Lapin approaches the Mishnah as a source for social history by examining a single tractate from the Mishnah, m. Baba' Mesi'a'. He finds value in reading the tractate on its own terms and not as a part of the larger corpus of "rabbinic literature." The book has four chapters: "Introduction: The Social Study of the Mishnah"; "Mishnah Tractate Baba' Mesi'a': Literary and Redactional Problems"; "Institutions and Relationships in Mishnah Tractate Baba' Mesi'a'"; and "Conclusions: Rabbinic Civil Law and the Social History of Roman Galilee. He provides the text, translation, and annotations on m. Baba' Mesi'a' in an appendix. A second appendix examines the relationship ofm. Baba' Mesi'a' to other tannaitic sources.
