Donna Haraway's work has transformed the fields of cyberculture, feminist studies, and the history of science and technology. Her subjects range from animal dioramas in the American Museum of Natural History to research in transgenic mice, from gender in the laboratory to the nature of the cyborg. The Haraway Reader brings together a generous selection of Donna Haraway's work. Included is her 'Manifesto for Cyborgs' in which she famously wrote that she "would rather be a cyborg than a goddess". Other selections are taken from her three major works, Primate Visions , Modest Witness and Cyborgs and Women , as well as some of her more recent writing on animals.
