Editorial Reviews

..."contributes to a history of women's lives in twentieth-century America as well as to a history of feminism.."-NWSA Journal "Goodeve easily steers the discussion to intensely personal territory that is sure to interest Haraway's admirers. She discusses the impact of her mother's death and her adult love relationships upon her work, and the link between her Catholic upbringing and the metaphorical heart of her theory. HOW LIKE A a terrific read, and on that brings an important theorist closer to the general public."-"Puncture Magazine ..."people who seek a greater understanding of Haraway's work will find the interview well worth their time... It's most impressive attribute is that it manages to perform the integration between the personal, the political, the historical and the theoretical in a manner that is well suited to Haraway's thought."-"Kairos, April 2000 ""How Like A Leaf is a welcome door to the complex theories and personal life of Haraway...Recommended for all women's studies and academic science collections."-"Library Journal, December 1999 ""How Like A Leaf offers its reader an inviting visit with Haraway, which evolves as a balanced blend of academic discourse and informal banter housed in a deceivingly slender book, as compared to the volumes of related thought it conjures. As cyborgs, our neurons resonate the electric hum of her words--their prophetic implications racing through terminals, past each glowing plexus with the thrill of transformation, and the exactness of circuitry."-"Foreword, January 2000
