HERE'S A PROFILE OF RABBI ADIN STEINSALTZ, Chabad Hasid and prominent Talmudist (Jewsweek). And here's a Beliefnet review of his translation of the Babylonian Talmud. But note that the review gets a couple of points wrong: the Talmuds were edited some centuries after the date the reviewer indicates (maybe he's thinking of the Mishnah?) and they were written mostly in Hebrew, with some Aramaic. I'm no Talmudist but I do know that much. If anyone knows of a review online by an academic specialist in Talmud, please let me know.
