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.

...Hauptman's assessment of the relationship of Tosefta, Mishnah, Tosefta Atiqta and "Ur-Mishnah" is impressive and demonstrates a remarkable breadth of rabbinic knowledge. Her book and related scholarship could serve as a catalyst for the reevaluation of the conventional wisdom concerning the assumed chronology of the Mishnah and the Tosefta. Additionally, the relationship of the tannaitic, halakhic midrashim with the Mishnah/Tosefta needs to be reconsidered as well. Her discussion of the interdependency and sequencing of rabbinic documents may change some views of rabbinic texts; there are many collections that may predate the edited documents in which they surface...
