Format: Hardcover
Judith Hauptman is a professor of Talmud at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. A book review in "Shofar: An Interdisciplinary Review of Jewish Studies" states:

This work contains the results of many years of carefully reading and evaluating the relationship between the Tosefta and the Mishnah. The book has the following chapters:
(1) Rethinking the Relationship between the Mishnah and the Tosefta; (2) The Tosefta as a Commentary on an Early Mishnah; (3) Rewriting Tosefta's Halakhic Paragraphs for Inclusion in the Mishnah; (4) Condensing Aggadah; (5) Editing for the Ease of Memory; (6) From Tosefta to Mishnah to Talmud; (7) A New Model of the Mishnah-Tosefta Relationship.

This book contains a bibliography and an index that lists sources, modern authors, and subjects.
