Expanding upon her doctoral dissertation, Cohen partakes of the timeless tradition of revisiting the Talmud for its contemporary relevance. The author's interpretive approach is that of literary analysis of the Talmud as an end in itself and not as a means of historical inquiry. She critiques the work of scholars such as Avraham Weiss, Shamma Freidman, and Jacob Neusner, before offering her "sugyaetics" applied to two women-themed sugyot from b Gittin (Hebrew text appended). Indexed by English, Hebrew and Aramaic terms, and passages cited. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
