Here's an interesting review of an interesting book by an interesting youngish scholar (as scholars go). The Rav Benni Lau is the rabbi of the congregation we are members of, and he has recently put out the second volume of his group biography of the Tanaim - the rabbis of the Mishnaic era, some 2,000 years ago, give or take a century or two. Since the book will probably not be available in English anytime soon, the review is second best and also the best you'll get.
