127 REVIEW OF BOOKS Baruch M. BOKSER, Post Mishnaic Judaism in Transition. Samuel on Berakot and the Beginnings of Gemara (Brown Judaic Studies 17), Scholars Press, Chico CAL, 1980, xxx, 543 pp., paper $15.00 (members $10.00). This volume continues and expands the work of BOKSER begun in his Samuel's Commentary on the Mishnah. Its Nature, Forms and Content. Part One. Mishnayot in the Order ofzera'l'm (Leiden 1975). His thesis in both books is that in the first generation after Rabbi redacted the Mishnah, Samuel composed an oral commentary to the Mishnah in Babylon. Substantial portions of this commentary are imbedded in the gemarot of the Babylo- nian and Palestinian Talmuds. He attempts to recover the elements of this commentary and analyze the various stages of its use, revision, and adap- tation in the stages until and as it became part of the talmudic gemarot. The earlier study focused upon material relating to the tractates of Zeracim excluding Berakot; and this one deals with Berakot. Since the topics in Berakot were the subject of very extensive discussion throughout the formative history of both Palestinian and Babylonian Talmuds, this tractate is both very complicated and very promising for the identification
