Her books include Crystals, Fabrics, and Fields: Metaphors That Shape Embryos (Berkeley: North Atlantic Books, 2004;  originally Yale University Press, 1976); The Companion Species Manifesto: Dogs, People, and Significant  Otherness (Chicago: Prickly Paradigm Press, 2003); Modest_Witness@Second_Millennium.FemaleMan©Meets OncoMouse™ (New York: Routledge, 1997); Simians, Cyborgs, and Women: The Reinvention of Nature (New York: Routledge, 1991); and Primate Visions: Gender, Race, and Nature in the World of Modern Science (New York: Routledge, 1989).

Haraway’s latest book, When Species Meet (Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 2008), examines philosophical, historical, cultural, personal, technoscientific, and biological aspects of animal-human inter- and intra-actions. Dogs lead the way; but strong supporting roles are reserved for dugongs, tigers, mushrooms, chickens, cats, squid, animal people, microorganisms, and whales with videocams.
