.
–Kathryn R. Bartelt, Univ. of Evansville Libs., IN

Format: Paperback
An excellent introduction to the writings of Professor Haraway, but also a necessary addition to her previous books. (It is nice to find essays once only located in various anthologies now within the same book!) The new essays on dogs and kinship are stellar, illustrating how Harway's work is moving forward to advance the study of science and politics in everyday life contexts. A must read in cultural studies, feminist theory, and the history of race and ethnicity.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Xanadu on May 10, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is a wonderful collections of the seminal essays of Donna Haraway. Thankfully, they are also the "easiest" to understand (though Haraway is never really precisce) [she speaks about that in the book, actually]. The most informative, and entertaining, essays are The Psyborg Manifesto and her new essays on companion animals.

(in other words, read this instead of the hell that is Simians, Cybrogs, and Women)
