Donna Haraway writes about science like nobody else. She's exploring new territory, she's drawing new maps, she's onto something--the metaphors come thick and fast. Love her or loathe her, you ignore her at your peril. -- New Scientist
Haraway's 'modest witness' is a fascinating figure...In a contribution that is by itself worth the price of the book, Haraway produces a wonderfully thoughtful and complex account of...the interpenetration of biology and capitalism, two central players on the stage of politics...Haraway has produced a volume that richly rewards the hard work and generous literacy it demands of its reader. It is challenging, powerful, and unsettling to comfortable notions worth distressing. -- LSojourner
A mixture of passionate polemic, abtruse theory, and technological musing. -- Detroit Free Press
A conversation with Haraway is an experience you don't soon forget. -- Santa Cruz County Sentinel
It can change the way you think. -- San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle
A richness of insight, challenge, wit, and intelligence that will raise the level of discourse in anthropology, should we have the wit to respond. -- American Anthropologist
A useful and provocative attempt to expose and retell core narratives in science. . . -- Journal of the History of Biology
