Distinguished professor and scholar of Judaic studies, Jacob Neusner, examines the Mishnaic law of women in this five-part collection. The Mishnaic law of women defines the position of women in the social economy of Israel during early rabbinic times, both in natural and supernatural terms. These laws reflect a system in which what women do on earth provokes a response in Heaven, and the position of women in Heaven and on earth is invariably relative to men. In the first four parts, Neusner provides an in-depth analysis of each chapter within the Mishnah tractates of the law of women. In the fifth and final part, he concludes his research of these laws by explaining how they formed and changed over time.
