Jacob Neusner looks at the Mishnah not as an inert collection of traditions passed on, but as a deliberate, programmatic statement of Judaism’s way of life and world view. By paying attention to how the Mishnah uses traditions for its own purposes the interpreter can appreciate the building blocks of Judaism: its politics, economics, and philosophy.This publication has also been published in hardback, pleaseclick here for details.
